Here are all the parts I'm considering buying:

EVGA Geforce gtx 570 (fermi) classified
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB 7200 RPM
Intel Core i7-2600k Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
(2) Patriot Signature 8gb 240-Pin DDR3
Boxed Intel Desktop Board Extreme Series ATX Form Factor for Second Generation
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W

If someone could just let me know if this all looks good, that would be great.

What is this for? If gaming, bump the 2600k to a 2500k, and the 570 to a 7950 or 7970!

Depends what you want the computer for, for gaming he's recommending the 2500k with a better GPU to maintain price, the 2600k in these circumstances won't perform any better than the 2500k.
It is dependant on usage.

I plan to use it for gaming, however, I did some research and decided on the i7 2600k because I want to be able to upgrade my computer in the future when games take advantage of the multiple threaded architecture. Im pretty new to building computers so thats just some of my thoughts, I could be wrong.

By that time, you would probably want to upgrade anyways.

Would you consider this motherboard? P67 is outdated.

Also, to answer your earlier question, yes, everything is compatible.
