Ok, so I'm a noob at building computers, so I'm seeking some advice about part compatibility. I'm listing the parts below.

Intel core i7-2600K Sandy bridge 3.4GHz Quad-core
EVGA GeForce 570 HD 1280MB PCI Express 2.0 x16
ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws series X 8GB (2x4gb) 240-pin DDR3 1600
Cooler master hyper 212
XFX Core Edition PRO 850W
Omega striker 7.1 channels PCI interface Audio card
Wester digital caviar green 1TB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
Antec DF-85 Black ATX Full tower computer case

Anything missing? Or maybe some suggestions?

Drop the P67 board it's overpriced, drop the Caviar Green, saves little power but way slower than a 7200 RPM drive.

If you're going to be just gaming, the 2600K is not worth the extra 100. The 2500K performs just the same for 100 less. As said get the H212 Evo. You also don't need a sound card, it's not worth it and MB sound is pretty good nowadays.

Check out my build guide for $850 here:

Cheaper and still offering similar performance. I say this because with the 560 Ti OC TFII I recommend it performs at the 570's level for cheaper and cooler.

Agree with everything suggested so far. Certainly make sure your HDD's are 7200rpm.

It might also be worth checking out a z68 GEN3 motherboard:

or
ASRock Extreme4 GEN3
