alright, its good overall but there is a few changes to make.

you really dont need a $370 mobo for anything, but i guess if you want it and can afford it then go for it.

16GB of RAM is completely overkill, 8GB is perfectly fine, but again if you want to future proof it and can spend the money, go for it.

now for the worst thing you picked. the 680 video card is almost the exact same card as the 670. so get a 670 and save some money or get a 7970.

lets get this straight. unless you are a professional DJ you do not need ANY type or sound card. the mobos sound is perfectly fine for just playing ITunes music or whatever.

nice pick for the keyboard, i use the sidewinder and love it. pick out a good mouse and you will be set

You have already an expensive mobo with a good on board audio...why spend more on a useless sound card.
I rather get an air cooler like the noctua NH-D14, drop the 680 gtx with 4GB, get a 670 gtx from models like the msi pe, gigabyte windforce 3x, evga ftw.
Get other psu, that one is terrible expensive and it's not even that good.

For extreme overclocking you'll need a full custom loop, not with that cooler, just get the noctua NH-D14, same results, more quiet, and it's cheaper.
Also what do you need that mobo for ?
Unless you're planning to do a three way or four way with the 680 gtx, but then again, you need a psu with more capacity, if it's just two ways sli, an P8Z77-V PRO or the maximus formula is more than enough for your needs.
Are you sure there's no better psus at that price range or eve lower.
There's a lot of cheaper 680 gtx or 670 gtx, for 1080p those 4GB are useless.

First, if you are spending more than $150 on a motherboard, you should be able to say one of the following:
1) I plan to 3 or 4 way SLI high end graphics cards and need extra PCI-E lanes with a PLX chip. For example, for bitcoin mining
2) I plan to use a large number of Thunderbolt devices
3) I plan to run some ungodly number of PCI-E devices. Maybe I have scientific lab equipment or am setting up a server with several hardware SAS RAID cards.

If you can't say yes to any of those, get the ASRock Extreme 4, or a cheaper motherboard than that. Anything more expensive is just money down the toilet.

It seems decent that's a micro atx mobo though, but it's the best micro atx mobo available it can trounce standard atx mobos, but i still think it's better the asus z77 pro v.

A 750w psu is enough for two 670 gtx, the asus mobo supports two way sli, also you need more two(monitors) if you want to have a triple monitor setup in the future.

The capstone psus are of high quality, i don't recommend lowering the psu for 650w, 750w is the sweet spot, it's not that expensive, just add another gigabyte 670 in the list if you want to...
