Hmm I would get a 8320, and buy a aftermarket CPU cooler as a future upgrade. Once you got the CPU cooler, overclock it to the stock 8350 speed, or higher. Would recommend a Cooler Master EVO for a budget-friendly cooler.

You could probably save some money on RAM by buying 1866mhz or 1600mhz rather than 2133.(Though I haven't looked at RAM prices recently)

Everything else looks good :).

i could get 2 270x and use crossfire for the price of that r9 290 couldn't i?. unless you think the 290 is that much better. i haven't done much research on crossfire yet.

Crossfire scaling might be disabled in some games. Rule of thumb is to always get the single most powerful graphics card. Crossfire scaling could suck or just plain out not work on alot of games. Besides, performance is similar but the r9 290 has 2gb more vram.

ok ill keep that in mind. i also noticed you put a 8320 in there, but with only 10$ difference isnt the 8350 more worth it?

Also you could end up crossfiring two r9 290's which is 4k material. Keep in mind crossfire is not remotely as reliable as a single card. Maybe to you. A 8320 is just a slightly underclocked 8350.
