Default Building a computer. Need feedback asap

OK so I have been looking to build a new PC for almost 2 years now. Finally I am moving towards doing it. I am having a garage sale on Saturday (the 26th) week and would kinda like to have my computer done close to then.
Oh and I am trying to stay under or near $1000
I am getting all of my stuff from Newegg. Here is what I have thrown together so far:

Mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131013

GFX Card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143037

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103735

Memory (This was a hasty pic. If someone knows of a good deal that is compatible, let me know please):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145566

CD/DVD drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106015

Hard Drive:
I am using mine that I bought for my old computer. I may get a new one down the line.

Case:
I dont know. I want one with a clear side panel and good cooling (I worry about cooling )

If anyone sees any problems with this so far let me know please. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks

Nice pickings but I suggest this GFX card, as it is better, faster, and for less money.

I decided on this case here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144133

and upped the memory to this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145590

and also took the GFX card advice so Im gettin the EVGA one.

Do you think that the PSU that comes with the case will be able to handle this build?

Very nice choice of ram. Case is nice but don't use PSUs that come with cases unless it's an Antec case. This PSU is usually recommended.

nvm I got it. I watched a video and they use a screwdriver to get the 2nd clip on. That was much less stressful. Then the clip needed a lot of pressure too....but I got it. Im prayin that its ok.....lol *sob*

Just to add to your options, if you plan to do some overclocking I would suggest getting a DFI motherboard. I currently have the Ultra-D NF4. I think the price at newegg is around $99. It is a great all around board, and it is low in cost. The only thing is that these boards require a true 24 pin power connect. OCZ powermod is a good psu for these boards.
