This rig will be used to Watch movies and Play Blizzard games (Diablo III, SC2, WoW) Also Civ, League of Legends. Wont be playing to many FPS since i get motion sickness lol :p 

Want to know if there are any compatability issues and suggestion will be welcomed.

Will use CF/SLI probably not anytime soon. Probably just upgrade GPU down the line.

Trying to make a rig i wont have to change to much aside from GPU/Mem for a while.

I have the Monitor/ Naga Mouse/ Keyboard / Rosewill Blackhawk Tower/ and Rosewill Hive 750w PSU alrdy

So my Budget on rest is 750ish including OS.

Are you planning on overclocking the cpu? If your not then I would suggest a lower cpu and put the money into a higher end video card. The thing with a gaming rig is that the most important part is the video card so with what you have for the budget you would need to look at the parts that you've selected and see if you can go lower on some to free up money for a higher level video card.
A good place to start would be the cpu if your not going to overclock and overclocking the cpu will not have as much of an affect on a game as a better video card would.

initially i may not OC but down the line i may in order to extend the life of it. Also down the line i would prob upgrade the GPU if the games i play get more demanding.

Ok then the build is fine and you could add another video card later on with that motherboard.
