First Build - $1000 Gaming PC Please Critique/Help!

Hello everyone. First let me say thank you for taking a look. This is my first build. I know near nothing about computers except for what I researched over the past two days. I think I did a decent job but that is what I would like all of you to check. I'd love any suggestions in modifying this build, as long as it stays around $1000 (+- $50).

Again, I appreciate any help. Thank You!

Check out this RAM, a bit faster and cheaper. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f314900cl9d8gbxl

Are you overclocking the CPU, if you are everything else is just fine.
