First build 750-800 gaming system

I'm thinking about putting a pc together (first time), I'm looking to stay around $750-$800 before tax. I was thinking of these parts, will they work together, are there any better options I should look at?

CPU: i5-2400


GPU: evga gtx 560 Ti

ram: 4gb gskill ripjaw

psu: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3

case: antec 300

hdd: western digital 500gb @7200 rpm

dvd drive: asus drive

This comes out to $754.37. Thanks for any help! :)

  1. get this motherboard. same price, but has USB3 and SATA 3 for future expansion.

    get the Galaxy version of the 560 ti, $229.99

    try a Rosewill Challenger case: $54.99

    get this memory, exactly the same, no useless heat shields, $25.99:

    you only need the 500W version with that GPU $53.99 w/ promo code

    Spend about $10 more for double the space and a good SATA 2 HDD: $59.99
