oh and a suitable cooling (water maybe) for over clocking.

Regards

Yes everything looks compatible.

However i'm not sure if that case will fit an E-ATX motherboard? EDIT: NVM it does.

As for water-cooling id recommend checking out the XSPC kits, they sell some really nice stuff.

Well its a fairly overkill build in almost every aspect. I also dont see a HDD in there anywhere? Might not be required, but WD Caviar Black is a nice 1TB HDD.

If its a build for gaming you could get the same performance spending half the amount.

i5-2500k
Standard ATX motherboard (p67 or z68 socket 1155)
1000w PSU (still plenty for SLI 580's)
1600MHz RAM

its is for gaming..
but honestly im just trying to make it better than my mates comp.
i was going to purchase that limited edition card.. but then i thought that was a bit of overkill, basically BF3 is coming out soon.

+1 to all. Also, I'd recommend a Crucial M4 over the OCZ SSDs since there have been widespread issues with the Sandforce controllers in those drives (along with Intel's 510).

A 1200W PSU is overkill - a good 900W can run SLI 580s with headroom.

If you're interested in watercooling, I'd recommend a full setup over just a CPU loop/closed LCS (like the Corsair Hydros, etc). A good case can natively support a 3x120mm radiator (i.e. has the mounts), and you'd see significant drops in GPU and CPU temps if set up correctly.

Good advice. However unless the OP is fairly experienced, id avoid water-cooling, there's too much which can go wrong in my opinion. Based on the build being "to beat my friends build" i'm going to go ahead and presume the OP isn't experienced with high end over-clocking and building meaning water-cooling wouldn't provide any real advantage.

+1 for the Crucial M4 though, I keep hearing good things about it :)
