I would think so. I built my PC 3 years ago and it play D3 perfectly.

the weak spot is the graphics card, which is typical, but still should be fine. you can always upgrade later on...

I bet it would play Diablo 3. Last I checked the requirements are very low for D3. (2 gigs of RAM, a video that is five generations old, a 2.4ghz dual core CPU). The big issues you will with that system is that A). it is a cheap desktop made by HP which basically means that everything in it (aside from the CPU) will most likely be of the lowest quality possible (we are talking RAM that doesnt even have a brand name on it, HDDs made by Daihatsu or something, a Mobo that has everything spelled in chinese etc.) Also - 90 day warranty is garbage. If you custom designed that computer you could get everything with several years of warranty.

It also has a 300watt PSU, so, the video card is obviously onboard and you wont have any space for OCing that sexy core i5 or the video card when they start becoming too weak to play games.

Finally - I would not be surprised if the DDR3 RAM is 1066.

IMO, pay out an extra couple hundred $$$ and custom build a system that will perform well, wont break, and last for years.

my laptop has better specs than that thing. At $600 AND REFURBISHED HP? I'd pass.

Thanks for the update, I pulled the trigger last night so lets see how this will go

Ahh, I didnt even see that it was refurbished... Thats pretty weak. I am confidant that you could build a system with equal or better specs than that brand new for the same price. Hell, if you live around northern CT, I would suggest returning it, claiming it was damaged and just get your money back, then send me a PM and I will build a system for you.

I could sort of understand the 600$ IF it were brand new, but it doesnt even have full fledged video card...

Consider this build:

CPU: i5 2500k sandy bridge
RAM: 16 gigs of Mushkin enhanced blackline @1600
GPU: 2 gig radeon 7850 asus
HDD: 640gig western digital
SSD: 120 gig OCZ vertex
Mobo: made by ASUS
Case: antec 900
PSU: PC Power and Cooling Silencer - 750 watt (has a 7 year replacement warranty!!!)
ASUS wireless n 300mb/s adapter

This build cost only a couple hundred dollars more, and significantly superior to that HP in literally every possible way, and everything in it is made to a very very high standard (these brands - asus, mushkin, western digital, PC power and cooling, are some of the best brands on the market).

I do not mean to bash your purchase or make you feel bad, but I am trying to stress that it would be very possible to get a much better system for a similar price. I just dont like people losing money or getting screwed by big companies like HP. If you can get your money back for this computer and custom build a system, I would highly recommend it.

Thanks for helping on this, I myself are not a picky person, I really use this for minor video editing from time to time, d3, web surfing, streaming and porn, if that does the job and it's hassle free, I'm gonna go with it, really appreciate the help! Thanks again!!
