Ok here we go again, if your going to be the best magic find you can be heres the suggested gear:

gloves - chance gaurds chain gloves(range 25-40 mf)
boots - war travelers battle boots(range 30-50 mf)
belt - goldwrap heavy belt (30 mf)
rings - nagel (15-30 mf)
armor - skullders ire russet armor (1.25 mf per char lvl) also provicdes 1 to all skills
helm - harlequin crest shako (50 mf) also provicdes 2 to all skills
weapon - oculus swirling crystal (50 mf) also provicdes 3 to sorc skills
shield - rhyme (runeword shael+eth, 2 socket shield 25mf)
or splendor (runeword eth+lum, 2 socket shield 20mf) also proivdes 1 to all skills
or lidless wall grim shield (no mf but can be socketed with ist rune)
amulet - your just going to have to find something on this one, there are no specific magic find amulets, if you get lucky you can find a 2 to sorc skills with magic find rare or crafted amulet, most of the time though you will have to choose between having extra skill points for killing power or extra magic find

Obviously higher magic find items that have ranges like chancies and war travs are higher price. Chancies are fairly cheap, the most expensive thing in this set up is probably the boots.

Socket your helmet and armor with a ptopaz for an additional 24 mf each. If you want to be top of the line an ist rune gives 30 mf in weapons 25 mf in everything else and you can socket that in your weapon and shield.

Other alternatives for a weapon would be either a dual isted alibaba tulwar (1 mf per lvl) plus the 60 mf from the ists, or a 6 socket weapon filled with ists (expensive) (180mf) total.

The only issue with magic find sorcs is that you sometimes have to balance out magic find with extra skill points, the alternative weapons allow for more magic find but you lose the 3 to sorc skills that you would get from the occulus. Worst case if you cant get a hold of the helm and armor you could always get a 3 sock helm and 4 sock armor and put ptopaz in it but there would be no additional bonuses other than mf in that case.

Well thats what you get for having played for a couple years on and off, you know the best setups but it doesn't necessarily mean you can afford to make them, haha. Just don't ask me what the best set up is for an auraradin, those palidins are way to expensive and complex, they have guides for those builds its sad.

Well in that case here is a very detailed guide depicting a holy shock/holy fire auraradin used for PvM.

http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=550647

That build involves using dragon armor and the hand of justice weapon which give stacked holy fire (total level 30). It also uses dream helm and dream shield giving stacked holy shock (total level 30).

Another way to do it is to forgo the dream shield and use a another dragon (the shield variation) to have a total of lvl 44 holy fire. These are usually refered to as torchadins rather than auradins though. The only problem with this way is that most hell monsters are fire immune so it makes it difficult.

Are they actually able to kill things in hell?

They actually aren't that bad, mainly because they use conviction as their main aurora to break the resistances of most monsters. Since a maxed out conviction provides 150% lower resists (can't get any higher) it usually doubles the damage you do, as long as your weapon (the hand of justice) is in a fairly decent weapon the stats are actually pretty decent. Just make sure you have something that has life tap on it or a good amount of life leach to stay alive. The life tap can be provided by a pair of gloves called Draculs grasp and is actually recomended in that guide. The choice you have to make is between using Zeal, or vengance. Zeal will get you multiple hits, but vengance will make good use of the multiple synergies used by holy fire and holy shock so it would be very easy to stack high amounts of damage. The only monsters you will have difficulty against will be those who are fire and lightning immune since the pulse damage will actually heal them and the conviction most likely will not be able to break one or both of the immunities (conviction is 1/5th as effective against immune monsters). Your weapon will still be doing a portion of physical as well as cold damage (if using vengance) so it will just take longer rather than being impossible.
