I started this build with two objectives... AMD/ASUS hardware and get 50 fps minimum in Hitman absolution. Both objectives are met. From the list below what could I replace that would add to the system without passing the point of diminishing return. Maube a 2560 monitor?

Well, your system seems to be pretty top notch... the parts themselves are good, maybe you want to try OC'ing for higher fps?

I'm not an OC'r or even a tweeker. I went from 8350 to 9590 cause I'm too lazy to do it myself, lol. I have a reference R9 290 in the closet so I guess if I want to push it I could put it in the PCIe x8 slot and the board would be FULL.

2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600? I game on the HP LP3065 (30") which is about 6 years old but it does 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz. If you are gaming at 1080p, 2560 x 1600 is pretty much twice as crisp, clear and detailed than 1080p. Or you could do as Chino suggests, I never gamed on a surround monitor set up but It looks pretty awesome from some of the posts I've seen. Your 290x's would eat three 1080p monitors alive.

Some newer monitors do 2560 x 1440 at 120 hz. Three of those would be a jaw dropper.
