Diablo® III

graphics card issue / question

ok My comp came with a ATI Radeon HD 3000 . I downloaded Diablo 3 and found that this card can only run in 800 / 600 res with all the settings down ... horrible i know lol

But i went ahead and purchased a new card - ZOTAC GeForce GT 545 1.5GB GDDR3 PCIe 2.0
coming tomorrow

I know its not top of the line ... but should it be alright to run Diablo3 at decent levels ? I'm a bit of a noob in terms of Graphics cards , But I do know my comp is more than powerful enough for the game just not the card obviously

I havent been able to enjoy the game because of this just nervous hoping it will work :(

HD 3000 which model? 3870? Or what?

That said GT 545 should be able to run it at low / some medium settings well.

Shared VRAM. That's nuff said, it's some low-end integrated graphics.

GT 545 will definitely be a good improvement from it, but how much did you pay for this GT 545? :X

Overpriced,

For $90, you could have bought HD 6770, which beats GT 545 by miles.
