Default Build for Cousin

Hey guys, it's been a while since I've been on here. Anyways, my cousin asked me to put a build together for him, and he wants an i5 (not sandy bridge) and an ATI GPU. for under ~$850 for all of the parts below (others I already have). How's this build look?

Case:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Mobo:
Newegg.com - EVGA P55 FTW 200 SLI 141-LF-E658-KR LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM

i5/GPU:

Looks good. Why does he not want Sandy Bridge?

Idk, he just told me he didn't want one. Maybe because of the chipset issue with the SATA ports.

I believe that Intel has resolved that issue recently. Source.

Unless hes highly overclocking, the mobo's overkill.

I was gonna get him to a ~4.0GHz 24/7 OC. Idk much about 1156 mobo's, but is there another suggestion you have?

If you could get a cheaper mobo and oc less, I would put more money into the gpu. Same deal with the case.

Yeah, I tried to get him a different case, but he's set on that one. As for GPU, that'll be fine with him as he will only be playing games that it can easily handle.
