-Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52400

-ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6GB/s USB3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

-Coolermaster 430 elite case

^^Hard drive/OEM bundle^^^

-CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

- hd7850 >??? will this work fine with blizzard games?

-Haven't picked a PSU yet, looking for a 500w one that is quality and fits well in the case.


Is this build compatible?

I'm building this computer for gaming and web browsing only. Specifically Diablo3/WoW/maybe a few other titles, probably won't be playing games like crysis2 etc. However the option to play more demanding games would be nice.

I'm usually more of an nVidia fan, but it's hard to pass up on that 7850. The i3-2120 should be fine for gaming and won't bottleneck the 7850, but if you feel that you need more power you can get an i5-2500k for about $75 more good luck!

For $6 more, he can get a Caviar Blue 500GB, which is much more reliable.

Will that mobo and processor work well with an hd7850? Should I just get an i3?

You could.
