For that big of a budget do not go with an fx 6300 cpu, go with an i5 4690k. Also don't get an i7, no games currently use hyper threading. The above motherboard/psu also doesn't support sli/crossfire, so if you easily want to get extra performance later on you can't just add a second GPU. This build will be much better for a lower price.
