I'll be using this machine to game in 4K on a 27" LG UD58 monitor. The hardest thing to decide is the motherboard for me. I've gone with the ASRock Fatal1ty because of it's array of features. I'd like to overclock in the future but it's not a guarantee. However, I'm sure I'll be adding a few more mechanical drives and an optical drive as soon as it arrives. Please let me know if I missed anything and thank you for reading.

Looks like you got everything right. Have you done this before? Keep in mind, you won't get top framerates using a 4K screen, but you have a great GPU. Your MoBo choice is good.

If it doesn't Light Up, Turn On, or Plug In, I don't want it!

Take plenty of pictures before during & after the unboxing in case there is damage.
Remove all packing, verify all components are seated & plugged in.
Connect monitor, keyboard, mouse and internet only.
Fire it up, finish OS install, GPU drivers & MOBO drivers. Register the OS.
Download Speed Fan or HWI monitor and run during all tests to monitor temps.
All the programs listed are free, make sure you download directly from their site
or at someplace like Major Geeks.
Download and create a bootable flash drive or CD of Memtest. Run it to verify your RAM has no errors.
A bad sector or 2 can cause all sorts of weird issues. If it passes move on. If not find the bad stick
and temporarily remove it.
Download and run Intel Burn In on standard, for a general stress test.
Download and run Furmark to stress the GPU.
If all is well update the OS and drivers.
Install your most used programs.
