Advice on mid-range gaming rig

Hi all,

Its my first time building a gaming PC so I would like some advice on the rig I've picked out.

Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 2 weeks

Budget Range: ~1300 SGD (~1000 USD)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, software stuff (e.g. Unity, Photoshop, etc.), Video streaming, Web surfing

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers - need an OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: getting them from a shop in Singapore. List of parts and prices can be found here:

Country: Singapore

Parts Preferences: Prefer a mid-tower case that fits into a 267 x 536 x 544 mm partially enclosed space (computer desk's CPU slots).

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050

Additional Comments: I wouldn't mind spending a little more for parts that have better reputation or warranty

Parts I've picked:
