Diablo® III

Need computer upgrade help to run game client

recently had my gaming laptop take a crap on me, had to resort to an old desktop. loaded game and it lags pretty bad, suspect it needs a video card upgrade but unsure of what to get? was looking at possbily a GeForce GTX 560 ti since it was on the supported list for high performance.

desktop specs
Gateway DX4720-03

Win 7 32bit
4 GB Ram
Intel Pentium E5200 / 2.5 GHz
300 GB SSD
NVIDIA GeForce 7100

any help is appreciated

The GeForce 7100 is on our list of unsupported cards. Any modern card would help but I really wouldn't spend too much considering your Gateway is pretty old already. The cpu it's using is below the minimum requirements too.

i must say i run the game with a gtx 560 ti 2gb and it's running smooth as hell...
would consider a complete new mainboard cpu graphical card and some more memory :P

So i'm goin to build a new comp. thinking of going with the i5 2500k cpu since ive heard it screams and is awesome for overclocking. which motherboard should i pair it with? and would it make sense to get a mobo with good enough integrated video to support d3 or should i focus more on getting a separate card? looking to get a good bare-bones kit for around $500 (cpu, mobo, ram, power supply)

will be using on my 46 inch tv as a monitor and hdmi is preferred.

any input is greatly appreciated.
