mid range gpu for diablo 3

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
so im still torn on the gpu i gota get for my bros comp

i know what cards are better but its a bit hazy and i wana know whats the cheapest card here that you think will ABSOLUTELY work with d3. i also know that directx 11 is supported on a 5770 so thats a super bonus but i hear that gtx 260 is better then this card but thats what google tells me and google lies to me

i gota get a card below 100 and as low as possible pref

it has to be able to run games currently well on low settings

and i know this is impossible to predict but i want a safe bet to be able to run diablo 3

i was looking at

GTX 260
gts 450
5770
4850

i want to buy them off people here since its going to cost me less and the prices i see so far are at 100 or above and it HAS to be lower

seen a 5770 for 90 great deal but i wana go a tad less

saw a gtx for 70 so i wana focus on this. is a gtx 260 projected to hold up well for d3 when it comes out

We don't even know when Diablo 3 is coming out, and knowing Blizzard it isn't all that close. I'd at least wait for a release date before attempting to plan hardware around it.

SC2 is extremely CPU based. I could max the game with my 3870 on ultra (albiet at 1360x768).

As far as Diablo 3 hardware, nobody knows.
Out of that list I would choose 5770.

9800GTX+ will run it just fine (thats what some of the Blizz test computers are). I played d3 on highest current settings on a gtx460 and it ran flawlessly. I would say a 5770 should be fine for you, but since its not going to be out for a while, save up a little bit and get a better card.
