What is your budget?  What is it being used for?  I have some concerns, but it may also be a price-point decision.

Also, there's no graphics card.  The 4300 does not have integrated graphics, so do already have a graphics card?  

The CPU does come with a heatsink and fan, so that part is covered.

Do you have a case already?  No OS is listed - are you running a freeware version of Linux or plan on purchasing an Windows 10 license, or something else?  Since you have no optical drive, you'll need to get a USB install of the OS if Windows unless you are cannabalizing a different machine, which should be fine for an optical drive.

But in general, the CPU is a socket AM3+ and the motherboard supports AM3+.

You don't list specific RAM to verify, but the motherboard does support DDR3 1066 (which is what I think you meant?) so there is a high likelihood it will be compatible (but can't say for sure).
