Opinion on this build

I've decided that it's time to upgrade (or I guess completely build a new computer) so this is what I have tentatively chosen so far. My budget is around $1000, and this seems to fit in that range while still producing a decent gaming desktop (?). Basically, I would like any feedback regarding potential hardware issues/conflicts that may arise from this configuration and any alternatives that may work instead. Much appreciated.
