    I also agree with everything Jaetch had to say. In addition to that i'm on here checking the forums so often it at least gives me something new to read/pass the time.

    Without all of these topics it would be entirely too quite around here between patches and relevant new info.

    I read them with a grain of salt but i do read them don't mind that they pop up so often.

    This is awesome and i'm finding it very useful.

    I do have one suggestion that would help me. I would like the option to manually start recording each run instead of recording all the dead time between. I'm not always grinding each run one right after the other but would like the chart to keep growing as if i were.

    Didn't want to start a new thread for my own gearing question...

    I can easily TR MP0 but would like to make it even easier or be able to TR on MP1.
    I have 50m-75m to spend and would like tips on the most impactful, one item, i should get.

    I know the boots are a little weak, but that was the easiest place to pick up some +health globe and +pickup radius since none of my other items have either of those.

    As Verity already pointed out, computers less than two years old should be able to run it fine (as long as they're marketed as gaming computers, if not then they're likely to not have a dedicated gfx card). What's your computer specifications by the way? I was wondering since you said it's 6 months old but also that you'd do whatever it takes to play D3 at release. I'm assuming that if it doesn't meet the requirements, you'll just need to switch (or add) a piece of hardware, likely the gfx card.

    Well...i saw a good deal on an HP slimline; not realizing the upgradability limitations at the time. But...

    AMD Athlon II X2 250 Processor 3.00 GHz
    3.00 GB RAM
    Integrated ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics (not important enough to list on the system info page)

    "whatever it takes" might mean a new box and power supply since my six month old purchase was a horrible one.

    I can't help but to feel that i turned this thread into a "will my computer support this game topic".

    --sorry

    Interesting. I was under the impression that everyone thought a gfx card was essential for gaming. You're correct about casual gamers wanting to play this game, but surely even they must know that graphics integrated with the motherboard yields horrible performance? I am not trying to pick on you, I'm simply asking because I think our views on casual gamers differs quite a bit.

    ...So, how did you come up with that nickname of yours? :)

    I'm casual in the sense that I grew up with warcraft 1-3 and diablo 1 and loved playing those games. I was about 12 and didn't know a thing about computers. Years down the road i hear blizzard is going to release the next of the warcraft series so i purchase on day 1 and become addicted for 2 years not even knowing was an mmo was at the time. I used my computer that i had bought for college which was mediocre when i got it a year and a half earlier. It suited my needs for the duration.

    I bought a new computer six months ago and i'm realizing new, does not equal, "i don't even have to look at the games requirements" like it used to for me.

    I'm a very casual pc gamer but i will do whatever it takes to play diablo 3 at release. All of my friends play console games but also have store bought, less than 2 year old computers. Convincing them to buy and try out the game would be easy but their computers won't cut it.

    ...best mile time :)

    Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800 GT or ATI Radeon™ X1950 Pro or better

    When referring to minimum i would assume these specs would be needed to run the game at 800x600 and every setting on low.

    While I do understand that pretty much everyone reading this will have way better systems than these minimums, it seems weird to me that having a dedicated GPU is pretty much a requirement if you even want to play pc games now.

    I feel as though i must be mistaken in my thinking seeing that most people purchasing the game will be casual and not even know what a video card is. Especially since it should run fine on older systems. Does that refer to older gaming systems that most here have built or just 'older system'?

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
