Graphics Card Incompatability

I find it very disturbing that I have been looking forward to playing Diablo 3 for months now and today I find out that my Graphics card does not support the game. I did get my version free when i signed up for a year of World of Warcraft so I really have no right to complain. However, with all these "perks" I was suppose to be getting for signing up for the 1 year contract. The beta of MoP crashes very frequently during game play. I get a few minutes here and there where it doesnt crash.

I have reached end game content with Cataclysm a month ago and was really looking forward to playing something new til MoP hits. Loading WoW these days is just very boring. I spend much of my time on the game these days just conversing in Trade chat and farming. :(

Now, I find out just a few hours before launch that I wont even be able to play Diablo. So I guess with this 1 year contract deal for me all i got was a mount i never ride. How very very disappointing, considering the free copy of Diablo 3 was the only reason i signed up for it. I guess the old saying is true "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is" /cry

if this is a pop up when you hit play that tells you your card is unsupported, hit the escape key rather than ok and it should load up the game.

Jebus man, that's one helluva ancient GPU.

A freaking on-board Intel chipset would run better than that.

Minimum requires NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT, so yes, an upgrade is in order.

I know but check this out.

"I see several reports from users of ATI HD 4000, 5000, and 6000 series cards getting a message about their video cards not being supported."

I mean, when he first started this thread i thought that might have been his issue, so i was kinda wonder how people are finding this bug so i can see if im getting it or not with my card so i can try to fix it before launch.
