Your specs are very generic. How about models & model numbers? For instance, which 6-core processor are you considering? And why not an 8-core?

- The AMD 980G is an older chipset (actually it's the 880G) & is pretty rare these days. It's usually paired up with the older SB850 southbridge. Your motherboard should be based on the AMD 970 (or 990FX if you plan on running multiple video cards) & paired up with the SB950 southbridge, plus it should have 4 memory slots.

- RAM should be DDR3-1866

- Power supply should be at least 500W, single +12v rail design, active PFC, 80 plus efficiency rating, reliable brand name, 3-5 year warranty

OK I should let others appraise/critique your build for better feedback.
