Question Building a new PC (beginner builder)

Hi guys I'm new here and I was hoping to see if any one could give me some help. I'm studying for 3d and graphic design and I need to build a pc, mind you I really don't know much about building one. I researched some of the parts but to be honest I'm not sure if they are compatible and will do the job I need. I'm going to be running Maya, ZBrush, Mudbox, Photoshop, Illustrator and 3ds Max on this new computer. So I'm assuming that it will be a bit powerful, but like I said I'm not sure if this is good or not, I know very little about building one and want to make sure it's correct, the items I chose, so as not to waste money. Any help you can give me is very much appreciated.
Here's the list:

CPU: Intel Core i5-680 3.6GHz Dual-Core Processor *($316.70 @ NCIX US)
CPU Cooler: Antec KUHLER H2O 920 110.0 CFM *Liquid CPU Cooler *($99.98 @ Outlet PC)
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D ATX *LGA1156 Motherboard *($163.37 @ Mac Connection)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory *($94.65 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive *($142.27 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB Video Card *($249.99 @ Newegg)
Sound Card: HT Omega Claro Halo 24-bit 192 KHz Sound Card *($199.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case *($49.49 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: Corsair 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply *($159.99 @ NCIX US)
