I've never personally used that board, but it looks okay for the price range / features. The only thing that I would be hesitant about would be the power delivery. It's only a 4+1 setup, so I wouldn't expect much of an overclock.

You have some decent components. I would strongly advise not buying that weak of a motherboard. 4+1 especially with the crappy components MSI uses just can't recommend it.

It's not an MSI board ^ But I agree with chrisjames61. That 4+1 will only cause you problems.

Oh, I didn't notice it was a Gigabyte board. The components could be a little better. The bios? We all know how bad a Gigabyte bios can be.
