I'd still recommend the 2500k incase you decide to overclock, are you willing to purchase from Amazon or some other site? If you have no intention whatsoever to overclock in the future then the 2500 is a good choice and will save you a few bucks

What is your budget?
What is the build going to be used for?

RAM: Save yourself $10 or so and just get 1600MHz RAM. You wont notice any different in real world application. Corsair Vengeance and G.Skill Ripjaws are popular choices. CL9 1.5v recommended 8GB (2x4GB sticks).

Motherboard: Unless you really need an M-ATX motherboard, spend the $10 saved from the RAM on ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard. Z68.

CPU: 100% get a 2500K, not a standard 2500. The price difference is about $13 and if you get a non-K-series, you remove the opportunity to over-clock. Which quite fankly is the best reason to buy an i5-2500k, for its superior OC ability.

Other components all look good. You could again, save a little money and grab the 500w Corsair PSU over the 600w. It would still be enough power for a GTX 560Ti build.
