You're using a AM3+ processor with a LGA 1155 motherboard. They are not compatible.
Your psu is very low quality and probably only dishes out 300w with lots of ripple.

What is your budget?
Where are you buying from?

-Using two stores: Newegg and NCIX. Also uses Tigerdirect but it's just for the optical drive.
-Everything has free shipping.
-The processor fits the motherboard.
-Much better quality psu and big enough for future upgrades.
-You didn't list a gpu, but the 7850 is a fairly decent mid-range gpu.
