Building a PC (Spec check-up)

I'm currently building a machine based around gaming for around $1000. I was wondering if someone could look over my specs, give me some feedback on if it'd be worth-while, and possibly correct me on mistakes I'm making.

Sorry if posting links is against the rules.

    Looks good. A few recommendations though, if you're only gaming, you'll only need the i5-4670, and with the money save you could get a 770 or a r9 280x.

    Sorry, but a completely new specs list is probably the least helpful when I was asking for tips on the one I currently had up. Thanks anyway.
