looks like a reasonable build. it might max out every game this year and maybe next yeah aswell. and then probably another 2-3ish on high.

Change the RAM from 1x8GB to 2x4GB so you will run in dual-channel mode. This can be 3%-5% faster.

Your build looks good. I would reccomend to use 2x4GB sticks of ram if you don't plan on upgrading to 16GB later on.

EDIT: Onus beat me to it

The i5 and 290 will be fine together.

the 4770 is more future proof, but get the xeon e3-1230v3 instead. it's basically just an 4770 without an igpu. and i highly doublt you will ever use the igpu

In most games Intel does have a slight lead, so I guess you could say it's better. An i5 will have no bottleneck with the 290, it's a very capable CPU.

Either is fine. I would just get the cheapest of the two unless the price is very close.

Go with what logainofhades said. Performance is very close on both CPUs,

Considering you're not overclocking, please Consider a Xeon E3-1231v3 on a H97 chipset. Discount hyperthreading!

That board will only support a single graphics card. You can change it out for different card if you need more performance, in the future. The R9 290 is pretty powerful. By the time you have to replace it, you will probably be ready for a whole new system.

This is the least expensive one, that I could find, that will properly support dual graphics cards, and give you future Broadwell CPU support.
