Diablo III Beta System Requirements

    Quote from instant___

    Weird to see them only using DX9, but I suppose they do not really need any features from 10/11. At least it wont be 3dfx like D2 :-)

    At least this way I can play it on my old computer whenever it gets released, or even buy something new (that has then become old again).


    or it is a question of efficiency and or money or hdd space requirements. i think theres alot more work involved trying to match D3 for the dx10/11 standard and also it requires more hdd space. seeing how d3 allready is taking around 12 gb (+ more for the future addons) but who knows, maybe they will add support for it later on weve seen it happen to other games). i really wouldnt mind playing D3 with dx11 tesselation.

    Have played this at a mates place on his PC and laptop and PC runs it flawlessly.

    The laptop unfortunately stutters around A LOT and is un playable, it is only 12 months old too. Alienware M11X we spent about an hour and a half getting new drivers and tweaking with settings and no go.

    But the PC has a 6950 in it and 8GB and looks awesome on his 30", must look at getting one of those monitors for myself too before launch...

    but thats the case with all laptops, theres nothing to worry about. laptops just arent good for gaming (unless you play dos games or windows hearts etc).

    Personally i think 30" inch is way too big, optimal is 23-24" for me.

    well i dont really have an up to date PC, but diablo beta plays really really smooth, which is according to blueposts inteded.
    the framerate doesnt seem to be a problem - no breaking in at "big fights" or anything maybe know from wow (like 25m raiding).
    the loading screens are really really short for a new game - even with my pc, that's struggling with extremely long loading times.
    overall the beta has a really smooth feeling :)
    so dont worry

    I bought a new PC also for Di3 , and was slightly surprised on low sys req ( i know its Blizz ) , my old PC could run Di3 on max .... :(
    Well atleast i can run all new games now =) My only concern now is internet , altrough i have a good connection ... but i have memories of Di2 HC wipes couse of lag.

    Even though the specs are low I'll be buying a new rig soon. I've been really wanted to put in a new processor and some better ram but with that comes a new mobo so at that point I'll just put together a whole new rig and use this as a data server or something. I'll probably keep the card since it's mostly fine (GTX 460) and throw in my old card (9800 GTX+) to use it as the server.
  • #234
    my vedio card is 9800GTX+, I think I can run D3 ok, but looking into better quality, i may have to update my computer before it releases.

    also a new monitor would be good! My GF was asking me what I want for my birthday gift, here is the conversation:

    her: what you want for you birthday honey?
    me: r u serious?
    her: sure!
    me: Can I have a D3 Beta Key?
    her: What is it?
    me: google it!
    her: anything else instead?
    me: a new computer?
    her: My boss is here, i got go......

    3 hours later....

    Honey, log on Diablofans.com and post! happy birthday!!!!

    Guys, how lucky am I?

    anything else?

    i really hope so. :) think im gonna buy starcraft in the meantime. they canceled blizzcon in 2012 because they wanna work with diablo 3? i guess it wont make it till Q2 so i might aswell just play some starcraft to decrease the change of getting insane with this wait.

    I will be able to run this game at max no problem because I built my own computer back in october with a gtx 570, i7, etc. Anyways for people who do not have a computer to run this my reccomendation would be to build your own computer, and if cost is a problem (as it was for me) just lower the graphics card to a gtx 460 ($159.99 at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B005HU02EM/ref=nosim/7240466-rg2304-00-20?s=merchant&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER) or for the lower end of the spectrum you could always still run the game with an ASUS gt 430 ($55.99 at Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121471&nm_mc=OTC-Channel&cm_mmc=OTC-channel-_-Video Cards-_-ASUS-_-14121471&srccode=cii_7240466&cpncode=32-7962798&DEPA=0&refer=channel&CMP=OTC-). Whichever card or processor you choose, you will be able to run the game decently, but not at max settings. The reccomended specs for this game requires a GeForce 260, which you cannot even buy anymore its so old. I am glad the way they designed this game because it makes it so pretty much anyone with a computer with an okay graphics card (and everything else above) can run the game. However, if you are thinking of building your own computer, I highly reccomend it. This was my first time build and my only advice is to do a lot of research before buying the parts and especially before installing them. See you all in game! ^^

    And as a reply to Willow, those specs are more then enough needed to play d3 and moderately high settings. In fact, you could probably even max the game, but everyone shall see once diablo 3 is released. But that build is great. My ONLY suggestion is do not go with the 500gb seagate barracuda. First off, 500gb is plenty but if you do a lot of video editing or photo editing it will quickly fill. Secondly, seagate does not make very reliable Harddrives. Go with this instead (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western Digital - Caviar Black 1TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive for Desktops/8909595.p?id=1213047091732&skuId=8909595&st=Western Digital Caviar Black&cp=1&lp=1). Western Digital makes very nice Hard Drives and on top of that they are faster in my opinion and more reliable. 149.99 is a little pricy considering it was only 100 when I bought it in October, but you might be able to get it cheaper from Newegg. Also, definately keep with the SSD, your boot times on the computer will be almost nothing. With my SSD, Windows 7 boots within less than 10 seconds.

    Yes, a new system with minimum 1 GB memory and 8 GB SDRAM and latest CPU is good.

    But let's not forget that there are 3 other factors that greatly affect game play.

    1) Your rig must be cool. So effective use of fans/coolers is a must. Do Not be cheap here!
    2) Your rig must have proper voltage. So buy a quality UPS with Voltage Regulation.
    (even if the voltage drops from nominal 120v to below 100v the Voltage Regulator transformer will provide you with steady 120v.
    3)It might be the correct time to call your phone/DSL provider and have them clean up your service panel connection.
    (all copper connections degrade over time with adverse weather like rain, snow and heat.)
    Verizon answered my complaint in 3 days, and improved my DSL speed for free.

    These 3 needed items make a big difference. Hope this helps someone.

    Can anyone post some recorded frame rates with fraps? I'm interested to see how current video cards perform. Is the graphics engine done yet?
