Put the system into PC Partpicker and see if it flags any compatibility issues.  The obvious problem I see is that you have selected an FM2+ slot motherboard and a AM3+ CPU.  The motherboard is designed for AMD FM2 APU's and CPU's.  To use that CPU you would need an AM3+ motherboard, for example this.

 

To save money you could use a cheaper case, mouse and keyboard.  They are quite expensive items you have selected, and not necessarily the best value.  You could also go for 8Gb memory rather than 16Gb which should be enough for 99% of users.  If you don't need Blu Ray reading/writing a cheap DVD-RW drive will save around $60.

 

What is your overall budget, and have you included an operating system in the budget?

That build at PC Part Picker is very heavily slanted towards GPU performance at the cost of CPU.  If you're going to do anything performance-related, such as gaming, you should get a better CPU.  I would go for the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 motherboard paired with the AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz CPU.  If you're trying to save money, the AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz would be a good alternative.  I would also suggest a slightly more powerful PSU even though your GPU only needs 500W.  Having a little more power available is usually a good idea if you are going to overclock, plus, running the PSU at its design limit is usually not a good idea.  I would suggest the CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W.

I'm not sure if the PC Partpicker build has changed since I looked earlier?  I would think an A10-6800K should provide enough CPU power for gaming purposes, do you not agree DJBPace?  It does have a reasonable IGP which will go to waste with the GTX 760 card though so perhaps the cheaper FX6300K would be a better choice (and has two more CPU cores and no wasted IGP).  Combine it with a decent cooler (e.g. Evo 212) and motherboard and some overclocking should be fairly straightforward.  I do agree about the PSU.  For $10-15 extra the CX600 or CX600M give more headroom.

The A10-6800K isn't a bad APU, but for gaming beyond basic Flash, older, or other web-based titles, the integrated graphics will not suffice.  If the integrated graphics are going to go unused with the GTX 760, it would make sense to get a dedicated CPU with an add-in GPU, both offering better performance over the APU.  If any kind of computationally intensive activities are done, such as encoding, the FX line will easily outperform the APU.  In gaming, you will get better performance with the FX part.  With the OP's build, the GTX 760 is by no means a budget-oriented GPU.  The APU could bottleneck with the GTX 760.

 

The FX-8300 series has twice the "Cores," though both the CPU and APU utilize the FX definition of the word.  With the add-in performance-based GPU, the integrated part will go unused.  In the end, it makes more sense to go for a dedicated CPU and GPU for a gaming build rather an APU.
