GTX 970
Ripjaws DDR3 RAM

I would like to upgrade to intel but I'm not sure if my power supply and socket type and everything are compatible.

ill be upgrading to:
Intel Core i5-7600k

Your mobo supports the cpu so that's a go.
Your going from a 125w cpu to a 100w cpu so your psu is a go.

No idea what ram your looking at, post a link.

The ram looks good so that's a go.

Just make sure you fit it in the proper slots to enable dual channel.
