This is my first time looking at building my own machine, so I'm still trying to figure everything out here, and any comments are greatly appreciated. I'm primarily going to be using this for gaming and streaming video, and I want to be able to play everything on the highest settings (I've been dealing with having to set all my games to the lowest settings on my 5-year-old Dell, and I'm getting really sick of that). Budget is up to $1500, but I'd prefer to stay closer to $1000 CAD.
Here's what I've got so far: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/IcedT3023/saved/7bzH99
Given that I don't really know what I'm doing, I have no idea if this is overkill or not. I don't know enough to be willing to mess with overclocking, so if you guys could make some suggestions on how I could make this a bit more reasonable, I'd really appreciate it. I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
