My System Specs

Default

I have to disagree with the 500w psu its far to small for most of todays gaming computing. You are pushing a PSU to it's max and I don't reccomend it. 700w min to provide "SOME" future proofing. What a waste it would be if he chose to upgrade his vid card and couldn't. Considering the price difference it's worthwhile to get something slightly bigger.

diablo 2 will probably need about the same horsepower as starcraft2. That said a 5770 can run SC2 easy enough.

6850+ and probably a 550ti+. Anything less and 8 player sc2 games start to lag so diablo would too considering the amount of action going on. I played a ton of diablo 2 and I remember some of the monster mashes.
