I am building a gaming PC and I am wondering if these are good parts for the price.
I plan on playing games such as Starcraft 2, Rainbow six siege, LoL, WoW, Destiny 2, The Witcher 3 and possibly other AAA games. My monitor will be a 1080p @ 60hz. MY BUDGET IS 1200 CAD

I am also in need for a WiFi card. I will not be able to connect via ethernet cable and I would like a good WiFi card for gaming.
Edit: I am from Canada and will be buying everything from Amazon.ca unless other canadian websites have free shipping.

if you can spare $20~$30 more, i definitely suggest getting a more reliable PSU than a CX450. especially since you are running a gtx1060. theres a higher chance your setup wont be stable enough with the PSU selected. the Seasonic ones you selected can be a better pick as well. either a Corsair RM550x or a EVGA SuperNova 550 can do also. at least, you wont worry about your PSU when upgrading 2~3 years from now with a overclock/slightly more powerful rig.

and you still havent included your RAM & CPU cooler in your build yet. you have some in hand already?

Oh I didn't add one. I will be thinking of getting this one https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00UFF7Y72/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB

I was also planning on just using the stock CPU cooler that comes with the cpu. Will that be okay?
As for the PSU - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01MSEYY23/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1
This build with everything included will cost me $1225 CAD.

I also did another build with a Ryzen 1600 since that was what was recommended for me to do since intel has a current scandal going on?
My Ryzen build is https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/6wy4Fd for $1275

Would the Ryzen build be better for 50 dollars more?
