Will this build work if I were to put in a r9 290x or a gtx 780?

If I need to change anything I can go up to a max of $600

-780 will work(but i STRONGLY recommend the tx750 of corsair)

-about amd, wait until benchmarks(although i don't think that it will be extremely power hungry)

780 is an upper high end graphics card that requires a certain amount of voltage and electric current. The cx series aren't reccomended for such high end components.
cx < tx < hx < ax (only for corsair psu's)

The recommened wattage for my build was about 450w, a 750w psu won't do the trick?

Wattage is not the only requirement.

power = voltage * electric current

Your cx has a 12V/60A rail, so it will be compatible with (almost) every vga of market. My point is that you should not save up money from your psu
