Christmas Special - New computer?

Posts: 32
Saw specs for a new computer, and was wondering if I should just outright buy this computer, then upgrade with a new graphics card, and maybe a better i5 processor. This comp is $700 FYI.

Curious what your thoughts are:

(the important stuff), Win7 64 bit
PROCESSOR 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3350P processor (6M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
MONITOR No Monitor
MEMORY 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz - 2 DIMMs
HARD DRIVE 1TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s
VIDEO CARD NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 1GB DDR3 for Win 8
OPTICAL DRIVE 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW), write to CD/DVD
WIRELESS Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0+LE
SOUND CARD Integrated 7.1 with WAVE MAXXAudio 4


Also, if you know of a generic 'computer' run to D3 @ max settings, perhaps one that someone already built, please let me know! Thanks.

Dell XPS, 660s, 660?

Seems pretty sufficient for Diablo 3, but then again the highest end computer is still going to suffer the stuttering issue.
