I am about to build a new PC. I am going to be mainly using it for gaming on ultra-high resolution at 1080. Probably games such as BF4. Will the 280X be good enough, or is it worth upgrading to a GTX 780 (or 290 when it comes out)? Also any comments on the build in general would be much appreciated. Thanks.

280X will handle that res fine. currently GTX780 is hardly worth it since 2 x GTX760 is more powerful and cheaper. Build looks good.
