Build to play Diablo3 Budget 900$

Good day to all,
I have another friend who wants a new computer so I thought I would ask here for tips for the components.
It will be a build to play mostly D3 and probably newer game to come out. He doesn't need the mouse/keyboard or monitor. He will need windows on top of that.

Any suggestions for a build?

Thanks,

    Here's my $900 pc I'm ordering this weekend. The hard drive/cpu/heatsink/gpu you can get a little cheaper at amazon if you have Prime for free shipping. With not overclocking you can go with the stock heatsink but I have just had bad luck with them so I am getting a cm 212 to go with my build. Also, if you have a Microcenter closeby theres a deal on teh mobo I listed below and a i5 3570k for a bit cheaper.
