[Help] New Gaming Setup [PC/equipment]

I have a 3000$ budget but no idea what to build and get my moneys worth.. I want to be able to run new games flawlessly and record in 720/1080p for youtube. Since I will be doing a lot of recording I want a fairly big HDD and a 120gb/240gb SSD for OS and few applications. sli is an option.

if possible i'd like you guys to link me prices and config for..

the pc itself
a good gaming keyboard
good mouse for gaming
good mousepad for gaming
good mic for gaming
good studio quality-ish mic for commentaries, such as blue yeti, blue snowball or at2020.
if possible an office chair
if possible a nice mid range desk

i'm canadian, so please keep that in mind when looking at the desk or chair and professional mic
