2000 Pc Build suggestions (gaming)

So I have already put together a build that I think would work well for what I want but I am completely open to suggestions because this is my first build. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mamuttusk/saved/4hlI

Approximate Purchase Date: Not for a few months I am going to buy the parts as I have the money for them.

Budget Range: Around 2000 for the base computer itself but can go over if need be.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming but possibly streaming/making videos in the future.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes but the monitor does not need to be factored into the budget (around 200 for a monitor would be good).

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference.

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Parts Preferences: Intel for the processor and Invida for the graphics I also like Corsair, EVGA, MSI, Gigabyte, and Asus.

Overclocking: Yes but not a serious overclock.

SLI or Crossfire: No one graphics card should be more than enough.

Your Monitor Resolution: I would like a 1920*1080

Additional Comments: When it comes to playing games I tend to play many different types so I would like this Pc to be able to handle pretty much anything that I can through at it.

Why I am Building: As of right now I have no computer of my own and the family computer is the greatest so I want to invest in a computer that will last me for many years to come and that I can upgrade in the future if the need arises.

Any help that is given will be greatly appreciated thanks a bunch
