This is what ive decided to get. My goal was to keep the parts below 650 if possible then get the OS as well. I just play diablo 3 and SC 2.
If you have any opinions regarding my choices please let me know or if you see where i bought a bad reviewed part or a part you've had a bad experience with i'd love to know that to make sure i am completely satisfied with my choices!
Let me know what you think!

this looks really good especially just for diablo 3 and starcraft 2 (I'm sure there are other games). this rig will allow you to do way more by playing skyrim, ESO, BF4 (maybe not maxed out), and probably Titanfall as well. not sure if you are interested in those games but thats just an idea of what you can do

What would you build to play SC2 and Diablo 3 on high/ultra with no lag? max 650 budget, but obviously saving as much as possible.
Intel build.

i think the most you could do is lower the video card to the 650 Ti. that could save you a little and still give you great performance for both of those games (high FPS). all of the other parts look really good.
