I know it's a bit more than you were expecting to spend, but at least you have a much better CPU (the one you selected wouldn't just keep up with the most recent games), better Mobo, RAM and 4x the storage.

It's just pcpartpicker being retarded. The M5A97's BIOS is already updated to accept the FX-6300.
