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.

-Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

-EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support

-Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

-ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk

-COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

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

-ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel

-Coolermaster 430 elite case

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?

I actually like your build looks decent to me only thing i would suggest is if you plan on overclocking you add CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus also i have had that case before it doesn't have good cable management so i would get a different case these are great cases for same price and this is 10 bucks more but worth it
