Default Core i5 Budget Build (CAN)

I would like to build a Core i5 Build for around ~800$. It would be based on:
CPU:
Intel Core i5-750
MotherBoard:

ASUS P7P55D-E


I would like a decent GPU (Monitor: 19inch, 1440x900 native)
No need for Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers or Display.

ATI Radeon 5770
Corsair TX750 ( on sale for like 80 with MIR at NCIX )
cheap but good case many cheap Coolermaster are nice
dvd burner
western digital 500GB WD5000AAKS black edition
and some 4GB G.skill, mushkin or corsair ram. Patriot are also pretty good. If no plan to OC then find some Kingston KVR.

I'd add in a Hyper 212 Plus, make the HDD a 640GB (a bit faster, more storage, and barely more expensive), and go for either an NZXT Gamma, NZXT Beta EVO, or TT V3, but yeah, otherwise that'd make for a really solid build.

Donc il y a t-il quelque chose de majeure avec le TT V3? Car il est moins cher que les 2 autre proposť par Raserei408.

Translation:
So is there a major problem with the TT V3? Because it's cheaper then the 2 others proposed by Raserei408.

He didn't post anything. Did you mean the one Martin_Metal_88 posted?

no problem it's a good case, you can add as much as fan as you like , the only problem is the cable management, but the windows is so small, you will not see it , it's also a case not tool less , I know I build 3 for customers, that's the one I use now.
