^ For a gaming PC, even an AMD Phenom II X4 would be a good option...You could save some money there...

CASE - IMO as you will be using only a single video card, you wont need a Full Tower,...
Check out the HAF 922/ HAF 912 cases,

PSU - That CM PSU is a very good one, stick with it...

Video card - ATI might be launching their newer powerful cards by this month-end, so you might want to wait till then before deciding on the card...

Maybe a SSD ??

Rest are good...

For 50$ less I don't recommand to go on am3 ... Stick to 1156 with the i5.
You don't need to save money, you need to spend it right.

I agree for the case, althought I'd still buy my haf 932 again, I just love it.

I wouldn't go for a cooler master psu,
I'd go for Seasonic, Antec, Xfx, Corsair. For 10$ more you may have a solid psu instead of an OK psu.

I totally agree for the graphic card, wait a little :)

^ As for the CPU, for gaming I doubt you would notice any significant difference, but its upto the OP...

As for the PSU, Cooler Master's Silent PRO and Real Power series are of very high quality comparable to the ones that you have listed...Not sure how you are saying they are just OK and not solid PSUs...
