Yes, I believe this is all compatible. For such a low budget, I would probably skip the GPU, though - the APU has a GPU of close to that same strength IIRC, and you could save your money for a future build or use it to beef up your HDD or PSU.

No, the A4's GPU is nowhere near as powerful as a Radeon 6670 DDR3. That would take something like an A10-5800K paired with decent memory around DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1866.
