So I have all the parts I would like to buy in my cart but I want some opinions to know if the parts will work together and be compatible as this is my first build.

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

ASUS P7P55D PRO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

All this will be on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Main use will be gaming (not hardcore "balls-to-the-wall") Playing SCII, WoW, Civ V, possibly Diablo III and vairous games off Steam.

Is there any possibility of getting a second Video Card (same one) or is there no room?
Let me know opinions on brands and the like as this is the first time I've done this and would like some feedback on how I did and if there's any major upgrades that I could without spending much more.

Id swap out the hdd for the spinpoint f3 1tb model. Its cheaper and faster. Yes your setup will allow you to go sli in the future.

Consider dropping to 4gb of ram instead of 8gb though. 8 is a little overkill, you'll never use it all. 4gb will play any game you want it to.
