Every part in their is perfect, if you go for a lower CPU it would bottleneck the GPU. Also the FX 6300 is what one recommends as the least for an AMD build now.
RAM, PSU etc. all are in the exact range required.

If you do need to bring the price down i would go with a more budget motherboard. The 990FX series is meant for PC Enthusiast's, the 990X series performs equally well but only has two x8 PCI-E config for crossfire/SLI.

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 Evo - 96$ on Amazon
