Default First time builder hoping for some help

I am going to attempt my first build and was hoping for some help. Please let me know if I should stay away from anything or if I am going in the wrong direction. I do not plan on overcocking at all. I was also wondering if my power supply was over kill. Any advice would be a great help on any of the items i'm looking at, I put more than one for most because I could go either way. I am looking for the best setup from the below listed items and if there are any better alternatives please let me know. I'm still learning. I did choose full tower cases because they seem to be the best constructed and have easy to clean filters. If there are any amazing mid tower cases that would be great to know. It seemed like the nvidia 460 gtx graphics card was the most bang for you buck too but if there is anthing better for the price range please let me know

thank you!

I would really like to get the most bang for my buck at $1000.00 but I could go over if there is a huge difference. THank you!

I was also thinking about upgrading to the i5 2500k
