Without wading all the way through that wall of text, I can tell you, straight away, that you cannot use an Intel processor in a motherboard with a AMD chipset and processor socket.

No, it won't. You'll need a Haswell socket 1150 motherboard.

2.8 GB of RAM is ok if only for gaming.

3.I'd recommend a 650W or more PSU for the GTX760.

4.If you can squeeze in a SSD within your budget as a booting device,you'll see a huge performance boost.

5.I didn't see any case included.

6.Wonder why you'd need a 50M ethernet cable?
