You have a very good CPU. But your GPU is very good for now but maybe not so good in the future. If you have the money you should go with the gtx 780 or maybe even the gtx 780 ti.

Your GPU is going to be fine for the next few years, and even then you can just add another one if you start getting laggy. There's no huge need to get a 780 if you don't have the money.

Well the 770 only gets 60 fps on bf4 now so in 2 years it will probably be even worse

Better motherboard= better overclocking
Better Psu capable of Gtx 780 sli http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/08/06/nvidia_geforc...
Gtx 770 4gb is useless, go straight to gtx 780. If you can wait for non reference r9-290 much better.
