hey guys im looking for a cheap card to play diablo 3, will this card work?
And is there a better card I can get for less then $100?
MSI R6570-MD2GD3/LP Radeon HD 6570 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
After looking at your specs, everything was looking fine... until the power supply. Most 6670's (and 6570's) require a ~400w power supply, so trying to use one of these cards in your system may encounter problems. 250w power supplies are primarily designed for simple home use such as web browsing and email and watching Youtube videos.
There is also another thing. Your computer is the slim version, specified by the "s" in Inspiron 530s. This means your are limited to low profile cards. It also means that there is probably not much room inside your case. Very often there will be something on the motherboard obstructing a double slot card (which is what the 6670 usually is). I would recommend opening your case and looking to see if the video cards would fit physically in your case (the dimensions are given in newegg under details).
It looks like you need a TFX12V power supply. Unfortunately, these are not aimed at gamers or enthusiasts and so the high wattage ones are hard to come by. I only found one 400W and that was the highest power rating I could find. Moreover, I have no idea if this specific one is any good.
When in doubt, look at the dimensions of the existing power supply and select one identical in spec. Skip up to 550W if you can to give you more options in the future, but I understand that price is important. Thankfully, Diablo 3 isn't nearly as resource intense as Battlefield 3. Your rig should be able to handle it with a slightly new GPU & and a new power supply
Here's a review from someone using it to play Diablo 3 with a 220w Gateway PSU:
"Pros: diablo 3 highest settings, working fine (so far) with stock 220w psu, not loud.
Other Thoughts: This was my first DIY computer upgrade attempt and it went rather smoothly as everthing is still in working order and Diablo III is being played on higest settings: the reason for my purchase.
Was concerned that my 220w psu is not even close to the suggested 400w psu the manufacturer recommends for running this card. After reading all the reviews I decided to risk it and after about 10 hours of gaming, so far, so good running on the 220w psu..."
