Better change CPU to FX 8350 and get 990 series mobo. Some options are mentioned below:

Don't buy this PSU. Though it is in Tier 3 still better get Seasonic/Antec/Corsair series PSU.

R9 290x has throttling heat issues. Keep that in mind.

/how about Corsair H100i Cooler

Corsair H100i is for CPU cooling not for graphics card cooling.

the 4670k beats the fx series in everything...i recommend getting the 4670k and an asus sabretooth z87 mobo....btw you have an overkill psu...you also dont need 16 gb ram if you are concentrating on gaming...games will use your gpu memory...8gb is sufficient...you can upgrade later...
