Diablo® III

Test computer capability?

Posts: 4
Hi guys,

Is there a way to test if your computer is good enough to run D3 without having to buy it before? I hope of all my hearth my laptop is good enough and would like to know if I will be able to run it. Do you think it will work, at least on low res, if my laptop is able to run SC2 on low res? (I got like, dual core Intel Pentium 2.1ghz, 4gb ram, no graphic card that's the problem)

Thanks!

With only a 2.1GHz processor and no gfx gpu...

It might run at 800x600 on the lowest settings... I could try running the beta on my gf's laptop if you'd like which has similar specs?

Well, it's not in my needs (and budget) to buy a better and expensive computer, since I only use it for Internet thingys and casual gaming (LoL, SC2, etc)
As for the graphic cards, if there is one thing I would do about my PC it's definitely this! The problem is that changing a Gateway laptop's graphic card seems impossible from what I read...

@Psionic That would be really nice if her laptop is similar to mine! :D
You can see my techs here:

The graphic card in it is "Intel HD", thought it doesn't seem such HD

Thanks to all!! :)

So apparently my CPU isn't strong enough and for the graphic card I only miss some "Dedicated Video RAM" (I have 128mb, I need 256mb)
Though, it says I fail LoL too, while it runs smoothly, so I don't know...

Those sites only check to see if you meet the minimum supported requirements.
Less than the minimum can still be playable, but it's at your own risk sorta thing.

Alright then, I guess they will make a demo or something at the launch so I'll test with that, meanwhile I will live in the terrible fear of not being able to play D3

Thanks folks!
