Default Building a gaming computer

I'm thinking of building a gaming computer but don't want to spend more than about $700. So I went on to newegg and and tried to put together a decent computer for my budget. Now I'd like some suggestions on what I came up with. Here is what I have so far.

Hard Drive+PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.492735

Motherboard+CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...kim2305X575088

Ram+Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...kim2305X575088

Graphics Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150436

DVD Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...kim2305X575088

Any suggestions and help would be great

Thanks Sporego, I'll look into that . Is the Intel Core i5 2.8GHz faster than the AMD Phenom II X4 3.4GHz possessor I had listed?

Its the technology behind it.
Its like running you can run really fast but only for 3 seconds
The other guy can run a little bit slower but keeps running
