Like it was said earlier, it is all compatible, however, your build could be improved upon. Instead of a 990fx motherboard and fx 6300 Cpu, I'd go with an Intel 3350p Cpu and H77 motherboard. With those exact parts you are looking at 255 dollars, just by changing out the two for what I'd recommend you could actually save 3 dollars and get much better performance in games:

Don't listen to the guy who says to get intel, Haters gonna hate but AMD is easily overclockable and according to cpubenchmark.net, the fx-6300 is better

I've been running AMD Cpu's for 13 years now, I'm not a hater. However, if gaming is your primary concern, then you should stick with an Intel Cpu if the price is comparable. The fx 6300 is better in some ways, but it is not as good for gaming. The benchmarks are out there, you can't really refute that. Granted, you could overclock the the fx6300 and probably be near the 3350p, but I'd rather save the 30 dollars that you'd end up spending on the heatsink/fan combo, and buy something like the deal newegg had a few days ago. 3570k Cpu and z77 Asus motherboard for 300 dollars. Then you could buy a heatsink/fan down the road and overclock.

If you go to the MSI web page for that motherboard, and then to Cpu support list, the fx 6300 actually isn't on the list. Which is kinda odd for a 990fx chipset motherboard, but meh. I'd look for an Asus or Asrock motherboard myself. I've used MSI boards in the past though, and never had an issue, I just felt that the Asus boards I've used were better in comparison.

While I have not used the FX-6300 CPU I do have a FX-8120 and FX-8350 based rig as well as a i5 3570K and can say with out any objection that both of my FX rigs can handle any of my 300+ games every bit as good as my i5 rig. I built the i5 rig only because of all of the post about how much better the i5 3570K was than the FX only to find out after spending $1500 on a completely new build that I gained NOTHING as far as gaming goes.

Now do not get me wrong I like my new build but the fact is that as for performance goes there is not much if any difference between the three.

I am actually having trouble now deciding between a i5 3570k cpu or fx 8350 which should I get?

On youtube there is a comparison, fx 8350 does beat intel at some but not all games

Also although i am a amd fanboy, i would pick the fx 8350 because the ps4 and possibly the new xbox with be an 8 core APU
