Any memory you get to use with the AMD FX 6300 will be DDR3 whilst your future upgrade will most likely be DDR4... The GPU should be fine across generations. The motherboard will dictate your CPU and RAM.

You do not have the old motherboard and RAM? I would keep those and just upgrade the GPU and if you do not already have one, add a SSD to boot from for now if you are wanting to stagger a build.
