-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

NZXT Tempest 210

Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus
