Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASRock FM2A75M Pro4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Go with quality, name brand ram. G Skill, Corsair, Mushkin, Kingston, etc. Team is sketchy and has some bad reviews.

reason I'm going with team is cause it's a budget build but I will look into other brands if it doesn't work I still have 4gb of G.Skill eco hopefully by the time I have the money G.skill will be having a sale again

I looked at those but I wasn't sure if they would fit in with the CPU cooler I have chosen

Yeah I agree with itches, Even though you want to upgrade on a budget I'd be sticking with good brand names.
