Hello my name is Rob

I'm going to build a new computer but im unsure if all the parts i have chosen will be compatible with each other.
here are the parts i have chosen

Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Socket 1155 VGA DVI HDMI 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 SoundCard - PCI-Express
Gigabyte GTX 560 OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium w/SP1
NZXT Phantom Black Full Tower Case
G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory Kit CL9 (9-9-9-24) 1.5V
Coolermaster GX 650W PSU
LG GH24NS70 24x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive - OEM Black
Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Would you like to tell us what resolution is your monitor?

I don't recommend that you get the H60 cooler. If you want it to cool well, it will be really LOUD! Water cooling still uses fans. You are better off with a quality air cooler.

That being said, you don't need a full tower case.

Besides that, everything else looks fine.
