Need second look for 1440p gaming build!

Hey guys ! I need some help with this build, my current PC is 4 years old and is somewhat dying..
This build need to be able to handle a 1440p monitor as i plan buying one in the near future. And a 1080p second monitor for internet and streams.
I plan playing some ArchAge, BF4, Whatch Dogs, Skyrim, Far Cry, Wolfenstein: The new order etc...

Here is the build: I Picked mostly orange parts because i would really like an orange build but it's not necessary if i can save a few hundred dollars.. 1500 CAN$ Max, 1200 CAN$ ideally!
Thank you !

120gb SSD as boot drive
