okay, so I'm planning on building myself a computer, and it's actually for quite a bit of gaming. I want it so that it runs games with no lag at all. Probably the games I will play are civiliazation5, starcraft2, and diablo3 in the future. So, If you guys would please look at the parts I have chosen and see if they would be good for the games. I'm not completely sure if I should get the video card, so if there is one you would like to recommend, please tell.

Also tell me if the processor I am getting is enough, and if it beats the AMD processors.

Intel DH55PJ Motherboard - Intel H55, LGA 1156, Dual DDR3 Support, Micro ATX, SATA, DVI, VGA, USB 2.0 ($200)

Western Digital WD1002FAEX Caviar Black Hard Drive - 1TB, 7200RPM, 64MB, SATA 6Gbs

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, Mini HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11, Fermi w/Limited Lifetime Warranty with Registration

Intel Core i5 750 BX80605I5750 Processor - 2.66GHz, LGA 1156, 8MB L3 Cache, Quad-Core, Lynnfield, Retail

Yep those would be compatible. Not sure the motherboard you are talking of, and for $200? is it this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But yeah, with this build you can play Starcraft 2 on ultra, and civalization 5 no problem. The only improvement I could think of would be perhaps to get a motherboard that could be compatible for SLI configuration just incase you wanna add another GeForce GTX 460 in the future, but other than that you are good.
