Hey all, thanks in advance for any help here!

So, I've been out of the PC gaming loop for quite a while now and I've finally got the cash to pony up and buy myself a real beast of a gaming desktop. (And before anyone suggests it, I have zero interest in a gaming laptop and I'm waiting to acquire any new consoles, so this is strictly about a Gaming Desktop.)

After much Google-fu I've settled on purchasing my new PC from NCIX. I'm Canadian so purchasing from an American company is out of the question due to our currently horrible dollar value so I mean to stay within my own country for purchasing.

The last time I bought a new PC I was cheap with my money and wound up disappointed at its abilities so now I'm trying to go all-out so that it'll keep up for the next few years. I have a very nice 24" screen at home already so that's not down here.

Here is what I've got planned as my purchase:

Impact R2 Tier 2…

1 x ASUS GeForce GTX 960 Strix OC 1253MHZ 2GB 7.2GHZ GDDR5 DVI HDMI 3xDisplayPort PCI-E Video Card
1 x Seagate 2TB 3.5in SATA3 64MB Cache Internal Solid State Hybrid Drive SSHD for NCIX PC
1 x Intel Core i5 I5-4460 Haswell 3.2GHZ Processor LGA1150 6MB Cache Retail
1 x Please Use The Heatsink Included With My CPU
1 x ASUS B85M-G R2.0 mATX LGA1150 B85 DDR3 2PCI-E16 PCI -E SATA3 HDMI USB3.0 Motherboard
1 x Corsair Vengeance Pro Blue CMY8GX3M2A1600C9B 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9 1.5V Dual Channel Memory Kit
1 x Corsair Obsidian 350D mATX Black Window Gaming Case 2X5.25 2X3.5 2X2.5 Front USB3.0 Audio No PSU
1 x Corsair CX Series CX500 500W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze Power Supply 120mm Fan
1 x Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64Bit English DVD OEM for NCIX PC
1 x ASUS DRW-24F1ST 24X SATA DVD Writer Black
1 x Please Use The Onboard Sound Card Integrated On My Motherboard
1 x Please Use The Onboard Network Ethernet Card Integrated On My Motherboard
1 x Bitfenix BFA-ACL-30GK15-RP Alchemy LED Connect Lit Strip 30CM 15 LEDs - Green *OEM*
2 x Bitfenix Spectre Pro BFF-LPRO-12025G-RP 120mm Green LED Case Fan 1200 RPM 56.22 CFM 18.9 dbA *OEM*

This build, including their assembly (since I have no clue how and would rather avoid doing it myself) and my few added mods, plus shipping, taxes and insurance will cost me just under $1500 CAD.

So, what do you all think? Will this adequately meet my Gaming needs? Am I getting ripped off? Am I going above the tech requirements I'd really need to game smoothly? Does anything stand out like it might not be beefy enough to keep up with other components? Thanks a bunch!

TL;DR I'm not very knowledgeable regarding computers and I'd just like some outside opinions as to whether or not this is a good buy for me as a gaming desktop.

Well seems I haven't updated my journal in over a year. Oops? My last one bespoke of my 2014 summer plans so I suppose I can mention what I'm doing this year. I scored a position as Head Baker at a swanky resort lodge, where people go to play golf and watch sunsets from expensive rented decks in front of their lavish cottages. And I'm finally done college, so yeehah there, so glad my schooling is done. I'd had enough of homework and being forced into group projects with people half intelligent as they should be.

Still trying to get back into photography, maybe this job will give me more opportunity for food photography, since I'll be making all the desserts and breads and plating desserts for dinner service. I'll be in an absolutely gorgeous natural area too, on a lovely lake near some gorgeous forest, and quite near a large provincial park too which should be great. Until then I'm just kinda sleeping too much and doing too little much else but gaming. Just finished playing Fallout - New Vegas that a friend was great enough to lend me and I really enjoyed the hell out of that.

Anyway, what've y'all got planned for the 2015 summer season? Anything exciting?

I personally am quite fond of spiders and I've tried to submit certain photos of them to the :iconspiderlovers: Group, but they've been not accepted so far. I wonder why that is.
