You’ll need to provide a direct link to the wish list, as there are undoubtedly hundreds of public wish lists called “my first gaming desktop.” Post the link and I’d be happy to take a look.

Update: If this is your list…

…then everything will work together, and it looks like a decent basic gaming system. I didn’t verify that the memory is on the qualified vendors list for the motherboard, but I assume you already did.

I also assume you’ll be adding a monitor, keyboard, mouse, operating system (get Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM), and speakers or headset.

I’d recommend a slightly beefier power supply so that if you later decide to upgrade your video card to something faster (like a GTX 570/580 or the GTX 600-series equivalent of the 560 Ti), you won’t have to also upgrade your power supply then. Corsair makes excellent power supplies, and I’d recommend the TX-750 V2 (~$ 95 after rebate):

You might also consider going with an Intel-based system, using a Core i3-2130 (3.4 GHz dual-core) processor and a Z68-chipset motherboard, such as this combo:

Intel Core i3-2130 ($ 149.99):

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS ($ 179.99):

Even though the Core i3-2130 has only two cores, for gaming it’ll beat the Phenom II X4 975.

Hope that’s helpful!

    I would recommend you get a better psu than that one, i once had a 550w power supply with a nvidia gts 450 and the pc kept turning off and restarting, i found that the problem was due to the lack of watts in the power supply. If i were you i would go for a 700+watt psu. Here some links:

    Hope this help!
