Will this gaming rig be worth it?

I've been thinking about building my first computer for a while now, and I have a pretty good general idea of what I want the specs to be. I'm not sure how soon I can get the money, so this needs to last performance wise. I'm also not sure about a couple parts I want, I don't have experience so I don't know. I also dont want to spend more then $1100 (the desk and chair don't count)

Cpu. Intel I5 2500 (I won't OC)

Gpu. MSI Twin frozr 560 ti

Ram. 4 gigs for now ( I will upgrade at some point)

Case. Cooler master haf 912 RC-912-KKN1

Not to sure about the motherboard, but I'm thinking a $100-$130 Asus model

HDD. I was thinking about this, but i don't really know


Then, I will still need to get
CD/DVD Drive
Sound Card (depends how good integrated is)
(Desk+chair will come last because I'm not 100% sure where I will put them)
I will try to get all of these last things as cheep as possible

Not needed. Windows 7

I mainly want to know if it would be worth it to invest in something like this? Or do I have to spend more money?(which I can't do)
