Default Asking for advice on my PC upgrading choices

I want to upgrade my PC after a motherboard failure. My socket-775 motherboard died, and thus I decided to buy a new one, with another socket.

My motherboard of choice is a GIGABYTE H81M-DS2 (socket 1150).

Since my old CPU and RAM are not fit for that motherboard, I will do the following upgrades too:

CPU
From: Intel Core2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz
To: Intel Pentium G3260 3.30 GHz (I can't figure out if it has a fan or not, so please help me with this)

RAM
From: 2x2 GB 1333 MHz DDR2 (I can't access it so I don't know the manufacturer)
To: Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1600C11 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3

All of this will cost 130 euros (144 dollars) in total. Aside from the assessment, can I find those items somewhere for a better price?

Other recommendations are welcome, but I'd really prefer it if they didn't surpass the 130 euro mark.

If you're buying the CPU in retail package then it will have the H/F assembly.

Your suggestion specs should work just as fine!
