I'm completely new with building my own computer. I've been researching parts here and there, getting advice from friends who've built theirs. I'm looking to make a computer that will run high to ultra settings for most games. Here is a list of all the parts, feel free to recommend me anything that would do better for my buck. My price so far seems to be around a $900 / $1000 budget. I have an 8GB DDR3 SDRAM, 1TB SATA III 7200RPM hard drive, and optical drive that I plan to use with this.

I'd greatly appreciate the help figuring out if these are all compatible.

Additional information.
I'm most likely going to use Windows 7, I've heard Windows 8 doesn't do that ell with gaming. Any suggestion on the two of those would be lovely aswell.

Everything but the PSU and cooler.

Change the PSU to a 650-750w unit form XFX. Better quality for less money.

Change the Cooler to a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo. MUCH better cooler for like $4 more.

I would use win8.1. It is significantly faster than 7. I have had ZERO issues with it for gaming.
