I'm looking to buy parts for a gaming pc soon. I've done a lot of research trying to come up with something that will meet my needs but won't be too expensive (trying to keep the cost around $1000). Here's what I've got: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2azja
I'd like to be able to play games like Minecraft, Skyrim, CoD, BF4 -- basically anything that I throw at it -- at good FPS and in good quality. 1080p gaming would be nice if possible, but it's not a necessity.
So my main questions are: Is this a good build? Are the parts all compatible? Did I select quality parts? Are their any important tweaks I could make?
Any opinions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

That would be really good! You don't really need a cooler because you aren't overclocking!
