Gaming system build help

I'm looking to buy & build my uncle a new gaming(MMO's) PC and need your help. His PC is outdated and is having a hard time keeping up with the rest of the family so we decided to all chip in and buy a new pc. Would like it to be upgradable later on, be it GPU and CPU, overclock able and dependable. Here's what I came up with for a $1000 http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3ctCp . He doesn't need OS, monitor, KB, mouse and the screen is 1080. are these good components and the best for under $1000? Thanks
