Opinions on a new build!

Hello to all

I'm currently looking into build a rig, since my old alienware is a dinosaur. Budget around 1100ish, system is only going to be for gaming. I'm looking to get everything new so ive been used newegg.com as a guide on pricing.

I'm looking to build around the Intel i5-750

Motherboard I have in mind is the GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P

everything else I'm pretty much up in the air with. On the case i have been looking at the HAF 922.

Let me know of your inputs and other thoughts to fill in the blanks for things i need.
