I'm building a custom PC, will these parts work together?

I'm building a new computer, and I have all of the parts sorted out. I've went onto PC part picker and listed all of the parts I'll be using (Here is the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/KL76r7) and I need to double check myself to make sure all of the parts work together with one another. Here's the complete list of parts:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory/RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB SSC ACX 2.0 Video Card
PSU: EVGA 500W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply
Case: VIVO CASE-V01 ATX Mid Tower Case
Optical Drive: LG GH24NSC0B DVD/CD Writer
Thanks so much for checking for me!

  1. what's your budget?
    it's a nice build, but any i5 will outperform the FX6300 by ages

    Around 1k, but will I need to change the motherboard?

    yes, an intel CPU will not work with a motherboard meant for an AMD CPU
  4. for 1k you can get so much more! this system will outperform the one you posted in any given way:

    I'll have to think about it, but thanks for the parts list! It's a bit over my budget, just slightly, but I should be able to make it work. Again, thanks a ton!

    as said, take an i5-6400 and cut the additional case fan and you're on 1k straight.
    also you could only get 8GB RAM instead of 16 (It's sufficient, I just had another build saved and overlooked it) and be well within budget
