  1. Yes, but you can do better on the motherboard and cpu.
    I recommend these two instead:

    heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200042

    These items will still put you within your budget; newegg takes paypal and personal checks (with special arrangement). For more advice, I would pick one vender and link it.
  2. I changed the mobo to the one u suggested, the ASUS M5A79 - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A97/

    The CPU seemed a bit better than the one i chose, but for some reason in my country its like 30$ more expensive, so i'm gonna stick with the one i chose for now.

    RAM i changed to G.skill F3-12800CL9D/ DDR3 1600 Mhz 2 x 2GB - http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=88 (costs 20$ less than the previous one)

    I also changed GPU to SAPPHIRE HD 6670 - http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1088&pid=1282&psn=&lid=1&leg=0 ( GDDR5 memory instead of DDR3 for 5$ higher price)

    Would these parts be compatible with eachother as well?
    Also I appreciate any suggestions.
  3. Yo should be ok with your parts change. Can't advise any more without a vender link, but you sound like you've shopped around already.
