Looks great. Wouldn't change a thing.

The only thing I would say is that there are about to be some new video cards coming out... that'll bug up the pricing system on the existing ones a little.

When? Should I wait?

They SHOULD be announced at CES which starts the 6th... idk the release date yet. It should be around Feb. If you waned to wait for the vid card, grab everything besides the card.

Agree with Kanevil here. GTX960 rumoured to be hitting the shelves aprox Jan 20/22nd, which may drop or change pricing structure.

Additionally, if you're still set on an ATI card, I would get rid of the PowerColour and get an Asus Direct CUII or comparable card for better cooling. (280x outperforms the 285 if you can spare the $$$). PNY/PowerColour are budget cards, and where they typically skimp from is the cooling. That'll reduce the longevity of your card and over time, the performance.

Happy Gaming!

Thanks for the info. I actually forgot I chose that card in the setup I posted, I've made many revisions and didn't mean to add that one. I'm planning to wait for the 960 it sounds like a great option!

what should I get instead?

I find the missing CPU Cooler a bit disturbing. GPU is kind of okay but imo there might be better deals. R9 285 is kind of an awkward position right now.
