Hello everybody. I am wanting to build my own PC to be able to play Diablo 3 on medium-high settings. Also to play other games of course.
I was wondering if anybody could help me review this build and make sure everything is compatible with one another. I don't need any other parts for my PC other than what I have already picked (i.e., i didn't list an optical drive because I already have one here at home I could use).
If there's anyway you could help me choose other parts that are cheaper and just as good, that would be nice.
I used the site PCPartPicker.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black 3.3GHz Dual-Core
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 54.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing
Motherboard: ECS A885GM-A2 (V1.1) ATX AM3
Memory: G.Skill Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 3.5" 5400RPM
I am not a big fan of suggesting graphics cards based on the resolution to be used.
For the most part, I suggest people just get the best video card they can get for the money they have available and let the resolution stuff sort itself out later.
For larger monitors or for multiple monitor setups it helps to err on the side of more RAM on the video card if different models are available with more or less RAM, but that is about as far as I would go in that line of thinking.
The 6770 is a good budget card, nothing for the same price beats it. The next step up costs like 50% more. Whatever you are playing there is nothing that will do a whole lot better for the same initial outlay that a 6770 requires.
