looking for a new motherboard, harddrive + processor that is compatible with my current ram and video card

I am looking for a good motherboard and processor for my new gaming computer I am building. I already have a graphics card and ram which I will link. I have a good budget so recommend anything that is worth the money. Thanks.

    If you have the money, go Intel, i didn't so i'm running an AMD FX-6300, but with those components you could put them with anything and it would run well. I'd say the best performance/price combo would be an Ivy-Bridge processor, they'll be a little cheaper since Haswell is out, but Haswell didn't bring huge gains for desktops.

    If i had the dough i'd do something like this CPU:

    With this Mobo:

    With my budget the FX-6300 and an ASUS M5A99x evo came out to a little more than just that i5, but still runs great.
