Diablo3 PC build

Last response: in Systems

Hello all, I'm very new to building PC's and it seems like it's definitely the best way to go in terms of getting your money's worth.

I'm having a hard time coming up with a good build for Diablo 3 with my lack of computer knowledge. I'm looking to build a computer in the 500-650 price range that is only for gaming.

I'm leaning towards intel since AMD seems to have a lot of issues with Blizzard games. Any help on a build for running D3 on high settings for this price range would be much appreciated.

Budget Range: 500-600

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies)

Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using**

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.:, -- to show us selection & pricing)

Country: (e.g.: India) we need to know where these parts are being assembled

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case)

Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe

Purchase Date: As soon as possible.

System usage from most important to least: (Gaming and web browsing, mostly gaming)

Parts not required: keyboard, mouse, OS, speakers.

Country: US

Parts preferences: Only preference I have since I haven't bought a desktop in years would be Intel since they seem to run better with Blizzard games

Overclocking: No (unsure, new to overclocking)

SLI or Crossfire: No (unsure, new to this as well)

Monitor: Still need to pickup a good monitor for an extra 100-150

Main priority is running games on highest settings possible and as smooth as possible, specifically Diablo3.

I was looking at for my build and possibly doing some minor upgrades if necessary.
