I am going to purchase this setup next week but just to be sure is this a good build for the price.

get an intel i5 3470 CPU and an H77 motherboard instead. Since your build is under 1000, you might be able to squeeze in a Radeon HD 7950

I would get the 6300 because it uses the Piledriver architecture over the 6200 Bulldozer architecture. It's only like $5 more.

at this point buying anything more than a quad core is a waste of money, there's only a few games that take advantage of that and even than its only by a few frames. as for intel vs amd, intel will stomp amd in every bench mark but it also cost more. and you want more of your money into a graphics card these days as long as you have a decent quad core cpu.
