So my budget is about $750 so I built this PC, I'll mostly just be playing D3 on it and also some web browsing and hopefully some other games maybe later but nothing crazy, what do you guys think?

I could also lower the price by downgrading to a "biostar" mother board and save $40 so I could maybe upgrade some other things, should I do this?

I also downgraded to a regular pc fan instead of using a liquid cooling system, is this alright?

I'm a newb when it comes to building PC's so any help would be great.

You should be fine. I checked D3 system requirements last week to verify my own setup, which was adequate, and your proposed system is better than my own.

To answer your other questions, yes I believe using a liquid cooling system would be overkill given your component list. And, unless you wanted to upgrade your video card with the price difference, I wouldn't change the MB choice. I'm by no means an expert though so more knowledgeable people can chime in.

But, you will be fine playing D3.

Whats the total on the above build? I would add the DEFAULT CASE FANS since you are reducing the CPU cooler a bit. its only $9 and should help a little.

Its as barebones as its gonna get. i assume you can add parts from newegg in the future as your budget warrants. The PSU would need to be upgraded as soon as possible, their XTREMEGEAR brand is junk and can fry a whole system. get a corsair for mid to high quality or coolermaster for mid, raidmax, for low-mid. xtremegear i would dump in the ocean.

after that just upgrade the GPU as need and OC it.
