I've never built a PC before, but it's something I'd like to do now that my Steam library is growing and my laptop is really showing it's age. I came up with this kind of randomly, mostly trying to balance cost and user ratings for the majority of the parts (besides the CPU/GPU). The only parts I actually have for a PC are a Mouse and headphones, so I need an OS, Monitor, Keyboard, etc.
I am looking to hopefully spend around $1000 on this build, and no more than $1250. I've always kind of been partial to Intel CPUs and AMD GPUs, but if there are better price/performance pieces from other brands, I'm open to suggestions. Feel free to suggest entirely different builds in the price range as well, I guess.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Keep in mind I live in Canada.

if this is going to be a gaming computer you're better off going for a cheaper processor and a stronger gpu.

also, if you have a preference for amd cards you might want to wait until the next batch is released.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

Here's something a bit better than what you had:

And if you can swing some extra money, consider getting http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvr795wf33gd for your video card instead.
