"Will my PC run D3?" READ THIS Before Posting

Amd Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 4400+
2.31 ghz
1 gb of ram
I believe it's a diablo 500 watt power supply. I'm not sure the mother board
The video card under my display adapter says ati radeon hd 2600
Windows xp sp3

This setup runs diablo 3 now but all settings are low or off aa is on and I need to have several processes off to ensure no lag. And it still happens from time to time
Needs new CPU, RAM, motherboard, graphics card, power supply, and getting Windows 7 would help.

If case is a standard mid-tower, you could re-use that. The hard disk and DVD drive can also be re-used if it's SATA interface.
I found a i5 3.0 ghz with boost a 1tb and 8gb of ram and the nvidia gtx 550ti
How much is this?
599 for tower. 130 for card
Not worth it then. :/
As per my guide, for $750ish, you should be getting a system with a better graphics card.

Consider CyberPowerPC / iBuyPower and use my guide's example builds, if you don't want to build your own.
So will gt 520 run the game on low with 60+ fps? Thats all i need.
Depends massively on what monitor resolution you use, ToRgenjaa.
1660 i think. Whichever one is in the 1600's
GT 520 will run the game well enough to get by at low settings, but when things get crowded, it's probably not going to run at 60 FPS.
Will D3 run on this:
Processor: AMD FX-4100, 4x3.6 GHz
Graphics: nVidia GeForce GTX 550Ti, 1024 MB DDR5, PCI-E

8 GB DDR3-1333 (2x4GB, PC3-10600), Dual Channel

550 Watt LC6550 Silent, 12cm

thx in advance.
It'll run D3 perfectly fine, although I wouldn't have gone with AMD FX CPU, nor the 550 Ti (both are not price-efficient). But yes, it'll run D3 perfect.
Thx for the quick response. :)
Is there a comprehensive list of PC's on the market that will run Diablo III with no problem for us tech illiterate bunch that don't feel comfortable/knowledgeable enough to take on replacing components or building one from scratch?

It always changes, just put forth a budget you are comfy with and make a thread.
Just want to say my laptop is:

AMD Quad Core A8-4500M Processor 1.9 GHz (4MB Cache)
6 GB SDRAM RAM
750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 7640

and Diablo 3 runs great on high. Only slow downs when there are tons and tons of mobs on screen.
I'm looking to get rid of my PC, monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc for cheap.. just so disappointed in Diablo 3,
Antec 1200
i5-2500k
GTX 560ti
60GB SSD
1 TB HDD
850W PSU
z68 mobo

24" Monitor, Razer Lycosa keyboard, Logitech G5 Mouse, Logitech x-530 5.1 surround speakers if anyone's interested
Any help would be appreciated with this but I have 2 questions:

1) If I have a retail copy of Diablo 3 installed on my desktop, will that same copy be able to install on my laptop as well? (by installing the game client through my battle.net account on said laptop)

2) If I can install it that would be great but my laptop is pretty old. Would it even play? The specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor P8400
2.26 GHz | 3 MB L2 Cache | 1066 MHz FSB
GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800M GTS | 512 MB GDDR3 VRAM
RAM: 4096 MB 1066 MHz DDR3 memory (2 × 2048)

Thanks for the help
1) Yes. You can even copy over D3 client from your PC to laptop (using home networking, USB sticks, DVD burner, or what have you).

2) It will play well (relatively speaking).
