what size is your case? m-ATX, ATX, E-ATX XL-ATX?
this will let us pick a mother board for you.

What wattage is your PSU so we dont pick a GPU that will be to power hungry for it?

Newegg has a combo right now with that CPU and an equivalent motherboard for free. Use the savings to get an R7 260X 2GB.
