Get a Z87 or Z97 motherboard with a minimum of 6 phases. Anything lower and your board tends to go poof after a couple of years. My recommendation would be the Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 3. Best value for money + Gigabyte boards are generally more reliable.

As for the power supply, don't misunderstand what everyone is saying and buy a big PSU. Your system overclocked needs around 600W, so rather than buying a 800W, buy the highest quality 600W you can afford. My recommendation would be a FSP Aurum S 600W or a FSP Aurum 92+ 650W.

25k for the motherboard, 15k for the PSU.
