Low budget gaming PC (first ever build)

Hi, I researched all the parts needed for my PC build and created a list with PCPARTPICKER. Most of the build is the same as a video I watched except the motherboard and I'm gonna use a 500GB HDD instead.

Anyway, I just want to check with everyone on here that the build is alright and can handle MOBA (HoTs), FPS and games on Steam. I have already bought the CPU,ram,ps, and case so yeah. My budget at least is $300. Thank you in advance:)

P.s. Can I overclock my CPU with this mobo? If not what budget mobo do you suggest?
