This will do fairly well I think, and even has some room left in the budget if you want to get a gaming mouse, a better case or a game.
If you want the reasoning behind any of the part choices, dont hesitate to ask.

Is the amd 6300 better than the 6100. Also would it be better to spend a little more for an intel?

And that graphics card looks b.a.

Yes, it would be better to spend more for intel, but not necessarily. You did say you liked AMD more and going the intel route would put you over your budget if only the cpu/mobo were changed (no reason to change anything else anyways). Then again, you wouldn't be too far over your budget.

And yea, the 6300 is better than the 6100. You could also try another route by going with the AMD FX-8350 instead and not change anything else. That would put you right under your budget I believe. Then just overclock the cpu to get similar performance to the intel core i5-3570k.

I don't know how to overclock or anything like that but how much of a disadvantage is it to have lets say the 8350 over and i5 or i7

Also I noticed you put an ssd in there would I still be able to put in my 2tb hard drive combined with that. Sorry for the newbie questions

And I forgot to mention I use 2 moniters with dvi's it looks like there is only 1 dvi slot and hdmi.
