I have been dancing around with the idea of a new computer for diablo but decided I was going to put a down payment on a new motorcycle instead. Well over the weekend I wrecked my old motorcycle and came really close to having a fatal accident so I am going to take a break from that. Long story short, I am buying a new computer now instead! I already have OS and monitor, but everything else is up for grabs... here is what I was thinking (ordering through amazon, but will go with whatever deal is out there).

i2500k, $219
Cooler master hyper 212, $35
Seagate Barracude 7200 500gb, $80
Asus 24x DVD drive, $17
Corsair enthusiast 650W, $90
ASRock pro3 gen3, $105
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC 2gb ddr5, $270
Cooler Master Gladiator 600 MidTower, $60
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4), $60

TOTAL: $936

I want to get this gaming rig up and running by the time diablo hits! I do want to overclock eventually (nothing extreme, just to get the best performance). Later on I plan on upgrading to a SSD but its just not in my budget right now. Is this the best I can do for my budget, $900-1000? I plan on ordering this unit TONIGHT so please help! Thanks!

I believe you can find the 7850's for cheaper on Tigerdirect... Those are what im going for, however.. if you're only going 1 card, you may want to get something with a little more shove.. what monitor are you trying to run this on? Maybe we can help each other..

Lemme see what I can get for under $1000 for ya..

Diablo 3 is not going to be gpu demanding, a 7850 will get at least 100 fps @1080p

I have never really dealt with a gaming computer as I was playing on an old asus laptop for gaming that has a 260M I think in it. Will the 7850 OC version be enough for all my gaming needs?

Just saw this as I posted - glad to know I will be fine then! Is the gladiator 600 a good tower to go with, I have seen a lot of posts recommending HAF 912.
