Yes it will. But I would rather do this build, for the same price :

You are good.
A M-ATX motherboard is a subset of a full ATX.
Your case can handle either.

Gaming is mostly determined by the graphics card, not the cpu.
Few games can use more than 2 cores so, for the most part, a 6 FX-6300 core cpu with slower cores will not fare as well in most games.
Here is one analysis:

The case that you chose is good too. You can get it if you want.
Those two cards perform about the same. Yours to see if one extra fan is worth $50 more.

Would a 500watt psu be enough?

Yes. One from either Antec, Corsair, Seasonic or XFX.
