I don't really know anything about Intel processors. I'm going to pair it with a 290x if that helps. I'm worried that the processor won't be powerful enough.

The great thing about gaming (unlike video rendering) is that it isn't a very cpu-heavy task. The cpu you picked out has 4 cores at 3.5 ghz which is very good for gaming. And since you are getting a dedicated graphics card (and a good one at that), you won't need to worry about the intel graphics that is in the cpu itself. So, yes that CPU is VERY good for gaming.
