that board is socket 1366 and core i5 750 is socket 1156. U need to look for socket 1156 motherboard with intel chipset p55 etc.
Pay attention to ram voltage ddr3 1.5v.
What about psu?
Other components are fine.

The Intel i5 750 is the CPU, so you've already picked a CPU for "gamming".

Pay attention to kuweses's comments...the Intel i5-750 is a socket 1156 so you definitely have to choose a different board. Either that or go with a Core i7.

"do you have any good suggestions?"

Get a decent power supply.

I'd move up to the Core i7.
