Oh and I plan on playing at 1440p in the future. and I need a wireless network card and optical drive and windows 10. Thank you.

PS. For the next gen, next-level build almost 12% faster DDR4 build, u will have to shell out a 60 bucks extra, which u WILL get back in about a week-2weeks time as Mail-in Rebates..

Edit:

See how capable the R9 290 is. gaming at 1440P is a breeze: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1068
