I am closing in on buying a computer. I have chosen these components:

XFX Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB BK OEM Basic KIT,
Seagate Barracuda® 2TB
Fractal Design Define XL R2 Black Pearl
Logitech Desktop MK120
BenQ 24" LED GW2450HM
Noctua NH-D14
ASUS Z87-PRO,
Intel Core i7-4770K
Kingston DDR3 HyperX blu 1600MHz 16GB
Samsung DVD Writer
Corsair AX 760 PSU ATX

The budget is max 3600 dollars

Anybody have comments on my selection? Should I pick anything else? I have no experience on OC

Thanks

Well, if you want to save some money, you could get the FX-8350 instead of a 4770k, it's cheaper and sometimes faster, and a great multitasker.

For the R9290, wait for non-reference coolers as that card will throttle and be very loud! However it's still a great card, get a R9 290 Windforce when it comes out instead as the R9 290 is almost the same as R9 290x

I was told that the XFX 290x was built with a nonreference cooler?

Is it the double dissipation ?

No it is not.

What about this one?

Sapphire Radeon TRI-X R9 290X 4GB GDDR5

That ones good, and its a non reference design

How about a gtx 780 ti (non reference) ?, if it is cheaper though
