It doesn't bring you closer to a solution because there isn't one. I'm not rubbing it in your face, I'm telling you the truth you refuse to accept. Tons of people get on this forum with a sense of entitlement, that they deserve to be able to play this on their old computer, when that's simply not true.
A $400 PC from 4 years ago simply does not cut it. You get what you pay for, and now you're paying the price for getting a low end machine back then. It's unfortunate, but that's life.
You know absolutely nothing. I have a Sony Vaio laptop that costed me $900 and I'm still running into the same problem. The video board has ZERO relation to how cheap or expensive the computer is. For the people that are actually here trying to solve this issue instead of frustrating others, unfortunately there is nothing that can be done if you have a laptop. They do NOT make video cards for laptops to be sold separately anymore, but they do for desktop computers. A good video board that will give you high performance for DIablo 3 will run between $100 and $200, which isn't that bad. I, instead, will have to either buy a new laptop (which I would hate to do because my laptop is still fantastic, aside from the video board issue), or buy a desktop computer, which is less useful but will cost me about half of what a laptop would. Between my collector's edition and the desktop computer, I will end up spending about $500 just to play the game. I'm going to have to wait a couple of weeks to be able to buy the computer and start playing. I wish there was something else any of us could do, but there isn't
