First Time Builder, Advise/Will This Work?

Hey Everyone,

I am planning on building my first computer which will be used predominantly for gaming, (Steam/Starcraft II) as well as simple video editing and music production.
I currently have a 24" Orion TV that I will use as the screen, but everything else needs to be purchased.

This was what I was thinking:

-RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply
-ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P
-Razer Marauder StarCraft II Gaming Keyboard
-CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMT4GX3M2A1866C9
-ZOTAC ZT-60901-10M GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
-Logitech G700 Black 13 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Gaming Mouse
-Western Digital WD Blue WD7500AZEX 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Will this work?

Thanks for the help!

    My budget is about 1000 dollars. I got a 24" Orion tv for Xmas that I will be using as my monitor. I am happy with these parts, unless anyone has a suggestion for something different.
