Tried to make a the best of a 1500$ limit list, i really wanted a beast of a gaming pc/workhorse, but also something that would hold up with future needs. Anything anyone would suggest i do differently? keep in mind i really want to keep the I7 processor http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/4z8C8K

Go for a 1060, not a 960, for a little more $ and a lot more performance. You should also have a SSD.
