  1. couble things go with a hyper 212 evo or cheapre air cooler to save money and aviod that psu only buy from reliable brands like antec, corsair, seasonic, xfx, eneramax,

    Motherboard/CPU: Good choice here, the i5 offers great value for gaming, just make sure to get a CPU cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO if you plan on overclocking.

    RAM: Either, just get the cheaper kit.

    GPU: At this budget, you need to devote more to the GPU. The R9-280X is a great choice for 1080P gaming, along with the GTX 770. I am not sure about prices there, but I would try to make that upgrade.

    PSU: I would avoid this brand, get something in the 550-700 watt range from XFX/SeaSonic/Corsair/Antec.

    Everything else looks good, I am not a fan of RAIDMAX anything, but cases are a matter of personal preference.
