I'd like to build an R9 280X system and i'd like you to review what i've come up with.

I've had an I Mac for about 4 years now and i thought it was time for a massive change of pace.
I'd like to build a 280x overclockable gaming system in a case like the Bitfenix Colossus M If it's out or when it's out.
Here's some parts that i've picked out.
Case: BItfenix Colossus M
MotherBoard: MSI Z87M-G43 Motherboard
Cpu: i5 4670k
Cpu cooling: Hyper 212 EVO
Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Toxic Edition 3GB
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-2400C10D-8GZH 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Storage: Seagate barracuda 1 tb
PSU: Corsair TX-650M Modular Power Supply
Adittional Cooling: bitfenix spectre 230 mm on the bottom
That's about all.
I should ask, Is that motherboard good for overclocking?
I hope this system will work.

very good indeed
where do you live ? how much is your budget?
maybe we can optimize it a bit

Hmm, lets see here. This system should come in at a comfortable $1550 AUD with a monitor (Going off the idea that the Bitfenix colossus m will be around $130 dollars.)
the highest price i'll go is $1600
Now, about this optimization?
Can't find your answer ? Ask !
