Overclocking is boosting the capabilities of your CPU and GPU, it DOES produce heat and doing it not correctly will destroy your system.
Crossfire and SLI is where you have 2 GPU's basically one rendering a frame and then the other GPU rendering another.
Your monitor is running at a max of 1920x1080


Heres my thoughts on a build:

AMD Phenom II X4 975BE w/ Team Xtreem RAM $177
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
(Good budget CPU and nice budget RAM)

Gigabyte 7850 $250
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(Look up how to overclock and this thing will be as good as its $350 brother the 7870)

ASRock Extreme4 Mobo $110
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(Good mobo for the price, can run crossfire in the future with a PCU upgrade)

Disc Drive $22
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Rosewill Case and 630 Rosewill PSU $105
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Refurbished WD Caviar Blue HDD $43
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Windsows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit OEM $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total $807

Refurb is *NEVER* Ok - sure it's discounted but there's no support for it.

That's just the bare minimum requirements - what you barely need to play D3. The system I posted will be able to run it on high or ultra high.
