So, I ordered a OCZ ModXStream Pro Power supply - 700 Watt for my power supply and I was hoping it is compatible with my motherboard, the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3.

Is it? I sure hope so!

ATX power supply ATX mobo... win win

The short answer is yes, but the long answer is no... not all mother boards and power supplies are compatible... but as a pc builder you're going to be dealing with ATX motherboards most of the time if not all the time... just make sure your power supply is ATX compliant. It will say so in the description at the store (most are...)
