You build will probably work (start up) but im not really sure.Either way you do not want to build that thing.

Im going to make you two builds.The first one is going to be very cheap and still a big improvement over your build and the second one is going to be the best i can build for you in the 450-500$ range.

So here's the first one.And don't worry the motherboard and the CPU should be compatable without a BIOS update.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($119.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: MSI H61M-P31 (G3) Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($104.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($24.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $354.94

And the second PC i built is a bit over your budget but it's worth every penny,
