I would choose a Z77 motherboard instead of a Z68.
When you pick one then look at the motherboard supported vendor list for ram, (QVL), and pick out something that it shows as compatible.

might want to reduce the PSU, that seems like a lot of juice for your build although
In the new egg calculator, it seems you will be using 599W, so it might be enough. Assuming this is a gaming PC?
