First gaming build, need affirmations!

Hello, I am new to the whole building a computer thing and would like some help before I finally order the parts and put it together. My build is designed to be a gaming computer that would also be able to run 3D cad programs. I would also do a bit of recording with fraps and a bit of video editing, nothing big though. I am trying to keep the budget at around $1,000 give or take $100.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 612 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card

Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: SeaSonic M12II 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

So there it is folks! I would love to hear what you have to say about it, any feed back is good feed back!
