My first build, would like a second opinion

So I'm a first time builder and I wanna build a gaming PC. My budget is around $1000. I think all of these parts are fine, as I've done research on them, but any advice or opinions would be highly appreciated. Thanks! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/mraquet15/saved/LghmP6

I'm sorry but your build is a bit outdated, I'll get you a new one

why old tech? and only a 270?

It would be best to get a haswell, and a 9-series board. If this is primarily a gaming PC, aim for an i5 instead and get a better GPU.
