Yes the motherboard supports the processor and the ram and has the sata ports for the hdd and the DVDRW and all the components coupled do not exceed he 500W supplied by the PSU even at ful load still leavin you enough room to upgrade to a decent VGA card also :)  .
I like to keep things simple and to the point my dear friend

It's compatible, but you're missing a graphic card. The Athlon x2 does not have a built in iGPU so it won't boot unless you buy a discrete gpu.
Also, a lot of your components are questionable:
-The Athlon x2 is only a duo core. You can get a better quad core for a bit more.
-You can get a 8gb kit of ram at around the same price.
-You can get a faster HDD at a cheaper price.

What is your total budget?
Are you limited to Newegg, or can you use other retailers?
What is the purpose of this machine?

well my budget is around 400 dollars, the purpose is to have a nicer computer than what i have and definitley do some gaming on the side, i was already looking for a cheap graphics card that can run on directx 11 and todays games. if you think you could help me find some better parts (faster hard drive, quad core processor, 8gig memory) I would greatly apreciate it. P.S. I already have an old nvidia geforce 8800 GTX 768MB DDR3 video card just in case i cant find one that will fit my budget and ill use it for back up. oh yah also im definitly not limited to new egg ill even buy from the buy it now section of ebay if its a good deal. thanks

-Everything is from newegg. Newegg's price is either the cheapest or only $1-5 more expensive, but it'll be more convenient ordering from just one retailer.
-Quad core processor.
-8gb of ram.
-Added a gpu. The 7770 is a very good entry-level gpu for light gaming.
-You didn't list a case, but I added a mATX case in.

Yes it is. The PSU should be able to handle any future upgrades and the motherboard is socket FM2+ so it should support the next gen processor.
