Diablo® III

Diablo III System Requirements

Beyond the minimum requirements, we recommend the following for adequate performance:

PC: NVIDIA® GeForce® 260.

Aw sh-

NVIDIA GeForce 230M. (I've really got to find out if my laptop can support upgrading...)
I don't know much about processors to understand how low GHz effects game play.

I know my Laptop meets the minimum requirements with:
Nvidia 9600: 1gb
Ram: 4gb

But my curiosity is the processor.
Intel Core 2 Duo: 2.0GHz

Does this low GHz mean the game wont work at all or maybe it can, just slowly?
I appreciate any help, thanks.

If you'll note, your intel core 2 duo is ALMOST as good as the recommended, which is a 2.4 versus your 2.0 The minimum is only a pentium 4 2.8, which yours is roughly twice as strong as since its a dual core. Mind you, my processor is 10 times stronger than yours, so you've got plenty of room to upgrade if it makes you feel more comfortable.

I've got a Radeon HD 7770 vid card from Radeon. The 7000 series is listed as unsupported but this is the HD 7000 series, they are not the same correct?

Why isn't there a system check that can be run on battle.net which tells you whether you can run D3, rather than have the forum posters have to tell you whether you can or not?

If ppl find out that their computers can't run it, they might be less willing to buy the game = loss in revenue for blizz. But considering how ppl on the forums and BNet website are generally pretty loyal and enthusiastic about getting the games, it'd be really helpful to have an engine that spits out predicted performance numbers based on your computer's specs
Thank you Leafblight. I understand better now.
will my radeon 7970 run it ?

Wondering when Blizzard will begin working on a patch for Windows 8. Can run quests ok but no dungeons on WOW, cant install Diablo III yet.

yea.... ur graphic card can't even run it on low, please upgrade it to GTX680 and sell me that 7970 for 100USD.
In the Diablo3 system requirement article, they should include UltraSetting system requirement recommendation (the minumum spec to set all high/ultra with 1920X1080 res)

sorry if i look like i'm trolling here.
i've been reading about some anomalies with the graphic card i'm using in the beta forums.
recently too, i've been having problems with my starcraft II as well. (it loads, but when the loading is done, the game crashes.)
so i have certain doubts about my notebook.
would my machine run diablo III?

Intel® Core™ i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz
2.32 GHz
7.91 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M
3.97 GB

Does my system spec meet the minimum requirements? My main question is regarding my processor.

Type: Desktop
OS: Windows XP prof SP 3
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 duo core 3800+ 2.0 GHz
Graphics: Nvidia 9800 GT
HDD: 1 Terabyte
PSU: 500W

Edit: I did some follow up research, it looks like the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.2 GHz, is .2 GHz faster that my processor. All of my other compoments meet the minimum requirements. Will the lower processor speed prevent the game from running or make it unplayable because of lag or framerate loss or is it close enough to run the game on lower settings.

I know that the systems specs for diablo 3 are higher than starcraft 2, but i can run that on medium to high without many issues (except in occasions where it is like 4 player 180-200ish armies).

Finally, is there a way to test the game (i dont have the beta), before buying to see if it would run ok? Thanks for any responses.

I have read the current list of Video Cards supporting Diablo III. Some months ago (actually November/December) there was a bigger list. My brother has Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 atm, and I have GTX 460. Mine should be just fine, but in December my brother's card was listed, but atm is not. Would it still run the game with it?

PS: He's got Core2Duo processor with 8GB RAM and I'm running a Core i5 with 16GB RAM, just if someone would need to know.

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

Only people who are terrible at games need eyefinity
