Are you stuck on an Intel processor? It looks like you had to sacrifice a bit on the MoBo and GPU to get there. Since some peripherals are in the build, your $950 CAD build needs to be looked at more along the lines of a $750 build, at which point you have to make a bit of sacrifice to cram that unlocked i5 in there.

You could squeeze an r9 290 in there if you'd like to.

that's not a z97 motherboard so I don't know if it overclocks did they chose an overclockable board?

For that price you can get the newer cpu the i5 4690k

there's no need to go black series for your hard drive the blue is fine

i think the s340 is a nicer case in that price range

doubt those speakers will improve the sound quality

Well...Are you looking to overclock. Because if you are not, then you are wasting money on that 4670k. You might want to replace that Motherboard too. It is a little outdated. Get a H97 chipset, or a Z97 if you are looking to overclock.

You can't overclock on a H81 chipset.
