Before I want to buy the parts, I want to know if each part is compatible with one another,
if not, I'll look for a new one.

Specs are:
A10-6800K @4.1GHz
MSI Z87-G41
SAPPHIRE R7-240 2GB DDR3
KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K2/8GB

If you find some of the parts being old, it's because I have a budget of $450.
Hopefully I can get an answer soon, thank you!

you dont need an APU if ou already have a GPU. its pointless to buy a processor with built in graphics, only to ditch the built in graphics to use the r7 240. Now all your left with is a weak processor, and a weak GPU. the 6800K overclocked might be better than the r7 240. period.

do you already have a motherboard, and thats why you chose that ??

APU is pointless if u already have a GPU............Your build is very weak unless you have a mid to high motherboard.

Just to add to the previous comments, the motherboard is for intel LGA1150 processors so the A10 wouldn't even fit in.

Can you guys suggest a $500 build that'll be worth the money? Just use the conversion rate from USD to Philippine Pesos. Hopefully I can build my PC by next year, this is my first time building a PC.
By the way, PC Worx here in the Philippines is limited. So, maybe use this website as reference.
