RAM: Corsair Vengeance ddr3(2x4gb)
HDD: WD green 1tb
PSU: Cosair CX-500 modular 80+ bronze
OPTICAL: Lite-on 24x DVDRW
CASE: CoolerMaster K280

Am I able to use the full 1GB of graphics as the AMD A8 has integrated graphics?

Of course. It is a graphic cards RAM (GDDR3/5) and the integrated GPU in the processor uses system RAM (DDR3).

Thanks man, appreciate the help :)

You can probably tightly fit a FX-6300 CPU in there instead of the A8.
Probably only better if you do some rendering and not just gaming.

Yeah, but there's motherboards AM3+ for the same price.
