I am in the market for a new PC, this will be used for streaming,

At the moment playing Resident Evil Village, Biomutant, Outriders, Apex Legends, World of Warcraft all while having -Stream Raiders- up on the browser.

Dual monitors at 1080p, would like something future proof, like 32gb of ram, preferably a 3080, no AMD GPU, 2TB or More.

Current budget would be 3500$ CA
I don't know if DS ships to CA, but if they do, that's what I am working with, if any one has any builds related to my needs.

About the best you can do with a 3080 on board is this:

     3923680   $3273 US.

You can save $122 US on a Lynx case. I don't see the need for a 3080 at 1080p. You can get a better CPU and much better storage with an RTX 3070 which should be plenty, no? Check into it. DS ships to Canada.

Future proofing, I guess.

Get the appropriate GPU for now, get a better overall rig at your budget. When the market corrects itself you can have the next gen card of your dreams without overpaying by $800. That's a ridiculous premium to pay for "future proofing". There's no such thing, really, when the future always brings so much better technology.
