Part out old HP and replace CPU + MB

Hey fellas...
So I have a old HP p6774y with Phenom X4 840T UATX that I'm looking
to strip out and replace it with these components...

>GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128565
$59.99
>OS: Windows 8 64bit full
$110
>AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113286
$132

I have Antec 620Watt HCG-620M.
GTX 650 TI Boost SC 2GB.
Recycle my 6 GB DDR3 , HD (reformat), fans and case.

I selected that MB because it's the same dimensions as the HP UATX.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c02629593#N308

Will that Antec be sufficient. Any other suggestions to do this on a budget around $350.
Or if it's possible with that case. I figure hold on to it a few years upgrade the CPU.
And in the future rebuild. Just want BF4 and ARMA 3 to run smooth on high to ultra settings.

Any help appreciated...

    The PSU will be sufficient for that setup, try this for a better setup :

  2. Hey Angaddev,

    So switching it out with these parts should be fine eventhough the dimensions are smaller?
    ASRock 9.6" x 7.8" Vs old HP 9.6" X9.6" and the power pin that I have is 20+4 so I can just use the 24 pin slot on the ASRock with the Antec. 20+4 means that just split off but can still be used on the 24 pin? It's taking some time to learn the tech terms and how they are applied otherwise $324 is a great price.

    I just noticed that the ASRock has 2 x 240-pin DIMM but I only have 3 x2GB memory cards. Another suggestion maybe...

    You can use a 20+4 with the 24 pin. You can use two of the three dimms you have. As for the motherboard,

    Thats great! Thank you for the suggestion on the CPU and MB that partpicker is handy, was checking it out earlier today, it simplify s everything...going with your suggestions too! I mean theres so many threads on CPU and MB it's nice to get actual response.

    Take care...
