I would like to know if these parts will go together and be a good gaming computer for the money.

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case and BIOSTAR A770E AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD for 89.98

OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W ATX and AMD Phenom II X2 555BE for 123.99 plus I get a 10 dollar gift card

A-DATA 2GB DDR2 800 for 42.99

All of these come from Newegg with free shipping

Lastly a HIS Radeon HD 5750 IceQ 1 GB (128bit) for 132.99 with free shipping from Amazon.com

All comments are greatly appriciated. By the way this is a first time build

Well, you'll still need a hard drive and an optical drive. Do you need an OS? Keyboard and mouse? Monitor?
Although I'd probably prefer 4GB, a X3 or X4 CPU, and the PSU is overkill (a quality 500W PSU would suffice), it is very hard to argue with those prices. If your budget is tight, that's pretty good.
Otherwise, depending on your resolution and the games you play, the HD5750 may be weak. If you're at 1280x1024 or 1440x900, you should be fine; maybe even at 1680x1050. I'm playing my primary game (Guild Wars) these days at 1920x1080 with only a HD4850, and it runs well; I probably couldn't say the same about Dragon Age: Origins though. Just check benchmarks for the game you play to decide if that video card will be enough.
