Upgrading PC to run Diablo 3

Upgrading PC to run Diablo 3
My current PC:
Windows Vista Home SP1
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+
3GB RAM
130GB Harddrive
Diamond Radeon X1550

My PC is from dell, its a Dimension E521 (I know its due for a major upgrade but im short on cash and just wanted something temporary that will run D3)

I recently bought ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card. Hopefully that would be enough for D3 to run.
I'm concerned that my current power supply will not be enough, its only 250watt.
Will I also need to install a new fan to keep the video card cool? I don't want new video card to overheat and fry :/

Will Diablo 3 run on this PC w/ the Radeon HD 5450 video card?

RE: Upgrading PC to run Diablo 3
Your video card will run the game at very low frame rates, possibly playable. Someparts, probably won't be playable. However, the biggest issue here is your processor. At a first glance, I believe its simply not powerful enough.

RE: Upgrading PC to run Diablo 3
I run a powercolor 5450 and from experience its fanless so it will endure a little bit more heat so I wouldnt worry about the heat issue it is safe if its less than 100 degrees C and on the psu I run mine perfectly on a 220w psu never had a problem with it yet. Diablo 3 more than likely will run but with low performance if you lower everthing to minimum you should be fine.
