Hello, this is my first build that I have decided on for a PC. I was wondering if the parts listed would be compatible with each other, and if the graphics card + core combo would be good enough for games like Starcraft II, Diablo 3 and maybe Guild Wars 2 in the future. Thanks!
My budget is about $800 CAD before taxes

This is Focusing on getting a good MOBO/CPU/PSU combo for the money. GPU, HDD(SSD), etc.. can always be easily upgraded later.
Of course you can probably get more bang for less if you went with an AMD system.
