Ok ok I think I got it. I'm building my computer around D3 system prerequisites.

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Phenom+II+X4+925

I'm looking at about 550 right now with set up

I kinda based my system around the phenom ii x4 925
I don't have the money this month to get the Radeon 6870/50
I was kinda thinking about ditching the traditional hdd for a ssd. Can't get both right now.
There's room to upgrade to.

Or you could use an old HDD that you have and just get the SDD instead of buying a new HDD

Would help if you listed a total price as a rough idea.

would be nice to see, a super low budget build for this game, my buddy wants a PC for it, but he is super st@!@*d for cash. I seen the 540$ here, and that might be a good price for him, I got some things already monitor, keyboard mouse speakers HDD and an optical drive, just need the rest.

You forgot to wait at least two years until the game is released.

if u can afford the 560 go with that.

a buddy of mine bought an i5 2500 with a gtx 560 for around 600 bucks. I assembled it for him and picked out the parts. his gtx 560 was on sale at new egg for 150 and he went to a retail place called microcenter for his CPU and MOBO


much bettter PC and not too much more.

Stay away from amd. Intel is the winner here

LOL - I have literally built two system while saying I'm sure this is the system I'll be playing Diablo 3 on...

Both of those systems have been handed down and I'm sticking with my Mac for now.

Wow - these guys look like they really get it. Have you personally bought from them or seen their products?

Ditching the HDD for the SSD ain't such a bad idea at the moment considering the prices of HDD's. I bought my 1tb less then a year ago for 5 bucks and now it is 120+. I use only my 128gb SSD and haven't even touched the 1tb.

If you only game a 128gb SSD should be enough.

Cost wise the sdd and hdd are he same amount. I don't think I'll need a hdd. I'm going with the ssd.

I'd use Wegame instead of Fraps. Fraps is too unstable.

Do you have to buy or is there a free version?
