Building a setup for gaming $800. How does this look? Is it all compatable?

As it is, I am at $815 after taxes. Is there any thing I should switch out? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

downgrade GPU to an EVGA gtx 760.

upgrade cpu to an i5 and compatable motherboard with video card savings

Come October if you want a more powerful video card use the EVGA step up program to upgrade to a gtx 770 then or the 8 series.

I've always been a little unclear on what is compatible with what. I've never really looked into motherboards before.

Id rather go with a 280x. 3gb, 512 bus, and cheaper.

TC I highly recommend putting your build into http://pcpartpicker.com/

More people will look and comment. Plus it is easier to see where things are cheaper.

It'll also do compatibility checks for you (though it isn't perfect).

I highly recommend this as well, don't spend three times as much on your gpu as on your CPU, especially not with a motherboard with no upgrade path. Current intel boards will be compatible with broadwell parts. AM3+ is pretty much dead and an 8320/50 isn't going to offer much more than a 6300.

doesn't look like a complete system, but as far as what's posted, the psu is not good, both for the price and in general. the case is just bad for $70. you could certainly make a better value pick for the gpu. R9 280X for $50 less for example. even a gtx760 for $80 less. the motherboard is ok for the cpu you chose. it's not gonna do for one of the 8 core FX, but I wouldn't advise one of those anyway.
