I plan to build a new PC around mid-may, and I've done quite a bit of research, but I was curious about the quality of the components I've selected.

I will use this PC for mainly gaming and video editing.
I have a budget between $1000 and $1300, and I want to have the ability to buy more monitors in the future and use eyefinity. In the future I also hope to overclock my CPU and include a cooler.

I'm going to buy everything off of Newegg, here is the wish list that I've created;

How does this look, are all things compatible? and will it provide the performance that I need?
What opinions do you guys have about this build?

Thanks in advance!

The basic layout he did was this (it's a little confusing. comp = component):
-comp1
-comp2
-comp3
-comp4
or..
-comp4 option 2
-comp5
or...
comp5 option2
comp6

etc.

Just make sure that at the end of the day, you have:
CPU
CPU cooler
GPU
PSU
Case
Motherboard
RAM
