I basically want to be able to play bf3 on max and diablo 3 (im assuming if bf3 was maxed then diablo 3 could easily be played)

Im looking to stay around the 1000 dollar area if possible..

Hello!
First of all- you should try to clean up your post. Cutting down to productnames will do.

Seems to me its an okay setup. The PC will probably run battlefield 4 without problem. (no typo :p )
So if you goal is only running D3 and BF3, you wont need a PC this powerful. The PSU, the RAM and the mainboard is maybe with too many features you wont notice anyways.
My suggestions:
Buy 1333mhz RAM, its real cheap now, and you wont notice any difference between that and 1600.
Buy a cheaper mainboard and smaller PSU.
Get a 120GB samsung 830 SSD for OS, and a cheap TB-harddrive for stash.

You could maybe build a PC capable of running BF3 in a Mini tower. I would then recommend "Silverstone Temjin TJ08-E" In that case, youll have to choose other components.
