Here is my build: Permalink: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

So I am looking to build a 1100$ gaming computer, this is the first time I have ever built a computer. I am not looking to include any monitors or peripherals etc. Just what I have listed. My question is, are there any parts that can be swapped out for something better? ANYTHING. I want this build to be the absolute BEST gaming PC you can have for 1100$, I am looking to do hardcore gaming at max settings with this thing. Although I am not streaming or running more than one monitor, I will also no be doing any video editing etc, this is STRICTLY for gaming. Give me your feedback and suggestions, and when you do, give me a reason as to why I should switch it out! Thanks so much guys you don't know how helpful this is!!

you dont need to spend that much on a mobo . Get a cheaper one and get yourself a r9 290x

That's not your build, that just links to the current parts list of whoever looks at it. Copy the little part that says permalink.

I see you posted the link in the post, so it's fine, don't worry about it. You're build looks good, but see if you can get a Gigabyte or MSI card. I own a PNY card, and it's a little loud for my taste.
