If you buy acheaper mobo then upgrade your RAM to 8GB low profile not to interfere with the cpu cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186
Buy an 2600k is the same like 2700k ( is a little overclocked by Intel , that you can do from BIOS raising the multiplier) and is 50$ cheaper. If don't plan to SLI ( 2 X 560Ti) buy the Corsair TX650 is cheaper and is more than enough for your build.
