What is that i5-2600k?

For mobo you should probably wait till your board comes back from RMA. If you cant wait till then get a cheaper board like Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H and continue your work.
There is no point in getting a 10k board for just 10-15 days.

Actually I RMA'd the board already and they gave me back a faulty one, that too waiting for it 1 month. I don't want to waste any more time on this board.

If you can stretch your budget, then get that board. Else AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 is a very good option for 10k.

I had bought the power supply and graphics card 2 years ago. Can you suggest a good alternative psu? I might upgrade my graphics card later on, but not high end..

^ Buy Corsair GS600 @4.1K, best choice for ~4K.
You may even get it for 4K, depending on your bargaining skill.

^^ price has hiked and at 4K best Op can get is a GS500 - for GS600 he needs to splurge out 800-1000 bucks more.
 
Or if you can get Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3 @~8K, it would be the best option.

Hello Mr. Asrock fanboy, do you have any idea about what are you talking?
If you are so exited about extreme4, go ahead, buy it, overclock whatever processor you have to ~~4.5GHz with LLC level 2, and if the processor remains intact after p95 testing, then congrats.
Extreme4 and extreme6 have bad llc.
