So I am pretty new to the world of custom PC's and I was hoping to keep the complete build under $1500 canadian... I am struggling to fit it all haha

Here is what I have so far: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/Pandabearjelly/saved/bC9tt6

Where can I trim some fat? What would you swap in or out... Am I missing any parts that I will want or need?

Thanks!

You could save quite a bit of money by going with a comparable AMD processor and changing the motherboard so that it would be compatible with said CPU.

This is something I actually thought of this morning. What amd combination do you suggest?

I have an AMD FX-8350 with the msi 990fxa-gd65 as my motherboard. It works great especially for a system within your budget.
