Default Looking to put together a PC for gaming and Multimedia Graphic Deisgn

So, I'm just hoping to get some insight on what I should/shouldn't get. I don't know a whole lot the hardware side of computers. I'm in Canada as well if that applies to anything.

NewEgg.ca Wishlist

I'm looking spend around 1300-1500, CDN. So sites like newegg.ca, ncix.ca, tigerdirect.ca if it's not too much trouble.

you made your link as "newegg.ca wishlist", but the wishlist you made is from U.S. newegg, not canadian.

anyway, i'm not sure how much those parts would actually cost in CAD, but for a price that's still within your range, you could step it up to a more powerful i7 build.

You mention Multi-media and graphic design...what programs are you going to be running?

Reason I ask is due to the graphics card pretty much~

Probably won't matter since he needs it for gaming as well, a graphic design card will help ten folds but i don't think they game well.
