Hey I'm going to be building my first computer because I had realized it is efficient, cheap, and better.

Can this run Diablo 3 (preferrably on high settings?). What I'm looking for is if this build is compatible. Are the parts compatible with each other?
Do u think it will have any heating issues? Overall, is this a good build for casual/gaming use ?

My build that I'm currently planning on purchasing includes the following:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


PSU: Corsair CX600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Motherboard: Intel BOXDH67DLCB3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


CPU: 3.3GHz Intel Core i5-2500k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw X 1600MHz 1.5V http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


HD: 500GB Seagate Barracuda ST http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Optical: Lite On DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


If any suggestions please tell me!! I really need help as this is my first build. Any feedback is appreciated.
NOTE: I did not include the OS/keyboard/mouse because I already purchased this!


Thanks!

1: dont get a h77 mobo when you have a k chip. get something like the asrock extreme4 z77 for the i5
2: Do you plan to crossfire later on? if you do, get the xfx 650w core edition. they are made by seasonic and are great power supplies. it is also cheaper than most corsair power supplies which are also made by seasonic. if you are not to crossfire, the 550w model will do you fine.
3: i prefer the antec 302 over haf 912 but its your personal choice.
4: might want to throw in a hyper 212 evo if you want better temps and overclocking with the k chip

P8Z77-V PRO is overpriced for its category. the gigabyte z77x-ud5h will have the same or more features for 20 dollars less
