it's not very stressful on a computer you can max out the game at 1080p with a Radeon 6670. The radeon 6670 also doesn't use much power, 58 watts at the absolute max. It's also the most powerful GFX card you can buy without needing an external power cable.

Sooooo you could cram that card into a prebuilt machine and game away happy.

the 6670 ddr3 video cards require a 400w psu, so i recommend the 6570 just to be safe

also they have low profile versions

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814102934

something like that. look for a quad core AMD 3.0+ghz, or an i5 intel, 3.0ghz or better, with ddr3 ram and junk n stuff

do you need a monitor too?

the pc is acer, which is better than dell, hp, or compaq, but not as good as asus, lenova or gateway prebuilts

i'd have no problem buying an acer myself if i were looking for a cheap gaming rig

My work laptop is a Dell Latitude E6410 (just a year and a half old with an i7 and an Nvidia 3100M), and it can't hack it. I play it on my 4 year old iMac at home with no problem. Dell blows monkey balls.

A big monitor is key for any Blizz game...makes them so much more fun. But yeah, D3 doesn't require an overpriced rig honestly.

Make sure you get 3 way SLI/Crossfire if you want the run it at the minimum of 30FPS.

3 way exactly, and at least 8 MB of ram is a must.

total wattage doesn't determine how well a psu will handle a graphics card. Considering how crappy a lot of prebuilt PSU's can be i doubt the 6570 would take a load of his mind as well. A lot of pre-built psu's barely go over 250W and I doubt the recommended psu for the 6570 is that low

the 6570 will not use significantly less power under load from what I've read. In fact it uses more.

a 6570 in that small case will be hot and noisy. The pre-built route overall is a series of unsatisfying compromises.

If you're not nerdy enough yourself just find a nerdier friend to build a pc for you.
