First off what is the budget here? Xclio cases are pretty much junk. As is the Corsair GX series, I hear the OEM isn't that good. The HX and AX are made by Seasonic, the TX are made by Delta Electronics, and the CX is made by CWT.

If the use is gaming - that motherboard / CPU setup is major overkill. Drop it to this:

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And then upgrade your case and PSU to this:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also that 1.65V RAM won't sit well with Ivy Bridge, you'll need something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Otherwise good choices for the most part.

I would like to keep my budget between 1500-2000, including the monitor, keyboard and whatnot. I will take a look at those products real quick.

Wish i had a budget like you man. But looks like everything is compatible. I would suggest a different HDD tho.

For $1500 you can definitely get a way better system than that - and like I said - avoid Xclio, their cases are pretty much junk.
Try something like this:
