well...

I can tell you ur CPU, graphics card, RAM, HDD, and PSU will fit on ur mobo...

whether if they'll all fit in ur case is another story and I'm not so sure about that.

u only need 4 core for gaming AFAIK so u can either get faster cores for 4 core or spend a tad more on the graphics card, 7750 isn't the best out there, try for 7770 if at all possible, I think.

RAM is bad too. 1.65v, and (4x2gb) kit. A (2x4gb) would be better.

I would recommend that over the fx cpu line to be honest. It tests awfully close to the i3 intel offerings. Not to bad and only 10 bucks more then the cpu you chose. Plus it uses the new fm2 socket amd is using so you have a few options in cpu upgrades maybe later down the road. But that is my suggestion.

yes matx mobos work in a atx case. the cases have those standoffs spots

you lose about 15% or more in performance by switching to a 7850. lets say that a 7850 is the same as a 560ti 448 core and the 7870 being about as good as a gtx580
