Hey everyone,

I'm upgrading my Dell XPS 420 so I can play more graphics intense games, primary Diablo 3 at the highest graphic settings. Here are my current specs:

Processor: Intel Duo E8500 3.16GHz 3.16Ghz
RAM: 4 Gigs
System: 32-bit Windows Vista
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3650

I'm thinking of buying the following and I just need to know if they'll be compatible with a Dell XPS 420.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=3C...

Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks for reading!

PSU isn't great. Change to an Antec, VP-450.

Your CPU and DDR2 RAM will hold you back form playing at high settings.

DON'T buy more RAM. Your computer can only use 3.3gb because it is 32-bit windows.
