How about this?
I see your point about the radeon. The reason I dont trust AMD is I used to have a older R9 a few years ago and it died basically the day my warranty stopped covering it, so I just never bought another one. And i hear that the RX runs kinda hot under heavy loads, but I think I might just give it a try. (although, if I can find somone who is replacing their 970 and will sell it to me for cheaper, I will go for that) BTW the price for your ram does not show up

That looks great! you might want to get a CPU cooler (evo 212 is good for the price) I hear that the stock cooler for the I5 is usually inadequate at heavy loads.

GTX 1070 is almost twice the price right now, and I dont trust the RX 480.

And I will be ordering all of my parts from NCIX.ca.

THis looks good, but that processor might be overkill, unless you plan on things besides just gaming (strreaming, video editing, audio editing, etc) And that GPU should be able to run a 1440P monitor just fine. just somthing to think about.

Thank you for the clarification, I did not relise he was talking about the SSD so I thought he was saying the R9 was not as good as the cheaper GTX 970's, So i was alit confused.

Thank you. I realy like loud typing noise, and my friend said that the blue was the loudest, so I got that one. I will look at the black and blue keyborads.

I wont be buying for atleast a few months, So i am hoping that the GTX 1070/1080 has atleast 2/3 thirds the advertised power and the same price tag as advertised. But in the meantime ive swapped the r9 for a GTX 970 windforce X3
