First gaming build! $800

Approximate Purchase Date: A couple months

Budget range: up to 800 dollars, no further. The total of the parts I have listed is 830, but with rebates and whatnot, it comes down to just about 800.

System usage: Gaming

Do I need OS? Yes.

Preferred website for parts: newegg. But if I can get something cheaper elsewhere, I will get it there.

Location: Florida, US

Overclocking: No

Sli: No.

Additional Comments: The case is a refurbished one from Cooler Master's site. If you see any potential problems with that, please let me know. Anyhow, this is my very first build and I am quite nervous about building it. Being an unemployed highschool student, it takes me a couple years to save up this kind of money and I'm obviously worried about screwing it up....Not sure why i'm saying this. Guess I just wanna vent a little :P

Anyhow, onto the build!

Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer

Motherboard: Biostar B75MU3+ LGA1155

CPU: i5 2400

Video card: Sapphire 6950 2gb

Memory: G.skill 8gb ddr3 1600

Power supply: OCZ 600w modular high performance 80+

Hard drive: WD Caviar Blue 500gb

OS: Windows 7 64 bit

Please tell me what you think! I am open to suggestions. Keep in mind though, this is my absolute limit cost-wise. In fact, if you see any way to shave off money without decreasing performance, (i doubt that's possible though) please tell me.
