$850 Canadian Starter APU Build

My very first build.

Im starting with an APU for the simple reason that I wont be playing intensive games right away. I am Canadian so prices are higher and my budget is around $850 incl. 13% tax. Im only buying from the following merchants to cut shipping costs as, two of these retailers are driving distance therefore no shipping: Canada Computers, TigerDirect, Amazon.ca. I'm open to all recommendations. RAM and dedicated GPU WILL be added later. Also, I already own a 27" 60Hz, 5ms Hannspree that I will be temporarily using.

Thank you for reading.

I don't see anything wrong with your build at all. Normally I would recommend an Athlon x4 750K and a discrete graphics card. If you will be getting a good GPU later, then your plan is fine! Enjoy!
