Yes, they're all compatible. I would make a couple of minor changes though; 3570K instead of 2500k. Better performance at stock, PCIe3.0, and generally better.

Get a cheaper mobo. Newegg has the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 with 8GB of free RAM now. Low profile(ish) RAM too.

Get a better GPU, if gaming is main purpose. See if you can get a 7870 or 7950.

PSU is overkill for single GPU, about right for 2x7950 or 2x7970.
