Building Computer

I've decided to build my own computer for the first time and need some advice from all of you regarding the hardware. I plan on buying the components within the next week or so. The computer will be used primarily for gaming, web browsing, a the occasional movies here and there. I'd like to keep everything under $875 (Includes Shipping and tax) and wont need a monitor as I already have a 21.5" Dell Full HD monitor.

These are the parts I have chosen so far.... I am a rookie at building PC's so please let me know if all the parts fit with each other and so on. Looking to get the best gaming performance possible that $875 can buy :p
