Suggestions for $1300 Gaming PC

First time on this forum so please go easy on me. :D
The title mainly explains it all but there are 2 things I was hoping to fit into this build which was a R9 290x and maybe a Bitfenix Prodigy/Fractal Design R4 (which ever one can fit more stuff into it.).
And Just to clear this up, I just need all the money dedicated to the build only so don't include the OS, keyboard, mouse, etc. Also, I will not be considering crossfire/sli in the future. Thanks Guys! (If possible, can you also include the Asus Maximus VI Impact in this build assuming it will fit into either case?)

  6. Your're right.
    If you're going to crossfire eventually with 2 cards then get a 1000Watt PSU
