The Canadian sub~$900 build

This is my first build, after years of student laptop gaming. I will be using it for gaming exclusively (all my media is on an external HD/Laptop). I pretty much just want to know if there is anything I should be wary of, or if there are parts/brands that I should change. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
