Its cool dude! biggrin.gif

I would change that power supply. Maybe go with a rosewill hive? And again, i would recommend an R9 290, or an R9 290x if you can afford the extra cash.

The r9 290 is over my budget. A 350$ dollar graphic card would fit perfectly in what my wallet can affrord. If i necessary, I can put 50 extra dollars. But i can't higher then 400$.

Why would you change the power suply? If its needed, I would like to stick with a fully modular power suply be cause I wanted to get red sleeved cables.

A good power supply is the backbone of your system.

Are you going to be going single GPU? If so, pick the Rosewill Capstone 450W.
Dual GPU? Check this

I never said anything was wrong with it. I was just letting you know what to look at when building a computer. Anytime you upgrarade it costs money. An expansionable case. A great powersupply. A good medium such as bluray is something that will stay with you as you upgrade. A decent monitor and keyboard and mouse too. Everyone upgradrades different parts as they need them. A good powersupply will last you a long time. One of the very most important investments. Just sayin.

That is very true. Most people neglect PSU or motherboard, not realizing they are jeopardizing a lot. Bad board has bad VRM, bad VRM = volt killed chip.
Bad PSU = blown rig. Also, poor PSUs can cause BSODs and other weird issues (artifacting on GPU, unstable RAM speeds, even killing HDDs) I don't know how good your PSU is, let me do a little digging just to be sure.

EDIT: Looks good

Wattage for the G2 series is 750/850/1000 and 1300 watts

For reference, when needing info on PSUs, look up "shilka" or "TwoCables"

Thanks for the tips smile.gif . That's pretty much my way of thinking. I think my configuration is pretty much "futur proof". I'm getting the logitech proteus g502 or the Mionix Naos 7000 with a mechanical keyboard. The only thing that scares me is the CPU but if I manage to make a decent OC, I think I'll be fine. So what graphic card should I get?

The games I'm planning to play are: BF4, Titan fall, TESO, Thief, DOTA, LoL, and Rome 2. I can spend a maximum of 400$. My screen resolution will be 1900 x 1080. I want to make a SLI/Crossfire setup in the futur. I would like to be able to make a dual screen also. My motherboard will be the AsRock 990fx killer.

And could you explain me what are the difference between AMD and Nvidea?

The difference? Brand. There will always be one brand with the highest performance, but it will have a higher cost. What you really need to do is see who has the best card for ~$400.
EDIT: Quick look says it comes down to GTX 770 or Radeon R9 280X
EDIT2: I don't like benchmarks, but here is one set
