This build is just lacking a storage drive...no idea how much you want or need. If it's a multi monitor set up then look at the 6950 2GB down below.

I don't need much storage atm I can upgrade that later. I basically want a comp that can run Diablo 3, Wow and SC2 at max settings with no problems at all high Frame rate. Poker really no requirements for that. I checked out your ideas around 990 with a few warranty's. Any others want to chime in and give some opinions greatly appreciate it as I will be buying today or tomorrow.

Yes it is, it's not really that risky but it is super easy. People exaggerate the negatives but generally it's positives. The SB chips are so easy to overclock it's worth buying just to have if you ever do specially since the performance gains are immense.
