Hello guys, this is my first time on this forum. It would be great if you guys could help me out here.

I'm wanting to buy a gaming desktop that can handle diablo 3 at max settings.

Would this computer be a good buy?

Yes it would BUT. That thing is INSANELY overpriced. Seriously, offer the guy 250bucks take it or leave it, that guy is smoking crack.

Also, I'm pretty sure most manufacturers dont honor 2nd hand warranties.

EDIT:

I did some research for it:

XFX-
Quote:
Limited hardware warranties for Graphics Cards may be transferred if the new owner registers online at http://www.xfxforce.com/ within 90 days of the transfer using the same Registration ID as the original owner. This new owner registration process is a condition precedent to transferring the limited hardware warranty for Graphics Cards. The duration of the new owner’s limited hardware warranty will be limited to the duration of the original owner’s limited hardware warranty. If the original owner has a warranty for the duration of its life, the new owner’s life shall become the measuring life that determines the duration of the warranty.


You're in luck there. But again the guy is asking way too much money.

Corsair provides a non-transferable warranty to the purchaser of Corsair hardware product purchased from an authorized Corsair reseller.

Get the idea? I really don't want to go thru all of them, but just to give you a heads up. You could build a system like mine for that kind of money and get way better performance.

Glad to see all of the Diablo 3 people on the forums lately! But I have to say, very simply, do not buy this! Save some cash if possible and get something else - whether you order your own parts or buy something else.

What class you gonna roll?

I have edited this post so that it's a bit clearer. Someone sent an alert because they were confused about what was going on.
