Diablo 3 (i5 3570) (8GB RAM) (GT440 DDR5)

Games & Technology
is ok if i run on this system?
No way a GT 440 can run D3 on max settings on high res and go above 25 fps. You might get 40 fps if you play on low settings though.

Kinda strange that you would bundle a powerful CPU with a weakish GPU. Consider a GTX 650 ti or HD 7770 if you are intent on a good budget mid-range GPU.
if not okay you either have some serious faulty hardware or background processes running or your net sucks, or bnet sucks. one of 3.
Looks about like my system, and I've never had the slightest issue.
Generally you want to spend roughly the same on the gpu as you do your cpu.

Depends on the type of game you want to play.

I got a cheap $120 CPU and a high end GPU because I play a lot more FPS type games. I can max settings any FPS i've installed with ease, but load up some of those SC2 custom maps and I am hooped!

Likewise, a lot of games that require strong CPU's like Civ5 or SC2 don't need a very powerful GPU to get top graphics.

Which is exactly why I stated that generally you want to spend the same amount for both cpu and gpu...
