~$1000 gaming PC

Hey, so this is my first time assembling a computer and I was wondering if the parts I've picked out so far are all compatible and good enough.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: tigerdirect.ca, canadacomputers.com

Country: Canada

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe; not now, but later down the road at least

Here are the parts:

I won't be building this until the end of July or so, in order to save up enough money. Any help is appreciated. Oh, and the games I want to play are StarCraft 2, Darksiders 2, Total War series, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, Assassin's Creed 3, Y's Origins and Batman Arkham Asylum/City if possible

  1. looks good except i don't know about that PSU i wouldn't risk it get this instead http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7195036&CatId=1483 you could get a 500Watt instead of the one i linked i just didn't find any decent one while i briefly looked for you on that site
  2. This one is cheaper than what i linked up above and will work fine http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=422166&CatId=5432 other than that good job your good to go when ever you have the money and yes the R7850 will play all those games maybe not on ultra/max settings but on high settings for sure.
  3. i blew a little more on the build than 1000 dollars but it seems like you didnt include the OS in your build

    yeah, i forgot to add the OS to my list.
    would the fan/heatsink that comes with the cpu be enough, or would it be better to include that cpu cooler? I probably won't be doing any cpu overclocking for a while

    thanks. what would I need to change in order to play all the games on ultra/max settings? i'm happy being able to play on high settings, so I'm just curious

    id get it now since it helps your CPU run much cooler and quieter. you can use the stock fan for now, but when you need one in the future, it might cost more than right now
