You might want something more than a 5770, something like a GTX460 would do you good for not much more at all.

Black Ops isnt a "High Powered" game, its just a crappy Console Port.

Everything else seems good. That Motherboard is very good and has 8+2 Power Phases.

lol they're vastly overpriced, if you live in the US go to newegg.com, canada newegg.ca, etc.

if you plan on overclocking a lot that, that cpu cooler isn't very good...

edit: get this PSU instead and save some money

I see that your motherboard is an overkill if you don't do extreme xfire or SLI, get this and save $60 and invest in a beast graphics card like gtx 560ti
