Everything is new in this list except the graphics card (prices are what I paid) opinions? Should be exceptionally great for 1080p gaming! (Please note I've already got a 480GB SSD for Windows + software and a 1tb HDD for games

Install the fans first. Then install the PSU and pre-route your cables for exactly what you need. Space is going to be tight, and this'll make it easier to work with while you still have as much room as possible.

 

The motherboard should be second to last, with all of what you can install in it already installed (do not install the video card). Then install the motherboard and plug everything in. The video card should be the last thing to plug in.

I would pretty much agree with everything above. PSU definitely first, ESPECIALLY if you're using a semi modular power supply. 

 

My Corsair 380T has a similar layout to the Core V1 and thats more or less how I installed everything. Start from the bottom and work your way up.
