You are not very balanced in terms of CPU and GPU.

I'd go with an AMD FX-6300 and a 270x or 270

Will that card still work though? Or will I need to upgrade the processor?

Get a cooler so you can oc the CPU and you'll prolly be fine for most games (judging for a quick Google, I'm not a PC gamer tbh), cooler master hyper 212 evo was king of the budget coolers if you have an extra ~$30 in the budget.

Edit. Mobo only supports up to 1600 ram
