Default Would these computer parts work in my gaming pc that i am planning to build?

I am 16 years old and have been doing plenty of research and I have finally decided what computer I would like to build. I have many parts in a list that I believe will go together but as I am inexperienced I would be greatful if someone could tell me whether this combination should theoretically work. If not then what substitutes would you suggest? As regards to my budget its around £1000 :D
These are the parts:

Get the 2600k i7 processor. Its a little cheaper and you can overclock it to 4.8 ghz stable, with your current cooling system you have probably 4.2ghz...honestly get a liquid cooling kit, they are down to 100 USD now so no reason you shouldn't. the 2600k at 4.8 ghz will out preform almost any rig. Even the new Ivy Bridge chips coming out at the end of the month.
