I would not reccomend getting 3 way crossfire with R9 280's those will not stack well especially if you are on a budget. I'd take one of those out and put in an i5 processor either locked or unlocked depending on how much you would like to spend.

Also you do not need 16GB of RAM for gaming so I would reccomend you get a 2x4GB kit or a 1x8GB kit if you are adamant about 16GB and want to upgrade later on.

Maybe you could try this? It will give you alot of performance but at a slightly higher price. You could swap out the 780 for a 770 if you want to save some money and it has room for upgrades if you'd like.
