my friend has this exact motherboard(please look at it) and we are sitting here wanting to know if an amd fx 6300 and a gtx 760 will work for it... I dont know how the chipset and etc works

That board is severely underpowered to support a 760. Besides, it's a Micro ATX, and is doubtful that a 760 would even fit in the case.

That's a dumb answer. Of course a 760 will fit and will work. I have a 760 in an ITX case just fine.

It might not be ideal (depending on what it's used for), but it'll work.

make sure the case will fit the card and he has a power supply that has the wattage to run the gpu. the mb will run the gpu and the cpu.

A 760 on a $50 Micro board is quite possibly one of the unbalanced builds I've ever seen.
It's like dropping a Jet Engine into a Ford Pinto and expecting everything to go fine.

Do you already have the CPU and GPU? I would definitely get an ATX motherboard instead of downgrading your 760

Why ATX? Form factor has nothing to do with this. All ATX does is let you add more crap and limit your case choices.

Never said that, and neither can I. Not everyone can afford a $250 graphics card either.
My suggestion would simply be to pick up a good quality board, maybe an M5A97 for around $90 and drop to a cheaper GPU. It's almost a liability putting expensive components into a cheap board.

he has the cpu but not the gpu he is upgrading from a 650, he is looking at motherboards but we can only get it from amazon and we cant find a good one for under 110 dollars etc

A nicer motherboard isn't a bad idea. I'm just saying that if you can possibly put in a little more money for a nicer motherboard, you won't regret it. The choice is yours of course! What you have now should work. But the first thing to eventually upgrade would be your motherboard

well we have a 100 dollars to spend on a motherboard.

so far here is what he has

amd fx 6300
rosewill 630 watt psu
8gb ddr3 memory
1 tb harddrive
gtx 650

he wants to get rid of the 650 and get a 760 after that we will have around 100 dollars left for a motherboard

but it has to be from amazon and we cant find one because we dont really know what we are looking for and we cant find one that will ship overnight

Remember that you can always sell your old components to reduce the price. A 650 would most likely go for about $70-80, with the old board at about $30-40. With that in mind, what's your total budget, including the 760's price? I'm not out to get you, I just want to get you the best rig possible for your money.
