My current laptop won't handle Diablo 3 so i've been talking with a guy about putting together a rig that could handle it and the specifications he gave me were "It will be a rebuilt Dell xps with a core i3 540 cpu, 8 gb ram, 200+ gb SATA HD, DVD/RW and nvidia 260 gtx." My first thought was the 260 gtx is a bit old as my friend used one in 2009. Would this build handle diablo 3? if so, would i be able to run it on at least mid-ish settings? Any advice and help is appreciated.
Oh, the reason for this particular build is because my budget for this desktop (its a desktop, btw) is $400

I would look at pcpartpicker.com and see what's available piece by piece, do same with what's in that rebuilt (refurbished I assume) PC.
The beta didn't exactly have medium settings, but I ran it on a laptop and it still looked fine in LOW, just turn off clutter and shadows.

For $400, that's a good deal. The GTX 260 might not be modern, but it's far from frumpy. I'd ask which version it is (there were three different ones), but at this point it probably doesn't really matter too much.
A Core i3 540, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, ~250GB hard drive, GTX 260 and most importantly a copy of Windows is a great deal for $400. It might not be modern, but it's more than enough for the game and is quite a fair price.
