Title says it all. Ordering today and I'm pretty certain that I've done my research and these parts are good, but just want to be 100% sure seeing as how this is my first build.

Processor - i5 2500k
Motherboard - Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155
GPU - Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB

Power Supply - Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 750 V2 750W
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM

Any confirmation is appreciated.

I am planning a build and someone told me on my thread that I should watch out for the RAM and CPU cooler, if you are using a bulky CPU cooler/ might get one, I was told to get the low profile version so both the CPU cooler and the RAM will fit. I am also using a cooler master V6GT and its massive.

I see that you don't have a third party CPU cooler but its something to keep in mind

Looks good.

FYI. I don't see a seperate CPU cooler, so I assume you'll use the stock one. If you plan to overclock, you should invest in a better CPU cooler.

if you are planning to overclock, which i dont know why you would get the 2500k if you werent, i would definitely add a coolermaster hyper 212 (+, or evo depending on how much you want to overclock) at the least

Yeah, I definitely plan on OCing, but will not be doing so until I purchase an aftermarket heatsink. I just couldn't fit it into the budget this go around, but will certainly be purchasing one soon after i build the PC.
