Just because I like building rigs, here you go: (My version biggrin.gif)
Mobo: ECS H61H2-M2(1.0) $15 after mir and $10 promo - code: ECS521
CPU: Celeron G530 $50
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" $60 with promo code: EMCNEHA23
Case: Coolermaster RC430 $33 shipped with promo: FREESHIP
Psu: Corsair CX430 $30.50 after mir and promo code: CorsairPSU10
RAM: Team Elite 2x2gb kit $22
OS: Win7 64bit $80
Total before GPU and with $40 in mir is $290.50 shipped.
Insert your favorite $200 gpu thumb.gif
or you can swap the G530 for a G850 and get a $175 gpu.
You won't see a difference in games between the two cpus most likely (at most only a couple fps). The gpu will be doing most of the work.
My recommendations for gpu:
6870 or 560ti

And what would the TOTAL price be including the OS.
Say MY Limit price dropped to $465 Is that do able? I've seen the 7750 be used for the game and it just looks flawless.is the 6870 worth the extra $ and be noticeable? I believe i can pick up the 7750 for $105
I hate waiting for shipping i wish i could find all these parts locally lol.
I tried searching frys.com because i have one about 40 miles from my area but they just don't carry AS much PC stuff as they used too.

You could build it decently at Fry's but would pay more. Don't forget, they price match to newegg. (not the promo codes or mirs though).

My build with a G850 and 1gb xfx 6870 would be $477 after mir (note that the totals for mir after adding the xfx 6870 is now $70). This is more than most people want to do in mir as it is still $70 added to the total build at time of purchase ($547 total purchase price).
It's so little!

Very true I do know that they offer price match but it would'nt be worth it.
I'll just go ahead and just order most if not all parts online.

I just may go with the 7770.


If i do go with this setup lol so many choices.

Would it be sufficient enough to play the game at an acceptable frame rate. I mean like i said i only want/need to run Medium-Low performance.

And in the future if i want just go ahead and upgrade to the 6870 off of this build in the future when i'm not so strapped on bills.
and if i could upgrade to the 6870 would i have to upgrade anything else?

Again thank you all for taking the time to help me through this.

P.S. would the 7750 be better than the 7770 i found the 7750 for also around $107

A 7770 is almost the same as a Radeon 6850, and both will run D3 on max everything.

you can fin a 7770 for $109-$120 http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=68528&vpn=FX777AZNF4&manufacture=XFX
Performance per dollar wise its very illogical to get a 7750 for $107.


However to answer your question. yes a 7750 would handle D3, but i wouldn't recommend it

So if i just use this setup:



CPU: Intel Pentium G630 2.7GHz Dual-Core Processor ($68.99 @ Mac Mall)
Motherboard: MSI H61M-P21 (B3) Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($50.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Samsung 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($24.99 @ Microcenter)
Hard Drive: Hitachi Deskstar 320GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($47.66 @ Compuvest)
Video Card: VisionTek Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card ($105.24 @ Amazon)
Case: Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($39.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: Antec 350W ATX12V Power Supply ($29.74 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $385.59


But instead of using the 7750 and replacing it with the 7770 it would work just fine.

also here is a video pretty much showing the 7770 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8Ue1IoYRYE

And here is a video of how my system runs vs the 7750 which is what i'm trying to accomplish. so i mean if the setup above is what i'm looking for then wouldn't that work?

like i said you can go ahead and get a 7750 and it will work just fine. but it would be wiser to pay $2 more to get a potentially 25%+ more performance.
The 7750 has 8 compute units (512 Stream Processors) and is clocked at 800mhz. whereas the 7770 has 10 Compute units (640 Stream Processors) and is clocked at 1000 mhz.

Either way will work with the setup above.

Good luck

Something along the lines of:

- Core i3 2120 ($109)
- 4GB DDR3 ($35)
- 500W PSU ($40)
- Radeon 5770/6770 ($100 )

is what I would shoot for.
