Thanks for the help, hopefully my laptop will be ready to go. I wish I had a beta to test it.

Nvidia 9800M GS?

Any word on support for Eyefinity and the like? Crazy widescreen resolutions in particular are what I am curious about.

So we can't buy the hard box copy and just use the CD key that comes with to download it online? (because it requires a disk drive)
I think they did a good job balancing the specs with the graphics. Even supporting Win XP? Does Microsoft even do that anymore?

I have a nice rig but have plenty of friends with several year old PCs that should still be able to play too.
I hope they fill out the item stats soon too :D

The driver's I downloaded for my card were boasting they would help me play diablo 3 better, so they better not be lying to me. I think I'll be fine. I've never met a game I haven't been able to play yet and I highly doubt it will be diablo 3.

Yes, you can.

You'll apply the key in Battle.net Account Management, and then download the installer from there.

You probably won't see this, but Eyefinity is not officially supported..

It may "work", but any issues aren't consider bugs and may or may not be fixed.
I don't see my voodoo 2's on there either.
