Need improvements on a build

This is my 1000 dollar budget build, but if there are cheaper options for some of my parts I'd gladly swap them out and pick up some new hard drives and monitors. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/sirlazuras/saved/Hbt9TW

I already have the RAM, the HDDs, an operating system, I dont plan on overclocking, and my room has its own AC unit so my computer can stay cool. I think I did pretty well but I dont know if there are places that I can save money in since I'm new to some of this. Thanks in advance!

edit: I should also add that this is a heavy gaming/software development build, and will eventually be a three monitor setup.

I advise you get a much better PSU. Raidmax PSUs are listed under Tier 5 (See here) and are not recommended for any situation.

Get this Tier 1 PSU instead: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr

Wow I didn't even know about this, thank you! I'll definitely refer to it for any of my other builds.

I'd rather get a single powerful card than crossfire two cards because of possible heat and latency issues. I've also read that in that performance bracket the 290 is the best for the price. I'll look into other cards now though. I am going to switch out the PSU though for something more reliable
