Hello, I'm looking for a GPU that is under 400 bucks. I was looking at the Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB for $419...Just wondering if there are better cards for the same price or lower. I'm trying to save as much money as I can as this is my first build. Or....A higher priced card, but cut down on other parts. Here's my full list: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

Feel free to leave suggestions on where I can save money. I do plan on buying a monitor, keyboard and mouse. But nothing fancy. A 21 inch monitor, and standard keyboard and mouse.Thanks guys.

That's the wrong link. You need to hit the BBCode Markup button, and paste the results here. Or the permalink at the top left, but the BBCode is nicer.

Note that s/he's in AU. Those won't work.

But yeah, waiting for custom cooler versions of the R9 290 is a good plan.

I chose a more expensive motherboard partly because of the soundchip and a bit for the looks which should be really nice in that case with window i chose.
So another case which according to the site has two front red led fans which should look nice if you like that.
I chose the r9 280X because in review it is as good as the gtx 770 and is still cheaper.
i chose the i5 4570 because i don't think tou will notice the 200mhz less and it's cheaper.It in return gives extra cash for the cpu cooler.
