If you save up more money also go for the fx-8350 cpu, it does cost a pretty penny but it blows that phenom out of the water. If not look for a second gen i3 (you will need an intel chipset mobo if you do) or a mid tier i5, both can be found close to the price of that phenom and are better. The video card is fine for now, Corsair is a good brand, I personally am a G.Skill fan but that's because it's great with my audio rendering. If it's only for gaming Corsair is just as good.
    Does the Phenom fit into the MSI board. Btw, all I can find is Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard . no others.

    They have a z77 version for the intel chipset if you decide to take the i3/i5 route. And yes MSI does have 990fxa boards as well as other boards that support earlier AMD chipsets. You should check the CPU compatibility of the board on the manufacturer's website to determine whether or not the Phenom will work as a precaution to purchasing the board.

    None, bad timings/voltage ratio IMHO. If your buying RAM with heat spreaders you might aswell get decent RAM.
