Diablo® III

Will This Computer Suffice?

Hi guys, I've been using a Mac since 88 and the only time i ever used Windows was in High School and at a summer internship. I've been a Blizzard Gamer since Warcraft 1 because of their seamlessness on the Mac OS.

D3's performance on Macs is worse than dismal.

I'll be purchasing my first Windows Desktop for gaming. I wanted to know if you guys think this will be enough, because I am completely clueless. I've been reading reviews, combing thru specifications, and doing comparisons for the last couple hours. I think I found the best value in an HP Pavilion from Best Buy, but would really appreciate the input from some more experienced gamers/Windows users.

I am aware it doesnt have an insane graphics card, but I'm really on a budget. All I want is to be able to run D3 (as well as some Steam games) with Good FPS and acceptable Graphics.

Like I said, I'm really on a budget here, and I'm not looking to use this Computer for anything other than Diablo 3, DoTA2, and other Steam Games down the road.

Thanks Guy :D

I strongly suggest building your own pc. Here's a great video on doing just that (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkykETgkoo).

And here's a link showing great pc computer builds across different budgets (www.logicalincrements.com).
