Most of your choices are sensible, however I would change a couple of things

1) the case... it only has an 80mm fan for cooling - this would make your build run very warm. The best solution is for a case to have at least 1 x 120mm front fan, 1 x 120mm rear fan - this should be the minimum anyone would consider.

Antec 902 / 1200 would be perfect for your choice of components

Next up... 1000W PSU is all well and good, but a little over the top and could save yourself some money.

Finally - dont forget an optical CD/DVD drive :)

Yea take that PSU down to like 550W or something, barely anything requires 1000W
