i haven't heard of any r9 230x
can you try 780Ti
also if you are not gonna OC you may try removing the coolers and getting some titans/r9 295x2 ;D

also currently i7 is not required(gaming) and has no notable differences in gaming (in comparison to i5)
so you can get way better cards
who know 2 780's

its your choice

in the end your pc build is quite up to mark and you should not worry
about changing anything
if you are talking about r9 290x,780
i would recommend the 780
but just get the cheaper one they are nearly the same

The R9 290x has a performance edge if you are considering one with a good non-reference cooler. I would stay away from the reference cards though.

Overall I think I would get the GTX780 over the R9 290. I also prefer Nvidia to AMD if you are comparing similar cards.

If you are going to invest that much on a graphics card, I would stay with the i7-4770K.
