Power Supply: Corsair cx750m

Not with a Corsair CX. You want something that's much higher quality. I'd be inclined to actually shy away from the R9-290X because of the heating and overclocking issues associated with it. Get a single GTX 780TI instead, you won't be disappointed.

Here is what I would do:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

That's fine. Most RAM comes off the same assembly line in Taiwan anyways, the only real differences are the heat sinks included.
