Hello everyone, I am building my own PC within the range of Christmas, and I need some tips.

I have $1000 Can to spend, and I am looking for a computer that can game, and most likely Stream.

I am looking for a good Processor, one that will allow me to game, and stream with ease.

For a graphics card, I would like a Nice beefy one.. One that will allow me to play games with ease.

I will as well, most likely be getting 8GBs of RAM and possibly 1TB of storage.

For the rest within building a PC, I need some tips..For motherboard, cooling etc...

I am as well, not buying a Monitor for my self, I may ask a family member for one.

For OS: I would like to get Windows 7, no Windows 8 for me.

For my CPU and GPU, I do not care brand they are.

Perfered websites: Amazon and newegg.ca

I will also be buying a used case for my self to use.

I will as well never be Overclocking my CPU at any time.

I would like to thank you all for reading, and appreciate your help.

This is fine for streaming, gaming, and not overclocking.
Included Windows 8.1 because it's overall faster.
