Help with Building a New Custom PC - On a Budget

Hi everyone. I'm fairly new to this forum and would really appreciate if you could offer any suggestions for a custom build pc. My budget is around $650 for just the cpu components. I am not factoring in dvd drives, os, speakers, monitor etc. Just the computer. I am planning on using this for 3d design and animation work, video editing, music production, and gaming. Ram would be between 8gb or 16gb, not sure yet. I'm currently looking at amazon, newegg, and tigerdirect to maybe purchase from. I dont have a Microcenter store nearby so I cant buy from them. I'm also particularly not too sure about what I should consider for the motherboard.

This is the setup that I am considering:
CPU: $130 FX6300 6-Core Processor

Mobo: $130 ASUS DDR3 2133 FM2 Motherboard M5A99X EVO R2.0

Graphics Card: $180 HIS RADEON HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP

RAM: $$$? 8gb kit or 16GB Kit (2x8GB)

HDD: $99 Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001

Case: $35 NZXT 210 Case

PSU: $65 Seasonic S12II 520 BRONZE Power Supply

Thank you for any suggestions or advice.
