Final Gaming Build - Opinions pls -$800

Looking for a very solid gaming rig to last for a while, mainly playing Diablo3 and possibly a few more demanding titles with light web browsing. Wont be overclocking or using crossfire.

Is this a really solid build to go with? Is everything compatible? the total was about 800. Wasn't sure on motherboard.

I know this is a little overkill for diablo3 but is it smarter to go with the i5-2500k and gta 560ti instead of say an i3-2120/gtx 550ti for about 170 dollars more?
