Hey everyone. Building a new rig mainly for gaming (D3). Just wanted to ask around and get a few suggestions. Will a 650watt power supply be enough or should I go higher? Any input on the parts is greatly appreciated. Pros/Cons of what I've picked?? Anything I'm missing? I was considering picking up a smaller SDD, will that be worth the extra investment or am I good with a standard hard drive? Thanks in advance!

Case - HAF 942
PSU - Antec 650w
RAM - 2x4gb g.skill ripjaws
Mobo - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
CPU - i5-2500k
HDD - western digital 500gb 7200rpm
GPU - EVGA GTX 560

i5-2500k + a gtx 560 can EASILY max out the game at 1080.

However you are spending a lot of money on a case. I would spend like $60 on a case (like the haf 912) and spend the extra $100 on the graphics card (like a 7850).

How many instances of the game do you plan on running simultaneously? I suspect your rig could handle at least 2x Diablo 3 at high quality and 1080p.

Honestly what pc do you have now? anything with a dual core + 6670 can almost max the game.

While Diablo 3 will not push the limits of the system you listed, you may want to consider a little less case and a little more graphics card, on the off chance that you decide to play a game that can stretch your system a little more. What you have now is a pretty unbalanced system: High end cpu with mid range gpu.

assuming your 560 was about 180-190 the haf 922 would put you in the $300 range, which is

Right now I'm on a junk replacement laptop that HP sent me for a class action settlement. Never again! Thanks everyone for the quick responses I think I am going to downgrade the case and upgrade the graphics card a little bit. Thanks again
