Are These Components Compatible?

I am building a new gaming computer, and I just wanted to make sure that these components were compatible, before I spent $1200 on them to find they don't work together!

Anyway, here they are as follows:

NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Western Digital AV-GP WD10EURX 1TB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Antec EarthWatts Platinum Series EA-550 550W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Power Supply

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-16GBXL

ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

I've already done some research myself, and found that most of the components are compatible, but I just wanted to ask someone who may already have some experience in building PCs before just jumping in.

Thanks in advance!
