Everything should be compatible here. But your missing a power supply and your burner is sold out. Also i have a 5670 but the Asus version and the card should serve you well.

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W -$70
ODD: SAMSUNG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-/+R 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive -$70 This is a combo drive so it should be able to read all types of disc like DVD, blue-ray etc.

Everything looks good, though I do suggest a few tweaks...

Monitor: Asus VE248H Black 24" - I like the monitors Asus has, they are usually stylish and good performers. Your Gateway will still work, however. $234

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X - Since you're new at this, I think you should get a motherboard that uses UEFI, which is much easier to use than the old BIOS Gigabyte boards use. I don't know why UEFI isn't available on all Gigabyte boards. If you're wanting a more high-performance board, I would go for the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX, but that is tailored to gamers and enthusiasts. $144

Graphics Card: SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 - I would get a more mid-range graphics card. This is essentially a rebranded 5770. The design of this card makes it a little cooler to run since the fan covers the entire PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and not just the immediate area around the GPU itself. $124 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - This is less expensive, but, if you get two of these, you don't have to use as many RAM slots, unless you want 16GB of memory. I use this RAM in my AMD machine. $35 per kit

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz - I suggest this CPU. In real-world performance, you won't notice much difference, in fact, this CPU can be overclocked to 970 levels. If you are doing any encoding or editing of videos, I would go for the six-core AMD Phenom II X6 1090T since most of those programs can use all of the extra cores. $119

Also, I don't suggest wireless keyboard and mice if you are in an area where there may be radio interference or gaming. Personally, I find wireless keyboard and mice annoying, having to replace the batteries. Unless you are using this PC has an HTPC or really need the ability to watch Blu-Ray movies, you may want to just get a basic DVD drive. However, if you are burning Blu-ray movies or discs, I would get the Sony Blu-ray Burner BD-5300S-0B OEM. That is an OEM drive, so cables and screws are not included.

1. Produce images with greater dynamic contrast.
2. With Edge-LED lighting they can be extremely slim. Models on the market can be approximately one inch thick.
3. Offer a wider color gamut when RGB-LED backlighting is used.
4. Less environmental pollution on disposal.
5. Higher price.
6. Generally 20-30% lower power consumption.

There is no difference between an LED monitor and an LED/LCD monitor, they are the same thing. LED is the backlighting method used to view the LCD panel. Older and low-cost LCD monitors use CCFL or cold cathode fluorescent lamp instead of LED's. Because of this, CCFL's are not as environmentally friendly, fluorescent lights contain small amounts of mercury, nor are they as energy efficient, nor do they offer as good of contrast. LED LCD monitors still have all the caveats associated with LCD technology, however, as does CCFL LCD's because the display technology, LCD, isn't any different. This episode of Tekzilla has an LED TV teardown which is fascinating since LED TV's are the same as LED computer monitors. Skip to 16:07 to view that segment.
