Compatibility Check

While I'm sure that the number of compatibilty check posts must be annoying to many of the members of Tom's Hardware, I have one. Like every compatibility check poster, I'm a complete newbie when it comes to assembling computers. Anyway,here are the parts I wish to check. If there are equivalent options that sell for less, please let me know.

Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor
Radeon HD 7970 Video Card
X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card
Seagate 2TB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Desktop Hard Drive
CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I haven't chosen a case or fan yet (by the way, does this motherboard take a full ATX case?), and the monitor and speakers are more of an afterthought. Thanks for reading my post, any help is very much appreciated.
