Up the PSU to a 650W unit. You would be able to do the same for a little lower if you went with an AMD Ryzen build. Also, no SSD for the build, nor storage? What's your budget's limit?
Im planning on using the storage from my old computer for this one so that's already covered. As far as budget goes i don't wanna go much above the $2300 CAD in the build but i am willing to go over by a bit if it means increased performance.

Increased performance will be if you use M.2 NVME SSD which is the ultimate type of storage nowadays, or at the very least a normal SSD.
As for the PSU, i would go higher than 650W from what Lutfij suggested and get a 750W Corsair/Seasonic/EVGA PSU which will help in overall stability and potential overclocks or upgrades you might do or try to do.
As for your build, it is a high end build which will last for several years at least

The SSD doesn't need to be top of the line in order to be good. ANY SSD will be much better than HDD was what i was trying to say, so you are good on that front.
If you upgrade the PSU, then i think you have pretty much dealt with all for the moment.

Sorry to re-reply to the same comment but is there any PSU you would suggest or would any 750W do?

In this forum there is a thread with comparison table of the PSU's, or you can look at the Power Supply discussion thread to find out what might suit you better. But i think most of the Corsair/Seasonic/EVGA PSU's 80+ Gold/Platinum/Titanium are tier 1 or at the very least tier 2 PSU's and that will keep you safe for years to come with a very long term warranty. If you are on a budget, you might want to take a look at the comparison list to find a Bronze 80+ which can also be found as a tier 2 PSU and is cheaper
