Default Help, My first gaming pc Build..

Hey

I am quite new to building pcs, and this will be my first build ever
i am wanting to build a gaming computer that will be able to handle new games with good performance. i would also like it to last atleast a couple of years without upgrading constantly


MotherBoard -Asus Motherboard P5KC Intel P35 LGA775 Core2 Quad / Core2 Extreme / Core2 Duo PCI-E DDR2 ATX (MOTASUP5KC)
CPU -Intel CPU Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 95W
Graphics Card-BFG GeForce 9800GTX 512MB Graphics Card DDR3 PCI-E Dual
PSU -Corsair PSU 750W CMPSU-750TX ATX12V
Case -Xclio case A380 plus - black
RAM -Corsair 2048MB TwinX XMS2 6400 DDR2 Memory Kit
Harddrive -Seagate 250GB Barracuda SATA II 300 7200rpm 16MB cache

These where the components i found. But i was not entirely sure if they were all compatible. i am also open to alternative ideas or suggestions to improve also please tell me if there's anything missing that i need for my Build
thanks in advance for the help
P.S sorry for the bad english
