So I'm trying to save money but also build a computer that will play D3 at a high level... granted; i currently play on a 5 year old macbook so any kind of upgrade is going to look great to me haha... Here is a few hours of research and comparing prices got me and I just wanted to know if there were any glaring problems with the parts i've chosen or if you know of any cheaper parts that i could swap out. Let me reiterate that I know virtually nothing about computers so any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
2. Take the money you save there and get a GTX 560 ti. They're absurdly better for the extra 30~ bucks.
3. You don't need a heatsink, the CPU comes with it.
4. The FX-4100 is now in line with the Intel counterparts due to recent price drops. However, you have a very limited path to upgrade if you decide you want more performance. In the higher end of the spectrum, Intel's Sandy Bridge line outperforms Bulldozer quite a bit. If you want to go with Intel for that reason, have a look at the i3 2120.
Thanks a lot for the help! Just one question... when you say i have a very limited path to upgrade what exactly do you mean by that? How will the build affect me switching out CPUs somewhere down the line? Thanks again.
