    Everything you selected is compatible and would work together no problem.

    If I choose A10-6800K instead of FX-6300, will it be compatible with all the others?

    No. The A10-6800K is FM2 socket CPU and the FX-6300 is AM3+. The motherboard wont be compatible with the A10-6800K the rest of the parts will but the Fx-6300 would be a better choice.

    The FX 6300 is optimal for budget gaming you can't get much cheaper without losing a lot of performance.

    +1 to both buildzoid and Devon68

    I am really happy with the FX 6300 in my build. In the future you could buy a CPU cooler and then overclock it for even better performance.
