looks good, suggestion: If you think you might SLI the 580, you might consider getting a larger psu. I don't know the power requirement for that card, but 800-850 should do the trick.

Is this computer going to be used for gaming? If so, I'd recommend getting the i5-2500k instead of the i7-2600k. Only because when it comes to gaming, I don't think you will notice a difference between the two. Maybe you can put that extra money toward an SSD, CAS 7 RAM, or upgrading your PSU.
