Default First Time Build

I've been reading around on here for a while and I decided that it is finally time to attempt my own build. I came up with this:
Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151175
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119115
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103847
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128394
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227298
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341016
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136074

I came up with these parts based on the "New Build Guide" Budget Build, but I made a few changes. I was wondering I this would still work and if so, what would be a good GPU to add to it and are there any suggestions for swaps for better parts that would keep me around this budget?

I'd like to stay under $500, but I could go slightly over.

Go with
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127495
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125236

Depends on if you like ATI or Nvidia both of them bench mark out about the same.

if you can spend the extra money then this is a very good build. a single 5770 is a very solid card for gaming (from personal experience) although it does perform very similarly to a 4850 i believe

Thanks guys that helps a lot and I think my brother will be able to get me an OS for cheap through his school. Would I need to get any extra heatsinks, fans or thermal compound or anything else to start building it once i get all the parts?
