I am not exactly an AMD builder so I can't say. If you do want to go intel and NVidia, I have a build for about $100 more that I think you should check out:

I don't recommend the PSUs of either of the builds above...a corsair cx500W psu in one and a cx430 in the other...they're both designed for office systems, they don't guarantee maintaining wattage at 50°C internal temperature.

I'm on a really strict budget and can't go that high

The CX series is solid, just not as well built as some. For budget systems they are great because of the wattage they deliver, and their general price.

Much better Cpu than your build(8 dollars more than a 6300, I'd get the 6350 for that price difference), solid motherboard and good price on Ram with good speed and timings. Solid case with good air flow and cable routing options. I love the price on the video card, and it's a hell of a bargain at that price. Even included a cpu cooler and stayed under 600 after any and all MiR's.
