$1000 gaming rig recommendations

Hi guys, I am about to order my first gaming pc. However, before I buy I would like some feedback.
Here is my system please tell me if something is missing or if there is a component that can be found cheaper or an upgrade for the same price. I am only using newegg because it is easier.

If you would like just product names I can do that but links was easier.

  1. That Power Supply is overkill, and the motherboard is not enough bang for the buck. A motherboard worth around $130 should be sufficient. Also, get a Power Supply of 600w. With the money saved, buy a 7950 as your GPU. If Keyboard choice isn't that important to you, you could easily get one for under $30.
  2. What about the keyboard? Any good ones in the 50$ range.

    For $50, this keyboard has some good reviews on Newegg, but I'm not an expert in Keyboards. Also, get dual channel RAM. 2X4GB is considered better than 1X8GB
  4. Ok I have ordered everything. This will be my first build that I don't have someone helping me so fingers crossed
