Still holding out for a non-ref r9 290. If not, might just go ref, crank the fan up, then eventually install aftermarket solution.

I've spent 375$ so far, got everything on black friday sales. I do not actually have any optical drive or windows yet.

Got my CPU/Mobo, and psu, waiting for my case, hdd, and ram to show up in the mail so I can piece this bad boy together. Never attempted a build before so I'm exceptionally anxious. Alls I need now is a graphics card. I'm thinking GTX770 sometime around tax time, would that be a good fit?
