I noticed you didn't have a power supply in your build, so I assumed you've already got one on you. Here's my suggestion for your budget, managed to get you up from a 770 to a 290x:

600W is cutting it very close if you plan to overclock. In fact I wouldn't recommend overclocking this build with that power supply. Maybe CPU only or GPU only, but certainly not both.

well, if you're not overclocking drop down to a 4690 or 4670 and h97/h87 motherboard so save money. While you're at it we could ditch the 212 evo cooler.
