So I decided I'm going to build my gaming pc instead of buying it pre built. I'm very very new to this and have no idea what I'm doing, but I gathered a parts list based on other people PC's and also looked at the reviews and picked the best options.

Will all of these parts work together, and will this make a good PC? I'm mostly going to be using it for Diablo III and maybe other games later.

That would work!
I'd probably go with 8gs of ram though. :)

8gb RAM
Hyper 212 EVO—$5 more and significantly better
A good PSU. Cooler Master isn't considered part of the top tier. I'd get a 600W unit for 6850 Xfire in the future: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You'll need a motherboard that can support Crossfire as well. I'm going on about this because it's an excellent, cost-effective upgrade: adding a second GPU gets you more value for the money than throwing away your original and buying a whole new one to match the performance of the Xfire setup. I recommend the Gigabyte Z68A-D3H-B3 at $130: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Incidentally, the 2500K is $180 on its own if you can get to a physical Microcenter store.
