Alright, I'm looking to build a gaming computer this upcoming summer since I recently got hired at a new job. I want the computer to be able to run certain games like Starcraft II on a moderately high graphics setting, but unfortunately I am not to experienced in the field of building computers. So this is where I need some guidance, I have a build (that I will show) but its over a $1000 (about $1200 to be exact) and I want to keep it with in the price range of about $900 to 1000$ Max, I'm also not sure if all the parts are compatible with each other. So any advice on how to fix the build up to my standards would be great.

Thanks!
