Diablo® III

Is this good enough for D3?

Damn, I think I'm actually done.

This is the setup, and all I'm stuck on is a decision on CPU and RAM.

Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231311 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231426

And now for CPU, I'm not sure what the difference is in performance between the Intel Core i3-2120, having 3.3GHz, and the Intel Pentium G630, having 2.7 GHz. They do have $50 in difference, but which would be better in your opinion?

And what is the difference between the 2 RAM sticks, because all I see is a difference in letters in certain spots -.-.

But overall, after deciding the CPU and RAM, is this a good PC?

If you are going to go with i3 or the Pentium, you can save $ by going ASRock H61M/U3S3.

This depends on whether you want to get an i5-2300 / i5-3430 later. If you will, the Pentium. If you won't, the i3.

As for the RAM: The Ripjaws X is supposedly "better". Since they are the same price, might as well.

Remember that the build does not come with an OS. If you need a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, you need to buy it.

And yes, the PC would be able to play a lot of games out there at maximum settings, except for more demanding games like Battlefield 3.

So, if I go for the i3, I can downgrade my motherboard to the ASRock H61M/U3S3 and still have the same performance?

Yes. The motherboard does not make that much of a performance difference.

Alright, So I guess I'll go with the i3, get the downgraded motherboard, and keep all the other parts I showed you. The only issue is the case, it doesn't seem that good based on people's comments on it. Would you have any other recommendations for a case?
