i5 2400 build for around $650.

Do you guys see anything wrong with this?

I will be gaming (LoL, WoW, Diablo 3)

Only thing I am unsure about is graphics card. The 6850 is a little cheaper and seems to always have good reviews. I will most likely be upgrading my graphics card later on in about 6-7 months.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Also if you see anywhere where I could save money that would be great!

No. You've made good choices in your price range. I've found some used 1155 cpus for about half their original price recently on craigslist, but you may not have that option.
