and if not is there a cheap motherboard on amazon that would be compatible with the graphics card and the PSU?

Yes all the parts are compatible.
this gpu only needs 225 W to power it so you will be fine.
However I will say that the corsair cx line isn't a reliable psu. I used to use one and it died within 2 months of use.
Try to switch to a 600W psu by seasonic or xfx

it will be more expensive but it is worth it in the long run

BTW why are you using a micro atx board? Is your chassis small?

Ah I see. But yea what you've chosen will work, however I would invest in a better quality PSU (just me personally though, its up to you what you choose).

Ok thank you, also do you have any idea where the network card would go because the only places I see where it would go would be a little close to the graphics card.

Directly under the PCIe port for the GPU (blue) there is a small inch long port (white). The network card would be installed there.

I'm looking at the GPU and it seems like it would fit in the white slot rather than the blue one and if I did put it in the blue one wouldn't the silver thing above the blue slot get in the way?

That silver heat sink should not get in the way as the cooling fans on the gpus will face down if installed correctly. Also the GPU can only go in the slots that have a clip on the end. This will lock it in place. (so the blue one)
