case: fine choice, but i recommend is about the same price, and I find lights and sounds annoying when I'm using a computer.

motherboard: good

PSU: thats a little much, but go for it.

Processor: just get the 2600K, you will save your money.
most people just get i5's anyways....

RAM: fine

HDD: good, you may want more... but I dont know what you will use it for..

your total is 855 and you dont even have a graphics card. and in the title you stated its a gaming computer, so you need to get a graphics card. (integrated wont do games)
I suggest getting a 6670 if you are cheap, and a 6870 if you want to do more powerful games. Remember that there are chocies in between, along with nvidia cards. Go ahead and check out some cards.

What kind of usage will you be doing??

You need to redesign the whole thing. For a $1000 build you shouldn't be spending less than $300 on the GPU (for a gaming machine).

my build
Case: coolermaster storm scout $69.00 Amazon, mobo: asus maximus iv gene-z amazon $169.00,Cpu: i5-2500k $214.00 Amazon, Ram: Crucial ballistics sport ddr3 1600 2x4g $45.00 Amazon, Psu:galaxis 650w 80+ modular $49.00 PcDirect, Cooling: coolermaster v8 cpu cooler $29.00 after mail in rebate Newegg, Gpu: Asus ENGTX 560 dcII 1gb ddr5 Normally in $250.00 range but found on ebay for $149.00
Even if you have to spend the extra for the gpu this totals $825 you can use the rest for a good Hdd and small ssd for SRT.
I can play any game that I have tried and expect no problems for the next couple of years until ivy bridge has been out long enough to work out all the glitches in the boards and prices mellow.
With the ssd win7 loads from push button to log on in 18 seconds and games load in a flash.
