Default New Build - Ready to purchase

Ok this is my first time building a PC, and I've think I've done my research. I just need to make sure that this will work. I'm looking to game all current games on high settings at 1080 resolution. No multitasking really, just gaming.

Here's what I already have and it cannot be changed:

PSU: Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan

HDD: Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM

Optical: Samsung SH-S223B/BEBE 22X DVD+-RW SATA DVD Writer Black OEM

Monitor: ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers

Now here's what I'm ready to buy, provided this will all work together:

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Mobo/CPU: i5 750 and Asus p7p55d-Pro

GPU: XFX HD-585X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

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

I do want to eventually get another 5850 for crossfire. As for overclocking, I'm not looking to do it immediately as I have no experience with it, but maybe in the future.

What do you guys think? Will this work?
