Do not OC on a stock heatsink, very bad idea, espically if you want to go all the way to 4.0Ghz you'll need to spend some money on a good aftermarket heatsink.

Would I be able to OC to 3.8?
How about the GFX card would it work with my system?

I wouldn't OC at all on a stock cooler, if you wanted to go lower than 4.0 I'm just saying you could get a cheaper aftermarket CPU.
Thats GPU will work fine with all your other parts.

It's the Super clocked edition so it would need more power. A 750 or 700 Watt power supply is good enough?

An overclocked gpu won't take more power unless you adjust the voltage, same thing with the cpu, but they will both run hotter. I wouldn't buy an OC edition GPU though, you can save the money and buy a normal one and easily overclock it yourself.

Would an HD 7850 work with my mother board and all my parts? Will most GFX cards?

something that was missed earlier - h67 chipset does not allow cpu overclocking. it only allows integrated gpu overclocking. if you get an h67 motherboard, you won't be overclocking the 2600k to anything higher than stock speed. i dunno if you mistyped your mobo model number.
if you want to overclock the cpu, you need a motherboard that allows cpu overclocking, with z68 or z77 chipset. look into asus z77 v pro or asrock z77 extreme4.
when you oc the cpu, it uses more power than it's typically rated for. the stock hsf is designed to dissipate the amount of power defined by the cpu's tdp (in this case, 95w). that is why, for overclocking a 3rd party hsf is usually preferred. a cooler master hyper 212 evo will let the cpu oc and run cool.
instead of a gtx 560ti, you can look into radeon hd 7850, like asus dcu ii or msi twin frozr, unless physx and cuda are your priority.

The motherboard is spelled right. TH67+ is it.

Hello, I have another question. IF I wanted to get the HD 7870 Twin frozr Ghz edition which is 2 6pinned would those power supplies work or would i need a better one. Also will there be extra cables for an SSD?

If its a quality PSU it'll have at least 2 6 pin connectors, these days most will actually have 4 of them.
