1000-1400$ gaming build

I am going to be building a gaming PC this December and i am not sure if my current build is well balanced or not.

This is the first build that i put together.

I have no idea what PSU i am going to need for it, it would be helpful one could be suggested for this build.
No optical drive, monitor, keyboard or mouse is needed since i already have these.
I am willing to use any parts from reputable manufacturers.
Newegg and amazon are my prefferred retailers.
My current monitor has a resolution of 1440x900.
Next year i will upgrade my monitor to 1900x1200.

    will be more than enought. the 290x arent worth it at the moment and are having big heat issues, u actually need to buy an aftermarket cooler to keep it cool down, so id stay away from them until they fix that issue. 280x is quite good.
  2. Might look at the SeaSonic

    Need at least a 600 w/ 33 AMPs on the 12 volt rail(s) (the Seasonic is a 620, I always like a little extra ;)

    Better cooler, but might be overkill. I'd at least upgrade to the Hyper 212 Evo if nothing better. I like this motherboard at this price. The above 2133mhz Ram is fast, except for the CAS 11 latency. I'd rather get 1866mhz with a CAS 9. Better SSD, and cheaper standard 1tb HDD. I like the speed of this 280x more, for only a little bit extra cost. The PSU is debatable, you get gold efficiency from the same manufacturer, but 100w less. Either one is great though.
