AMD Athlon X4 750K Processor

NZXT Source 210 Case (white)

4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM (maybe 8)

1TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drive or 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue Hard Drive:

XFX Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition Graphics Card

You can't use the Z87 because it is for intel CPU, you have to buy the AMD MB that spport the CPU you list.

And if you buy the 600W PSU you can use it for CF the HD7770. If you want to you can buy the 500W (CX 500) one for lower budget.

like cin19 said, you must have an FM2 board to run that CPU, the MSI you're looking at would be just fine.
