mostly looking for newbie friendly board XD

2- I only planning on single gpu and the games I play only wow and diablo 3 on 1080

Hey, I'd like to give you some advice on your build.

1. get a cooler master 212 evo cooler, it's an air cool that's quieter/superior than the H60 Liquid.
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/280737-29-tomshardw...
2. The asrock board is fine and if you're looking at serious overclocking.

3. Are you overclocking?

4. Full budget on build? I'll post my suggestion as If you're new you may not have chosen the optimal build.

This build can also run the games you want no trouble at high/ultra and is considerably less, I feel you were a bit overkill before.

My suggestion.

CPU/Cooler/Mobo > All quality parts, the Cooler is VERY good value for $$$ and the Mobo/CPU are some of the best on the market.
HDD/SDD fairly standard as you'd already chose them

GPU - EVGA 780ti run anything you want 1080p single monitor
PSU - Bit big for the current build but say you wanted to stick in a second 780ti for SLI in the future? Sure why not.

This system will look at the games you want to play and then run them, whilst jogging a half marathon and walking across the moon simultaneously.

By the way OP, the 780Ti compared to the 780 is little to no difference. Wait for the 790 if you want to.
