for sure dont go xfx heard lot of sketchy things about there cards and if your looking to save some money and invest it into other components you could got with the 290 instead of the 290x thier performance is very similiar but the 290 is about 100 dollars cheaper and a hyper 212 will cool your processor if your not planning on doing a heavy overclock and save you about 50 dollars looks like a solid build on the intel side good job :)
