That will make a nice PC for gaming up to 1680x1050 resolution. For 1920x1080, I would move up to a little bit faster graphics card. The 550ti will work fine at 1080p, but you will have to back off on some of the eye candy to keep the frame rates playable. If you can afford the extra expense, I would get at least a GTX 460 or 560 instead. Or an HD 6850 if you want to go AMD.

What is your budget?

If all those components comprise your total budget I would say you need get a cheaper CPU and a more expensive GPU, for a better 1080p gaming experience. Also you shouldn't need a 700w power supply. I think around a 550w should be plenty.

If you have a limited budget, why spend so much of it on a CPU?

Get a i5 2300 for ~$60 less and a decent H77/B75 board for ~$50 less. Put that money into a better graphics card.

The ability to overclock will mean nothing in gaming, unless your GPU has the power to handle the additional workload. For example, clutchc's rig above has 2xGTX570's, which can actually push an overclocked CPU.

Change the power supply. Horrible choice.

You also need 2 sticks of ram for a dual channel setup.

Like amuffin said you need 2 sticks of ram for dual channel so get 2x2gb or 2x4gb.

In the same price range as a 560Ti you can get a Radeon HD 6950 which is a better card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $199 is a really good deal for this gpu.

Since this is a gaming build you might consider spending an extra $30 to get the Radeon Hd 7850 a newer gpu that uses less power and is more future proof.
