Hi all, im pretty new on buying/ replacing video cards/ psu and just wondering what would be a good one for my computer to play diablo 3


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Tomorrow or the the day after BUDGET: is 100$ to 200$ for both video card/psu together

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Mostly gaming, just installed diablo 3 and was sad to know my video card is crap =(

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: is GPU the video card?(sorry if its a dumb question) but if it is i have the Intel GMA x4500 integrated

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Make: Gateway dx4820, processor : intel core 2 quad processor q8300, Memory: 6gb ddr3 and the monitor i have right now has a 1920x1080 60 hz resolution

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: im not really sure where to buy it but ive looked thru the forums and saw the newegg.com website. are they a legit place to buy?

PARTS PREFERENCES: dont really know, as have said im pretty new

OVERCLOCKING: not sure CROSSFIRE: not sure

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Must play the newer games and ofc Diablo 3. and Thank you for the help it is greatly appreciated.

You could go with either a GTX 460 Superclocked or a GTX 560 Superclocked.

GTX 460: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GTX 560: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I picked the superclocked versions because they are the same price as the normal versions.

The performance of these cards is somewhat like this: 460<6850<560.

IMO, go with the GTX 560, but you will be going over your budget by $10.
