Would this build be okay ...

... For what I need it to do? I'm hoping it's able to play games like Starcraft 2 at a decent framerate.

Purchase date: A week or so

Budget: $700 - $750

System Usage from most to least important: Gaming, school.

Parts not required: Monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers.

Country of origin: United States

Overclocking: Nope

SLI or Crossfire: Neither

I've got this lined up, and it comes up to a total of $733.92 with $7.74 shipping.

CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz

Mobo - GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0

GPU - XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB

PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W

HDD - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.0Gb/s 7200RPM

Case - Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower

Optical - SONY Optiarc CD/DVD

Ram - G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3

OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 – OEM

I'm assuming that it's all compatible, so if I could get some clarification on that it would be appreciated. Otherwise, I'm open to changes with the build so long as it fits into the budget.
