Hey guys, I'm looking to build my first ever computer, since I heard it was a lot cheaper than prebuilts and not that difficult to do. I put together a build off newegg that's a little expensive, but various people have told me it's basically futureproof. What do you guys think?

Monitor: Acer P215HBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD WideScreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 50,000:1 (1,000:1)

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

MOBO:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

GPU: XFX HD-577X-ZNLC Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model

HARD DRIVE:
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

DISK DRIVE: LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

CASE: Rosewill FUTURE Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case,come with Four Fans-2x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan,1x Top 120mm Fan,1x Rear 120mm Fan

PSU: Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply

Grand Total=$831.94

That's including shipping and before rebates, of which I believe $30 are available. So all in all it'll run me about $800, couple hundred over my budget but I can squeeze it in, for a hopefully futureproof system that will be able to run all the newest games smoothly at high to max settings. What do you guys think? Will this all work together, and make for a good gaming pc capable of playing BC2, COD:BO, WoW, HoN, and BF3 when it comes out?

I don't see an OS listed. Note that only full "retail" licenses are legally transferable to a new computer or motherboard. So unless you have an extra full "retail" version of Windows, you will need to buy a new license, or use a free Linux alternative. To be clear, an OEM license that came with, or was bought for another computer is NOT transferable to your new computer.

I also don't see a keyboard or mouse.
