For your hard drive you should get at least 7200 RPM because 5400 is pretty damn slow for gaming. You should also get an i7 930 and upgrade your videocard a bit more unless you plan on crossfiring it.

The P7P55D Deluxe is compatible with 1156 i7s, but the i7-950 is a 1366. Also, the i7-950 is a waste of money since OCing the 920 & 930 is extremely easy.
