Advice on my new build please {HELP}

The 6300, like mentioned above, is a better CPU. Your graphics card wasn't reporting a price, so I hope you aren't considering a $600 budget, but an $800 budget. Changed it around for you.

If you can help it, you don't want to put the Vishera chips on the 760/780 motherboards. They're barely ok for the 4300, but don't have the ideal power delivery. At this budget, I would definitely not recommend one of those boards, unless mATX is a must.
