I checked those pieces and I think i might go with them, but what if I overclocked the Phenom to about 3.8 hopefully and changed the motherboard to a GIGABYTE GA-870A-USB3? Would it be worth it?

My budget is around $600, I don't think it matches with the parts i posted earlier. There is no part I have to have, but i would prefer being able to use a graphics card instead of integrated graphics.
