$1000 Canadian PC for gaming/streaming from choosemypc

I was wondering if this PC is any good. I want to do streaming and gaming at the same time. I'll want to run games from bf4 to league of legends to guild wars 2. I'm on the ropes with buying this build until i get a second opinion. I want to be sure that this is the best i can get for my bang.

I have it shipped from canada. I just didn't bother editting the graph, but i editted now =D. I have a Corsair TX 750W powersupply. Will that fit into the towercase?
Edit: Also i'm pretty new PC to parts, so i'm wondering why would your PC would be better than the one from choosemypc.

The 750W power supply has a lot of big thick cables. It barely fits into my fullfized computer case. While the new PC case and motherboard are micro. Which is why i am wondering. =D

After doing some research on benchmarks and performance of the two different CPU/GPUS i've decided to go with your build. Thanks!
