HD 6670 DDR3 for diablo 3

Hi everyone, I am upgrading to a new computer to play D3, I have looked at some threads to decide which video card could max D3 at lowest budget.

According to the benchmark http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/diablo-iii-performance-benchmark,3195-5.html, the 6670 DDR3 managed average 42.6 FPS at 1680 x 1050, my native resolution is 1600 x 900 so I guess with this card it would be about 45 FPS average, is it good enough? (if not I may have to grind my teeth and spend extra bucks for the 6770)

For references, my specs are as followed:

CPU: AMD Athlon™ II X3-440 3.0Ghz / 95W / L2 3x512KB / Socket AM3

Motherboard: Biostar TA870U3+

Video: 6670 or 6770

RAM: Corsair 2GB DDR3 Bus 1333Mhz Value Select 2x2GB Cas 9-9-9-24

Harddrive: Western Caviar Green 1TB 7200Rpm, SATA3 6Gb/s, 64MB Cache

Power: Seasonic S12II 430 - 430W - Active PFC, 80PLUS®

Optical: DVD Rewrite Samsung 22X (IDE) SH-222A/BSBE Black

Any thoughts and ideas are greatly appreciated! ;)

  1. The problem is, the benchmark was done by just running around New Tristram. The real fps in large fights will be significantly lower.

    I'd suggest going for HD 6770: it has double performance. However, if you cannot spend just a little bit more for HD 6770, HD 6670 will work just fine.
  2. Yeah it sounds reasonable, at my place the 6770 is about $40 more than the 6670, but base on the performance I think its worth the extra $.

    This is my first time building a computer so does my rig look compatible? If yes then I will go right ahead.
  3. Oh so you don't have those parts yet? If so, I'd strongly advice going with intel instead of AMD. Their processors are way faster.

    Where are you from? If you tell me that and your budget perhaps I can make a build for you :).
  4. Thanks for your reply, I'm from Vietnam. The equivalent in price of the AMD over here is intel Pentium G850 2.9GHz which I think goes head to head with the X3 440.

    My budget is about $500, I already have monitor, mouse & keyboard. Thanks for your help :)
  5. Any online shops in your country from which I could check prices?
  6. Yeah but it's all Vietnamese and with prices in VND, I really appreciate your enthusiasm but I don't want to involve you with too much hassle.

    Regarding the Intel processor, I check some reviews and found it to be a bit better than the AMD 440. I definitely will get the 6770 :D
  7. It's not too much hassle at all. Just give me a link :)
  8. http://www.hanoicomputer.vn/linh-kien-may-tinh-c6.html

    IMO, this is the cheapest and largest supply of PC components in my city. Thanks a bunch!
  9. Hmm I seem to have found the pieces, however, I can't figure how to view my cart. Also, what's your budget in VND?
  10. My budget is 10.000.000 VND, did you use google translate in chrome with the website? Everything will be in English except the price. You can just tell me the components and I will add up the prices
  11. Any 6670's GDDR5?
  12. Best answer
    There you go, a build :):

    I am unable to look at this right now but will view this as soon as I get home!

    Been reading for hours for the best CPU build for D3 and this one's the closest I got! I'm from the PH.

    Thousand Thanks to Sunius for your help!
