Diablo® III

Need Help w/ Graphics Card Please!

I need advice on a good graphics card that would let me play Diablo 3 with exceptional frame rate. I currently use XFX Radeon HD 4550 graphics card. Is there a better one that runs Diablo 3 smoother? My budget is around $100-$300... so here's my comp specs:

Operating System: MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad-Core Processor

RAM: 6 GB DDR3 system memory

Motherboard: PEGATRON CORPORATION VIOLET (CPU 1)

Graphics: hp f1703 (1280x1024@60Hz) / ATI Radeon HD 4550 (XFX Pine Group)

Hard Drive: 977GB Western Digital WDC WD10 EADS-65m2b1 SCSI Disk Device (ATA)

Optical Drives: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7231S5 SCSI CdRom Device / ELBY CLONEDRIVE SCSI CdRom Device

Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

Please Help! Thanks!! ^_^

I see this is an HP computer.

Best you can do, assuming your PC is a fat mid-tower, is a Radeon HD 7750 (without 6-pin PCI-E power plug requirement).

Were you referring to this kine Radeon HD 7750??

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=node%3D1161760&field-keywords=Radeon+HD+7750&rh=n%3A172282%2Cn%3A%21493964%2Cn%3A541966%2Cn%3A193870011%2Cn%3A1161760%2Ck%3ARadeon+HD+7750&ajr=0

If so then I need to upgrade my power supply too. If that's the case what would be the best power supply for that matter?

Yeah, any of these will work, and no, you don't need to upgrade your power supply (I assume it's at least 250W)

OMG!!!! Life Saver! :3 TYVM!

I know that my system only came with a 300W power supply, so if it really is at least 250W then the cards should be do my system well :3

If anything I still plan to upgrade my power supply to at least a 600W-650W. What power supply would you recommend for that matter?

Since you have an HP computer, there's a chance that off-the-shelf power supplies may not fit inside.

Your absolutely right, the tower is too small for the power supply that I wanted to put in, so i have to actually order an HP power supply and the highest they have is 400W... GG hp -.-

Thanks for all your help though, i'll look into the Radeon HD 7750, but if you think there are other types of card that my comp can candle Please let me know!

Thanks again for all the help ^_^

Tower is too small? Is this a fat mid-tower, or a slim case?

Your only other choice is to get a new computer case (to go with a new power supply), if you want something more powerful than the HD 7750, but seeing your CPU, 7750 should be sufficient.

I'm not too sure if it's a fat mid-tower or a slim case... All I know is that I actually took a ruler and measured the power supply in the comp and compared it to the one that I wanted to replace it.

My comp currently has:

I'm currently looking to put this in:

Sadly the one i'm currently looking at does not fit :(
But i'll try out the HD 7750 if anything ^_^

Looks like a fat mid tower to me. HD 7750 should fit.
