Im on a very tight budget, pretty much at my spending limit. I already purchased the gpu for $140... hoping that wasnt regretable. Just wondering if this is a good game rig, if i should go with micro atx or if the one i chose is better, and also if this is a good platform for a R9 290 in the future. Thanks

if you have 15$ for the psu, i would recomend a G2 or B2 such as: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1 or : https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-110b20750vr , the rest looks fine, i dont see what you could cut out for the price (except for the case and/or peripherals) ...
