Post recommend???

you might have seen i have posted alot of threads about certain components from a computer, well i finally think iv made my mind up. After watching neweggs youtube video (Combo DIY Build, Mini Mobile PC) i think im going to go with something quite similar. Although i need some advice as i would like to change certain components?

this is the build :
Case & PSU: Silverstone SUGO SG05B USB 3.0 Black Mini-ITX Case with 300W PSU
CPU: AMD A8-3870K Quad-Core APU
Cooler: Cooler Master GeminII M4
Video Card: MSI AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition
Motherboard: AsRock A75M-ITX
Memory: G.Skill DDR3 1333 8GB (2x4GB) dual-channel kit
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200RPM
ODD: Samsung 8x Slim DVD Burner

can anyone recommend a different motherboard, preferably cheaper.
could i change the AMD 8-3870K to a AMD FX 8120 ?. Also is there a cheaper Graphics card out there the MSI one in this build is 110, but my budget is about 50-80 for a graphics card?
any help would be much appreciated ?

For the graphics card just keep going down in number (i.e., 7770 > 7750 > 7670 > ...) until you reach you're desired price.

don't skimp on the psu, you will regret it. Get a known/trusted brand. my psu went an took the mobo with it.

the fx-4 is nearer your budget the fx-8 is 130. and the mobo for these cpu's.

89 card.
