If I forgot anything, please tell me. Also if you have any better suggestions, let me know. I'm trying to keep the price affordable, so please, nothing too expensive.(I'd like to keep the entire system between $300 and $400 if possible)

Everything appears to be compatible and I can't think of anything you missed except for perhaps the operating system.

It is all compatible, but I do suggest going with a motherboard based off the AMD 900 series chipset to keep future upgrade options open. You will also need a graphics card. Due to the low budget, you have two options, go with a AMD 970 motherboard or go for an AMD APU-based system with graphics already on the CPU itself. An APU system is a little more expensive, but you don't have to buy a graphics card.

Motherboard: ASRock A55 PRO3 FM1 AMD A55 - This is also a bit more advanced, but you can only use AMD APU's so your upgrade options are much less. $74

APU: AMD A6-3650 Llano 2.6GHz Socket FM1 - This isn't AMD's highest end APU, it's an A6 not A8, but it is still capable. If this is too expensive, and you aren't making a gaming PC or needing much performance, the AMD A4-3400 Llano 2.7GHz Socket FM1 is a good alternative. $119

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM - You forgot to add this. $99

Since you already have a graphics card, I would go for an AMD 970 motherboard, like the ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 if you have the money.
