    -If you are not overclocking, you don't need Z87 chipset motherboard. You will be fine with H87 or B85 chipset motherboard.
    -650w PSU is enough for R9 290x, but i am not familiar with that brand of PSU, you might go with: Corsair, XFX, SeaSonic or Antec
    -The CM Silencio 550 has only two fans, one at front, and one at the back. I think it will be enough, but there are better cases for that amount of money and offer 3 fans, one at the front(intake), one at the top(exhaust) and one at the back (exhaust)
    Cases with better airflow, within the budget of Silencio 550
