Do you think the stock cooler is any good heard different things about it :\ Plan to keep mobo for upgrading in the future reckon i need a bigger PSU? What is the diffrence between the mobos and finally do you think that the 290 is much better then the 770 in comparison?

There isn't a huge difference except one has the word gaming it it and one is blue. No you have quite a bit of headroom with 650 watts. A 290 trades blows with a 780 and almost always bests it at higher res. The stock cooler is fine until you get a new one. It will do great as long as you don't overclock

Looks good to me. Of course if there's room in your budget you can always improve.
