Thoughts on my first Gaming PC setup?

So I've seen the PS4 and XBOX One and I've decided just to switch to PC gaming as I have a few friends who are PC gamers (who previously owned consoles) and they say that PC gaming is a lot more fun compared to that on consoles. I had also had a try on BF3 on my friends PC and loved the 64 player action and how smooth the game ran compared on console, therefore I have decided to build my own. Here's the things I plan to include. My budget is £1000 and I've just hit £999 xD.
I've also included a few fans for my case as I definitely will be overclocking my CPU and my GPU. Please give me your opinions and if there is anything you would change.

    Hi there , remove the 200mm case fan , you don't need that even if you're overclock. Also change your power supply to http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-corsair-enthusiast-series-tx650m-modular-85-eff-80-plus-bronze-sli-crossfire-eps-12v-quiet-fan-

    Everything else seems fine , if you can get a front fan controller such as the Bitfenix recon. The 120mm fan you chose is quite loud on full speed so you might want to control it yourself ( From personal experience )

    Good luck :)
