Hello forum


I built this rig a loong time ago specificaly for warcraft 3 and doom 3, I still am using it today after a few upgrades to play sc2 and WoW. But i am curious if i will be able to run Diablo3 on it??

Heres the specs

Coolmax 500watt PSU (replaced antec 300watt)
Amd Athlon Xp 2800+ (OC'd to 2.2ghz)
Shuttle AN35N 400 ULTRA motherboard
Radeon HD4670 1gb agp card (replaced radeon 9700 PRO)
1.5 gb of ram
80gb hard drive


As of now i can comfortably run starcraft 2 on medium/high settings..
Just looking for an opinion on if i can run Diablo 3 once that drops.
I would like to be able to have this computer be able to play it.
THANKS :)

I don't think they have released the system requirements yet and it's going to depend on how low they go with the required video card. You will be at the low end if you make it with that card.

Your going to have issues running it on a single core even with low physics in the game. I've had a chance to test it on many systems as a current Beta tester in D3
but a single core is really going to be pushing it specially with a lot of destruction in the game

Are you planning on doing that now or is this something that you are going to be doing when you save up some money. If you are considering doing it now and want some help then list a budget amount and we will see what you can get for what you want to spend.

Im not able to build one right now but i see it in the near future. definitely before diablo 3 is out.
Budget around $400?? I already have a OS, hard drive, and a mid tower case (if i can reuse it) and a power supply.

The problem you're going to run into reusing old components like your hard drive and CD/DVD-ROM Drive is that they're IDE drives. Fewer and fewer boards are being made to support tech this old. A quick check on Newegg didn't show any socket 1155 motherboards that still had PATA (IDE) ports. However, there are some AMD AM3 boards and going with an AMD processor is more budget friendly.

Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-M AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - $80
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 645 Propus 3.1GHz - $105
RAM: Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $22
Graphics Card: XFX Double D HD-685X-ZDFC Radeon HD 6850 1GB - $170

Total Cost: $377 + Shipping

The total for these parts is $456.97 and together with the parts that you do have would give you a very good performing Pc.

As long as it's within budget, I don't see any reason not to go with a quad-core.

Games are starting to use quad cores and I wouldn't be surprised if Diablo 3 didn't make use of the quad core.
