H97 instead of Z97 motherboard, and CPU only supports 1600 MHz RAM, might save a few dollars. Are you sure you need those extra fans, case comes with 1x12 and 1x14, up to you?

It's not an issue, if you get that RAM, it will default to 1600, no harm done and the CPU will just access it as normal at 1600, I only mentioned it as you may find some 1600 cheaper. The H97 Anniversary here though if you get the Newegg mail-in-rebate they are about the same price anyway, depends if you can be bothered with MIR.

Mail in rebate. We don't have them here in the UK, so finding the cheapest item is easier. You pay the full price, then send in the card and they give you some cash back; how long you have to wait, and whether it goes smoothly or if at all I am afraid you will have to ask someone in the USA.

You could change your GPU to an XFX R9 280x, its a tad bit better than the 280 you have, costing around the same price your paying for that 280

Note that while better, the 280X is not only more expensive, but has a TDP 50 watts higher than the 280.

Stick with the 280 (it's a good card, great value for money, what it can't play at ultra settings it will play at high settings) or upgrade the power supply as well as the card.
