    You should be able to run it, reminds me of wow when I think about it. You can run it on very low specs but to get to really good settings you needed a god PC.
    It's been, what 7 years, and I still can't run WoW perfectly :(

    I presume that something like that will be with D3

    Thanks very much! Whilst id love to be able to run it all on top settings, il just be happy to have it running and putting as many hours into it as I did into D2 :D

    Hm, it appears my quoting went slightly wrong there.

    This post was awesome. Very informative. Not just in terms of Diablo 3, but in general. I had no idea about the PassMark site and will be referencing it a lot in the future. Thanks!

    I expected more demanding performances but everything went better than expected! :)

    Well sadly when I got into the Beta, My computer just could not handle it. I had no dedicated graphics card and shotty RAM.
    I will say that with the Beta on low settings it was still "playable" but definately could not handle MultiPlayer and would lag in intense fights. It killed me twice before I logged off and bought a new rig.

    My new computer is set to Arrive on March 1st, I tried to go above and Beyond the Specs just to make sure I had no issues for awhile.....
    My New Rig....

    AMD FX-4170 4.2Ghz Processor
    ATI Radeon HD 6870 Ice Q Turbo 1Ghz GPU x2
    16Gig Corsair RAM
    120Gig Solid State Drive
    2 TB Data Drive

    Some various other bells and whistles, but the core of the Rig should be able to handle the game just fine.

    Summary, The minimum specs are close, it is "playable" with less but not recommended at all if you want an enjoyable experience.
    And my suggestion, with the Release creeping ever closer.... Now is the time to make those crucial upgrades if your system is lacking.
    Good Luck all, And Happy Demon SLAYING!!

    Yes, it should have no problems :).

    Your max resolution depends on your screen though.

    You soldered an extra 3 GB Vram to your card ? imba !

    Edit : I was hoping for immense requirements so the game would actually be a huge graphical boost in comparison to Blizz' other work.

    I'm really hyped and all for the game, but I doubt that my PC will be able to run the game. I was thinking of buying the collector's edition & stuff, and I really want to know if I'll be able to run the game at least decently.

    Video card :
    Radeon HD 5570 with the score of 758
    CPU :
    Intel Pentium D 2.66GHz with the score of 672

    Am I right in saying that i won't be able to play the game at all ? (1280x1024 resolution)

    ( I also have 3 GB of RAM memory )

    Future friends, what about this

    ****2nd Generation Intel Core i5-2450M Processor 2.50GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 3.1GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), 14" HD Widescreen CineCrystal LCD Display, Intel HM65 Express Chipset, 4096MB DDR3 Memory, NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with NVIDIA Optimus technology***
    I accidently got quite a bit of liqour on my old laptop last night, was looking to upgrade as well. I dont have much cash to spare and this spec is just in my price range...will the VID CARD do ok? I dont care about max settings, med settings is fine, as long as I have decent FPS and NO LAG i'm a happy camper.

    I have a question. I did see a Amd Radeon HD 6370M on the list, does anyone know if that will work for a the same number accept a D on the end? cause thats what I have -__- I sure as hell hope it does, I dont have money to go out and buy a new video card

    You'll be able to play on medium to high, high might lag a little I predict

    I would say on high settings, not on ultra or another higher tier setting.

    Depending on your other pc specs, you'll be able to play on medium to high with that gpu

    very worried about my gpu..radeon hd 4200 will it run on low while still keeping everything fairly smooth and playable?

    I have a question regarding HDD's, and instead of creating a whole thread for it I thought it would be better to just post it in here. I'm currently in need of a new Hard-drive for my PC and was wondering if anyone knew of any good ones with nice RPM and internal/external transfer rates within a price range of 100$-250$.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. :)

    Thanks in advance!
