First build and before I start getting parts wanted to see how more experienced builders think my PC will run http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/sZcRHx
I'd recommend replacing the 280X with the R9 290.
Secondly I think you should try to upgrade to the Z97 mobo. Note that the Z87 mobo will need a bios upgrade to be compatible with the i5-4690k CPU. If you don't plan on overclocking you don't need that type of CPU cooler, you can get a little cheaper one like the 212 EVO for $30 or just use the stock cooler.
thanks for the info, I had no clue this board doesn't support overclocking.
