I accidentally selected a non ref MSI r9 290 but I meant the reference card. Is everything compatible; according to pcpartpicker it is but I just wanna be sure. I already have the memory and I'm not buying from the us so pricing is a little bit different. Thanks in advance!

I would change the PSU to be a gold certified one and I would make sure its modular (much MUCH easier to build with. Not necessary, but it will help when building and the gold certified part is just to be a little more efficient.

Also I would consider the Fractal Design Define R4 (best silent case out there) for that case price range along with the CM Storm Scout 2. Then again, you dont need to change the case, I just like like having people look at a few other before buying.

Other than that, you have a good build.

the gtx780 is a beter gpu than the 290, runs cooler, draw less power and verclock better, make sure you get the 780 at those prices its better..
