So I was initially going to build a WHOLE new PC, but right now cash flow is tight and I was wondering if I can run Diablo 3 sufficiently enough to enjoy it. This is my old pc specs:
Processor AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5200+, dual core processor with AMD64 Technology
Each core operates at 2.6 GHz
2 × 1 MB L2 cache
2000 MHz system bus
Chipset NVIDIA® GeForce® 6150SE
Memory
Installed: 2048 MB DDR2, 533 MHz, (PC4200) dual channel memory (two 1024 MB DIMMs)
Expandable to: 4 GB (4 DDR2 DIMM slots)
Hard Drive 320 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA II hard drive
Video NVIDIA GeForce® 6150SE integrated graphics
Up to 128 MB of shared video memory
Power Supply 300 watt
One PCI Express ×16 (graphics interface)
One PCI Express ×1
Two PCI conventiona

I need to upgrade the VIDEO CARD, what should I get? Also, should I get 4 GIG RAM more? Please leave some links to the suggested upgrades. I prefer tigerdirect.com because I have a tigerdirect near my house where I can pick all this up! I'm in America, thanks!

A cheap video card like a HD6670 or HD7750 should do the trick.

Also try overclocking your CPU a bit.

I don't have the slightest clue on overclocking :/ 
Also I have PCIe no PCI 2.0 or 2.1, I think atleast. So the gpu you showed should do the trick, yes? Thanks

You can't add another 4GB as you're restricted to 4GB total.

The Radeon HD 7750 is a good idea since it draws very little power.

I don't want to spend that much on a GPU I won't use, I will be building a new pc soon. I'ma stick to that zotax one for $50
