    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?ItemList=Combo.880742
    (Good budget CPU and nice budget RAM)

    Gigabyte 7850 $250
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125419
    (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=N82E16813157262
    (Good mobo for the price, can run crossfire in the future with a PCU upgrade)

    Disc Drive $22

    Rosewill Case and 630 Rosewill PSU $105

    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.
