Probably quite bad, my budget is no more than £700 (about $1100) and id like to be able to max out games while making sure its enough fps to be playable.

If anyone can revise this build id really appreciate it, Thanks.

Slightly over-budget but the gaming performance boost is huge. I've made a few changes for cheaper parts and I had to get rid of the SSD. If can afford it, this 120GB SSD is only £43 - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-internal-hard-drive-sv300s37a120g

Also, the motherboard and power supply allows you to add a second 290 later.

Needa better GPU if you plan to max out current games, let alone ones in the future.
