So, I've never built a computer before but I'm planning to. My budget is around $800. Here's what I've come up so far. I would just like to ask for an experienced builder's opinion on my soon-to-be rig. Does everything seem alright to an experienced builder's eye? Or is are their components in my build that are a bit off.

Also, should I really overclock the FX-6300? My goal for this build is strictly for gaming.

Thank you for all your opinion.

Lastly, I am planning to pick up a 1TB hard drive later, but for now 120gb ssd will do because I will just be playing Dota 2 and CS GO, and maybe Skyrim.

OH LOL! IM SORRY! You can tell I'm pretty new hahaha. Wow, I think I might just save another $50 more and go with what you suggested. Thank you very much for your insight! I'm very inclined to build a PC now  :D 

Can I ask one more thing, Would the stock speeds on the FX 6300 be good enough for the R9 280? It won't bottleneck? I'm kind of unsure about overclocking just yet.

yea you will be fine if a 6300 can run a 7990 (duel core gpu) without bottleneck you will be fine

also not trying to sound like im picking on you because your new but use the quote button if your talking to someone directly i gives us a notification rather then having to come back and check
