I think....
Ditch the i5 650, get an i5 750 because the i5 650 was made for H55 and H57 motherboards as it has an integrated GPU, the i5 750 doesn't have an integrated GPU so it was made for P55 motherboards like the one you have selected.

Ditch the graphics card unless you like PhysX and get a 5770.

Ditch that RAM, get some cheaper RAM.

thank you orish shiro for your input, ok so ill go for intel i5 750.

regarding the graphic card? 5770 is only 126-bit does it makes any difference with higher bit rate? and im not sure what you mean by PhysX..

regarding the RAM, are there any cheaper than what i picked? coz i want with a memory atleast 4GB.
thank you for your reply..

good choice for i5 750

5770 features GDDR5 memory, which is faster than GDDR3, even if it's 128-bit, it is still faster than GTS 250's 256-bit memory

don't know where you are ordering your parts from, can't suggest anything
