your cpu is not compatible with that motherboard . i tend to stay away from samsung mechanical hdd's. always had problems with them .windows 7 home premium only supports 16 gb's of ram.
if you are going to stick to one video card i would go with a 550-600 watt psu from companies like seasonic , corsair , antec , xfx , pc power and cooling . if you plan to 2 way sli in the future bump the watts to 750-800
here is a suggestion for you

32gb of RAM? Wow, what are you doing with it? Running servers?
