Will this card play Diablo 3 okay?

I'm not a graphics supremacist, but I would like to play Diablo 3, and the integrated graphics card on the Motherboard isn't compatible. This computer is rather old compared to todays standards, but I checked System Req. Labs, and it says it can run if I changed the graphics card.

This is the one I might purchase: HIS H545H1GD1 Radeon HD 5450 Silence 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Video Card with Eyefinity

My question is this: Will this let me play Diablo 3 or no?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, but not well. That's the lowest of the low-end cards and not really worth any price.

Could you recommend me a card that would work? This computer has 2 PCI-e X1 ports.

Not the ravishing kind, but good enough for me.

Im warning you. If you liked diablo 2 do not get Diablo 3.

But thats just my opinion (and many others), you can choose to ignore us, but you will only have yourself to blame.

Diablo 3 is already boring... Such a disappointment.

With that card you can probably play it on mid comfortably. High settings will run fine until lots of stuff starts happening on screen. You have to ask yourself, how important is frames per second to you. If you need 60 frames, upgrade, if you want it to just be playable and run smooth and you don't care about max fps or max graphics, that card is just fine.

Blame for what? D3 is still a very enjoyable game, and a fantastic game in general. If by "us" you mean the vocal minority of whiners, why would anyone take you seriously? You exist for every title known to mankind

Again, why would anyone listen to you? I'm not going to ramble on about how I'm not a fanboy, but the game is well made and very enjoyable.

Why not get a 6750 or 6770? Those will play most modern games on medium at least.
