(Canada) Gaming PC including decent monitor ~$800

Looking for a decent gaming PC including a monitor and wired gaming keyboard and mouse. I already have a new windows CD ready to activate. Ideally the PC could play Arma 3 on high settings.

edit - should I have an SSD too?

I would also be willing to up it to $1000 if it made a massive difference on performance

Thanks!

I wouldn't recommend those PSU's at ALL! For a 500W PSU, you should get the CorsairCX500 Builder or the Seasonic 520W.
