idk which one will work for you guys, but i think i did a pretty good job while trying to stay under 600 USD.

the only thing im worried about is the RAM idk why though.
if you have any suggestions please feel free to comment.

Why not go for am3+ MOBOs which are a lot more standard and common w/ amd PCs?
Fx 6300 costs around the same/lower as that CPU.
As for the CPU cooler, if you're gon' spend $20+ ,might as well get the Hyper EVO @ $30.
High reputation and really the best bang for the buck..

Your RAM is fine. 8GB Corsair vengeance is pretty popular among PC builds.
BUT why 1866? get the 1600 ones. 1866 is not worth it .Memory speeds (mhz) in RAMs don't really have much differences in performance/speed .

i didnt choose the Fx 6300 because its not compatiable with the motherboard. if you have a suggestion on what moather board would work with it and be the same price or cheaper please let me know.

also i was unsure if i need a CPU cooler, if you dont think so please let me know!

Any am3+ socket motherboard will do . Just make sure it supports FX series. It's in the main info line.
look at newegg, read reviews. It's around the same price as the other AMD system.
There are the cheap ones, the mid-range ones,and the expensive ones.
CHoose from any of these :

Mostly the ones from Asus, gigabyte,msi and asrock are good.
But again,look at the rating & reviews.

Also, I suggest you don't buy a really cheap mobo. It's better to get one that'll work well for you for a long time than a cheaply made ones that'll break easily and thus needing replacements.
Maybe if you can queeze in a bit more $$$ you can get the ones along the 70-100 price range (at least the 970 series).
Better overclocking capabilities too!

Other than that, everything else on your build list seems solid enough.
But I'd suggest this instead for the PSU (same price): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want a good cooler for $25, get the Xigmatek Gaia, it performs comparably to the CM Hyper 212 EVO.

As for CPU/MB combo, on pcpartpicker, this is what I would look at:
