Looking for a Canadian Gaming PC build ($500 budget)

Hey there, my gaming laptop just broke so it is time for me to purchase a new desktop. I am read all the guides and I am still clueless as to how I find parts for a good PC so I wanted to get some help with good builds.

I am from Canada, and I want to be able to play games on High-Medium as well as stream while doing that (I am a twitch streamer). I plan on playing games like CS:GO, RUST, DayZ, Borderlands, War Thunder, etc.

My budget is ($500 CDN) and I realize that the price for shipping can become costly so if I could get the build from almost all the same place or something that would be awesome.

I do not have a mouse, keyboard or monitor but I will buy those on my own time from Kijiji or something.

Thank you and I can't wait to see some builds.

    I don't know what games you plan on playing but for
    medium high in general, get :

    core i5 / fx-6300
    gtx 660/ R9 270X
    a good 600w psu
    8 gb ram

    But this is a system that might cost 600-800 depending on the parts
  2. Yeah that is still way over my budget
  3. For a balanced gamer, budget twice the cpu cost for the graphics card.

    I have doubts about being able to meet your goals with a $500 budget.
