possible build for a 1000$ CAD, what do you guys think/suggest

i'm looking to build a gaming pc for my little brother...

Here's the list of parts, that i think, might work great. And nothing is going to be overclocked

CPU: AMD FX-8320
CPU cooler: cooler Master Seidon 120V
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
Memory: G.Skill Ares 8Gb (2x4GB dual channel) DDR3-1866MHz
System Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
Data Storage: some old laptop 500Gb laying around (no cost)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5
Case: Antec Three Hundred Two
PSU: Antec Basiq Plus 550W Semi-Modular (for cable management, and hiding behind the mobo back plate)
No ODD...
And i have a windows 8 key laying around...

P.S. it's going to be connected to a 1080p 50''

More about build 1000 cad guys suggest
  1. everythings good, except that processor is far superior than the video card... try getting the fx 6300 OR an i5, and get a better card like 770 atleast... performance in games will be much better. also the mobo is amazing, but in whole honesty, does your brother realy need a boot to bios button, or all of those tweaks the sabertooth offers, get something a bit cheaper and get a gtx 770
