Im quite new with custom building PC's and i can choose parts well, but i dont know if they will fit... 
Im wondering if the ASUS AMD R9290X G-4gd5 4gb Gddr5 graphivs card will fit inside a gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H mATX LGA1150

You'll be fine with that motherboard, your greater concern is going to be the case and how much space it has for the video card.

Make sure the power supply you're getting will be capable as well, you will need probably a decent 600w power supply or better to have a little leeway with both 6 pin and 8 pin pcie power plugs.

It will fit the motherboard. It is the size of your case followed by having a grunty enough power supply. Your case size will be the critical one. Most modern cases are big enough.

Unless you're going for absolute peak performance it might pay to check out the just released R9 290 as it is a much better bang for buck...

... Never mind if price is no object though.

Perhaps I missed something but looking at the amazon page, that PSU has no 80 plus rating - meaning that it is likely to be very inefficient in terms of electricity consumption. A slightly more expensive 88% silver rated PSU will easily pay for itself in 12 months through lower power costs.

Even if you are not paying for power today, consider the effect of the extra consumption in the summer. If you are in some small student lodgings, you will notice the extra heat and it will not be nice.
