This build is a little over your budget at $743.81 after mail in rebates it comes in at $703.81.

It is an Intel build with the I5 4440 which is a good gaming CPU. Thus CPU will easily run the R9 290 video card. It also has an H97 motherboard which will allow you to upgrade to any I5 or I7 CPU.

The compatibility page for the case says the R9 290 will fit. https://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/?compatible_with=rosewill-case-redboneu3#c=152&sort=a8

Edit-The motherboard does not support more than one video card. If you want to crossfire in the future that wont be possible with this build.
