^ If you will be overclocking, then get a better CPU cooler
CM Hyper 212+ will be a very good option...or Sunbeam CCTF

A case with better airflow might be good...somthing like Antec 200/ Antec 300...

Just noticed the monitor...such low resolution one ? The HD 5770 would be an overkill for that resolution...get a higher resolution monitor...atleast 1440X900 or above...
