Hey I just want to say thanks in advance. I have recently been looking to upgrade my computer because I'm playing games with higher requirements. I have most of the parts chosen I just want to make sure I didn't over look some detail.

Parts I Have Chosen:

Approximate Purchase Date: sometime around end of July early August

Budget Range: Want to stay to as close to 1000 as possible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Preferred Website for Parts:

Location: U.S.

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: Probably

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future

Going to get Monitor preferably 1920x1080 and am thinking of eventually going to dual monitor. I will also need to get a operating system which will be windows 7, just need to choose which one. Thanks a ton I want to make sure this build goes good. If there's anything I'm missing please let me know. Thanks again.

Looks good man, but the power supply you picked is not in production anymore and it's also way more wattage than you'll need:

I also recommend this GTX 570 instead of the 560 ti that you picked; they are both practically the same price:
or if you want a different cooler and cheaper card:
