First time building a pc, need help

I think I did it right? I have a 1000 dollar budget (not including os) and I need a sturdy, gaming pc.

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($211.00 @ CPL Online)

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($36.00 @ CPL Online)

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard ($125.00 @ CPL Online)

Memory: Kingston Fury Black Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($89.00 @ PLE Computers)

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($62.00 @ Centre Com)

Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 3GB WINDFORCE Video Card ($249.00 @ CPL Online)

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 230T Orange ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.00 @ CPL Online)

Power Supply: XFX XTR 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.00 @ PLE Computers)

Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN881ND 802.11b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter ($18.00 @ CPL Online)

Total: $988.00

Any advice on how I can use that 1000 better is preferred, but the processor (FX-8350) needs to stay the same, as I have a brand new spare from a promotion in my company.

Thanks for the help, George.
