Do the parts all work well together? ~$1000 gaming pc

Hi, I'm looking to pick up the pieces over this month/December as prices drop around Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I've already picked up the PSU/RAM on this system already, but I wanted to check to see if there's any piece that doesn't work well together or can be switched ot a cheaper (but same quality/performance) to save a few bucks. Generally I set a $1000 budget, but who doesn't like saving money?

Not included: OS/monitor/peripherals (I'm looking at that with a separate budget)
