Diablo3 PC build

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.

  1. Hi judius, please fill out the below information as it will greatly assist us with designing a build to suit your needs:

    Approximate Purchase Date: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better))

    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.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- 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

    Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)

    Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC)
  2. 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 http://gamingrig.blogspot.com/2012/05/diablo-3-gaming-pc.html for my build and possibly doing some minor upgrades if necessary.
