Default First Computer Build

I'm new to building computers and I'm not sure whether this builds parts are all compatible with each other, and I am also wondering if it will be a decent gaming build.

CPU

RAMx2

Case

Mobo

HDD

DVD Burner

Power Supply

Video Card

Any advice you can offer is great advice! Thank you!

Looks good, on the HD go with the Samsung spinpoint F3. Its cheaper, faster and more reliable than the caviar black.
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

PSU looks good corsair its a great brand. But look into modular there awesome I like this one.
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 (CMPSU-650HX) 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Everything else looks fine, looks like you gonna go bulldozer once it comes out?

The motherboard that he linked to is not Bulldozer compatible. It is a socket "AM3".

I updated the build to the ASUS Crosshair V Formula which is AM3+, and also you mentioned the modular power supply above. What exactly is better about those?
