Well, you need some ram. I would recommend 8GB. Also, You may want to grab a 990fx motherboard, as it is much better for OC'ing, something that you would be foolish not to do when buying an AMD fx series processor.

Yes. The 760 is very similar in performance to the 7950 from amd, and it is a little faster than the 660ti. Amazing bang for buck too, as it is only $250.

Looks pretty good. I'd go with a FX-6350 or FX-4350 over the FX-6300 because of the faster clock speed. It will make a big difference if you ever upgrade you graphics card or go X-fire.

I would normally recommend this too, but the price to performance would be awful, especially since you could just put a slight overclock on the 6300 and have it perform exactly the same as the 6300, for free.
