Need new Diablo 3 High/Max settings GPU

Recommended Posts

Bad month I had. :(

 

First, I had to replace my new antec 620c with antec becaus it had a bad capactior

 

Next, I just got asus 5450 for $29.99 - $20 rebate but I F*cked up on the rebate!! :mad:

 

I sent in the wrong invoice/recipt from the antecPSU arGGH!!!1! :bang head

 

Then, my registry got corrupt by windows 7 manager registry cleaner and had to a fresh install... :bang head:mad::bang head:mad:

 

Well already got antec to send me a new unit last week and it's coming today.

 

also, i'm consdiering returning the video card to amazon and get whatever money I can get back....not sure how much money i would lose form the restocking fee but $30 seems a lot for a super low end card. i already knew that before I bought it because i wasn't intending on playing video games but i totally forgot about Dialbo 3 was coming out this year.

 

you can see my setup below in my sig but i want a card that meets three requirements please

 

1. is supported by 620W antec NEO ECO PSU

 

2. my budget is around $100-$200.

 

3. plays D3 on HIGH (or possibly even maximum) settings

 

4. Do I need to overclock?

 

5. Do I need an aftermarket cooler?

 

anyways here's a video list i put together for ya. there's plenty to choose from and if you know the answer you probably don't need the list anyway because you've probably done your research already. so i'm here to leech off your work heheh

 

but i honestly i dont' know which one has the best price / performance ratio.

yay! I decided to get a dual fan 560 TI 448 for under $200. i prolly overkill for d3 but i may wish to play other games in case.

 

i'm gonna oc the hell out of the frozr hehe no pun intended

 

i wonder how the oc would compare and if my psu has enough juice for it.

I have heard that this card cools the GPU pretty well but it dumps hot air back into the case.

 

Would a PCI Slot Cooler be a good solution for this?

As long as you have decent flow through your case you should be fine. :)

I believe I have good airflow in my case. When I get a chance can I post a pic of my case to show you? I just want to be sure because I don't know much about the physics of airflow dynamics, etc. It would be nice to have a second or third opinion.
