Is this a good gaming pc build?

This is my first time to ever build a computer, and I've only spent a few days on the build, and plan to spend many more before i make a final decision on all of the components, but here it is so far.

This is a link to my pcparts list:

and here it is all listed out right here:

CPU: Intel i5-3570

Also, I am on a $1000 budget.

    Everything's good except that mouse, logitech use whats called predictive lenses that force left and right movements instead of having full fluid movements when aiming. Try razer or steel series
