OK so I'm looking at buying a new computer, I don't have a vast knowledge base on computer specs only what I have been able to pick up from scouring over newegg and other sources for the past 2 weeks. Anyways I am looking at this comp http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and was wondering if the HD 7750 would work on this because it only has a 300W PSU. Budget-wise I don't really want to upgrade the graphics cards to the point where I have to buy a new big PSU, but I probably will in the future.

Now I'm basically going to be using this comp to play Diablo 3 (for now). Any other cards that will work as well are welcome for suggestion.

That computer is pretty bad. I wouldn't buy it. Let me find you a better deal :) .

How about this build? It will have way better gaming performance (intel CPU, 8 GB 1600 MHz RAM), has quality power supply inside (corsair 430 watt) and graphics card too (which is way better than HD 7750).

Well that definitely looks way better than what I was going to get. Now what would you say about getting that XFX card with two fans for $20 more? Does it really matter and from what I have read the 6870 suggests a 500W PSU so does that matter?

The suggestions are usually placed higher because of low quality power supplies. Corsair is a quality unit, which can deliver stable wattage even if it comes to its maximum output. It has 80 plus certification too. However, if you want, you can take CX 500 power supply instead of CX 430 - it shouldn't be much more expensive.

Sure, it's always worth going for higher end graphics card - the question is if it fits your budget.
