    You could go for a 280x (basically a 7970 with boosted frequencies ) or go for a r9 290x.
    As for the cpu , in most cpu bound games its inferior to a intel i3. My sincere opinion (as a AMD fan) take a i5 a 4690k if you can afford. Its faster( or equivalent), same money(more or less), lower TDP. There are good Z97 boards at same prices as 990fx.
    And now really , you buy windows?
