I've budgeted myself ~$1500 CAD to build a gaming rig with some longevity and future upgrading capabilities. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on improvements that could be made. I'm trying to stick to a mostly white/black color theme. Any case fan suggestions would also be most helpful. Thanks in advance!

The revision. A little more pricey, but manageable. Thanks for the input! :)
