My System Specs

Default

It may be worth it to take the intel build, drop down to a 7850 and push the i3 up to either a 2500K or a 3570K, once you can afford a nice aftermarket cooler those would be great overclockers and provide much better performance. I have a 7850 overclocked to 1050/1300 and put bf3 up to Max and I get around 40fps, no problems with diablo3, always get 60, it's a great card, and yes it may be a little overpriced for now since it has no competition (jus like the 7870) but if you look around people are getting crazy overclocks with them and getting gtx580 performance from them. (also to note the performance between the i3 or the 8120 and the 2500k or 3570k may not be noticeable in gaming now)
