Around £400 Gaming Build

Hello, I'm building a budget gaming pc for the first time. Looking to spend around £400
These are at the top of the list

Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 AMD 970A

CPU : AMD (Piledriver) FX-6300 3.50GHz (Need to know if this is compatible with the motherboard, I know they're both AM3+ but a website's confused me)

GPU : XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7770 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

PSU : Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit

RAM : Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Two Module Kit

OS : Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)

Case : ARIAnet StealthX Black Midi Tower Gaming Case

Thanks in advance for any comments

    Everything is compatible and looks good, but if can spare the extra money I highly recommend the 7850.
