Hi, I'm going to be building a gaming PC for around $1500 or less. What do you think of this build? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pR3923 If I could get it cheaper with the same efficiency, then that is preferred. Thanks.

Thanks for the build. I'm in Canada so it's more expensive if I buy from Canadian sellers. $1800, to be exact. Is the 3GB video card, worth it?
