Default First build ever (computer noob)

So yeah, I am pretty much the average noob who probably is spending a lot of unnecessary money on the new computer I am purchasing. So anyway, I game a lot and I have decided to spend a lot of money on a new computer, so I will write everything I am purchasing here and hopefully you guys can see if I am making a huge mistake somewhere!

Cooler Master HAF 932
Corsair Powersupply TX 850W 140mm fan, 4x PCI-E 8-pin
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2, X58, Socket-1366
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 12GB
Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-920 4,8GT/sec, 8MB, Boxed
EVGA GeForce GTX 295 1792MB PhysX
Seagate Barracuda® 7200.12 1TB SATA 3.0Gb/s, 32MB, 7200RPM

One specific question. The Quad Processor I am purchasing, is it any good? I am really not familiar with processors these days.

That is pretty much going to be the stuff I purchase. I excluded a couple of minor things not gaming related such as a dvd burner and random stuff. I play games on a 24" monitor. If anyone has any other reccomendations, feel free to let me know.
