$1000 gaming system

First time computer builder. My build is going to mostly be for gaming and homework as I am a college student. My budget is around 1000 dollars I have been searching forums and this is the build I decided on but I recently found a bundle on newegg and was looking for some input and any information as this is my first build and tips would be awesome. I live in America, Georgia specifically, this computer will be almost entirely for gaming. Purchase date will be this week. Monitor, mouse , keyboard, sound not needed.
