    @TheCrusader the Nephalem Valor which i was also under the impression (and i am sure a lot of people are) that it only worked at lvl 60 in inferno is incorrect
    in that written questioning thing a couple days ago it was posted here but i didnt see the comment where
    Jat willson said and i read it a couple time just make sure he stated that Nephalem Valor kicks in at lvl 60 regardless of difficulty
    not sure why they didnt put this part in on all those question/answers thing

    why must we remove Ambient Occlusion in the nvidia gameplay menu, under "3D" settings.??????

    and u also forgot to say do a full disk scan for errors and if u have an ATI dont install 12.4 catalist driver as they not supported with diablo stick to 12.3

    and set power option to high performance

    posted a message on Question about damage reduction.
    woops i answered this like a complicated idiot cannot see how to delete post but to answer it more simply

    ur damage reduction will alwasys be a % and not an actual figure
    now from ur defence value u will have a damage reduction % already

    now as ur damage reduction is always a % and the spell says it adds 20% damage reduction that will mean it will, well just add it
    so if u have 10% damage reduction it will just add 20% to = 30%

    there are to many variables to concider (obvious these figures are just for demonstration)

    but it could work as if u would have a defence values and ur damage reduction say is a 0.1% of what value ur defence value is so u would need 100,000 to = 100% damage reduction (but that doesnt mean they cannot say at a certain point in defence value it will only considers 0.05% of ur defence value as damage reduction){for example at 50,000+ it only considers 0.05% which would then need another 150,000 defence value so[1% x 50,000] [+ 0.05 x 100,000] = 100% damage reduction}

    the main question is if it takes the base defence and adds on % or if it just adds % to = new base and then add to the new base
    for example u have 1,000+50%= 1,500 +40% = 2,100 (1,000+40%= 1,400+50% = 2,100) works out same value both ways
    or [{1,000+50%}+{1,000+40%}] = 1,900 (but i think they will do the top 1 to = 2,100 )
    then as you have a defence value ur damage reducion would be a % of defence value

    but in the end there are way too many variable to consider so very hard to work out

    but to answer your question ur damage reduction i think will be a % of ur defence rating so then as u add 20% damage reduction it should just add the % to ur origonal %

    well mathematically say you have base of 100 and add 50% then it makes it 150....
    now u take another 50% which if it is on the 150 then thats 225 which is more then 100%

    but what i think is it will take the base of 100 x 50% = 50 + 100 = 150
    then adding another 50% it would take from base again so 100x50% which =50+other 50 +100base = 200
    i dont c how u get the 75% and not 100% if u working off a base

    your processor is fine and so is your ram your graphics card is a little low so as said above you will be on low settings.

    but just a few tips

    1. make sure you have all the latest drivers thats; windows, chipsets, g card, sound ect..... everything
    2. defrag your HDD and run a full disk error (the defrag = roughly 30min-1hour and disk error = 1hour-2hour depending on the size)
    3. when you playing the game just close out all nonessential background programs running (you shouldnt really need to, you got enough ram)

    4. most important is make sure your power managment is set to high performance very important this

    ( windows generally defaults to balanced performance but just go to control panel and power options to change if not on high performance).
