I'm not making a "diablo rig" :) I just want a general idea of what kind of power i'm buying.

WElll with an core I3 first gen ... i can run Diablo 3 on hightest . So basicly if u have something average of today. You should be able to run it on hightest with directx11
totally legit :) its for personal and travel expenses and i dont own a car. so it becomes gaming money :D
I only got a Radeon HD 5770 and so far the game runs perfectly, so I don't see why you would have to get a more expensive video card. Unless you're only using the one that came with the motherboard.....

Also DirectX 11 FTW!!!!!
7770 = overpriced mid range card, get a 6850 or 550 ti/6770. 560ti/7850 for 1080p gameplay.

dude i used diablo 3 to upgrade myself.

fx6100, asus m5a99x 990x board, 8g 1600 g.skill ram, 120 SSD, and the coolermaster HAF 993 or w/e is siiick.

i will be running 9800GT SLI cuz i already have a 9800gt and the second one i can get for free. woot.

From all the research i did HD6870 was the best value you can get for 170. If you move up in price then a gtx 560Ti is the best value for 230. HD 6950 ties this category but a bit more powerful but a bit more pricey at 270$

Or 6790, which is about $10-$20 more than 6770 but alot more bang for ur buck...
I have the 6770... It is supposed to be a bit better than the 7770 on the benchmarks. Great card though. Would recommend it.
Looking at current deals i'm stuck with the choice of either 2x XFire'd 7770's @ $240~ or 1 gtx 560 ti. Comes down to whether i want to get 1x gtx 560 ti and wait till i have more money to SLI another one or just get the biggest bang for my buck now.

Edit: The current sale is a free upgrade from 7750 so look at pricing on the 7750 vs power of the 7770.

Same card I got. Works perfectly.
7770 is currently overprices since NVidia hasn't released their cards yet. Going with a 6000 series is a lot better due to better performance/price ratio.

Here is a decent review of the card compared to a 6000 series card.

HD 6850 is the best value on the market still. It's not even close. You can get a 6850 for $150 and it's better than a gtx 550 for $20-30 less. AMD is inferior to Nvidia in everything but bang for buck (Nvidia game support is WAAAAAY better) but if budget is the issue then it's AMD all the way.

If you've got $200 to spend, get a GTX 560.


ATI is currently ahead of Nvidia in regards to "bang for your buck". However, Nvidia will release their newest cards and the paradigm will shift (which will drop the price of the current Nvidia cards you're currently comparing).

ATI and Nvidia have been doing this flip flop for years. ATI is just currently on the upper cusp right now.

I noticed the same. But at a 50$ discount on each card the price to power ratio changes quite a bit.
Edit: the sale is a 7770 at the price of a 7750

I have a single 6950 2gb with a i5-2500k (o/c to 4.3GHz) and it easily runs DIII at all max settings. Hope that gives you some useful perspective.
