Default building a comp

Hi, I have finally scrounged up enough cash for a computer. I would only be using this computer for high-end gaming and I know getting a prebuilt computer is like throwing my money away. I have about 900 dollars to spend on the computer not including a OS, monitor, speakers, mouse, and keyboard. I have never done this before so I don't know what components are compatible with each other.

I live in Canada so I don't want to buy parts from a site like newegg, because I don't want to pay border fees everytime I get something sent across the border.
If someone could give me a list of components using a Canadian site like or I would really appreciate it.
