Power Supply: Corsair cx750m

Not with a Corsair CX. You want something that's much higher quality. I'd be inclined to actually shy away from the R9-290X because of the heating and overclocking issues associated with it. Get a single GTX 780TI instead, you won't be disappointed.

Here is what I would do:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($299.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Swiftech H220 55.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($129.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme6 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($178.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($139.80 @ Amazon)
Storage: OCZ Vector 150 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($134.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($84.79 @ Amazon)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card ($699.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Titanium Grey) ATX Mid Tower Case ($129.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($139.99 @ Newegg)

That's fine. Most RAM comes off the same assembly line in Taiwan anyways, the only real differences are the heat sinks included.
