Yes, the i5 can run with your MB. CPU support list from MSI: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/B75A-G43-GAMING.html#supp...

Because your i5 was out before the B75 MB launch, and they maybe don't update the list. But from the CPU facts: CPU socket LGA1155, TDP 95W and those march the MB specifications. That it will work.

Your MB has the pcie3.0, so the GPU will work perfectly, also the card is the lower power consumption as long as your PSU ( good brand) has 1X6pin (4x+4X) and 1X8pin (4X+4X) PCI-E Connectors.

Thats really nice to hear sir cin19 im rest assured that my build will work very very well... :D 
since you mentioned PSU, I have one PSU in mind that im going to upgrade along with the motherboard and VGA I mentioned earlier...

Cooler Master Thunder M 620W 620watts Modular
http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/powersupply/...

here in our country it cost around $64 and this is the PSU
that I find that is way cheaper than the other brands and come to think of it, it is a Modular type PSU, it has also 2 PCI-E connectors so my VGA will work just fine... :) 

My question is;

Is this a Good Buy/Type/Brand PSU even its way cheaper than the other brands in the market? :) 
And sir feel free to suggest some brands that is better and that is fitted in my system.. ^_^

thank you again sir cin19...
More Power..

The most of CM PSUs are not the top one, one member from TH site has the webpage for PC Power Supply Recommendations, you can check out the link and the store you buy. And you can get one from the recommend list. You also can find more info from other source too.
