if i only have 2g ram at the moment is that going to be enough to run diablo 3?


Yep you're fine. But it would be a good idea to upgrade to 4GB for a cheap performance boost. Memory prices have plummeted.

If you're using DDR3. =/
DDR2 is more expensive than ever.


Ouch. Yeah DDR2 is falling off as not many companies are making it anymore.

Actually, the HD 3850 has way better performance than the 520 GT. The 520 GT actually might not be supported in Diablo III's beta since it's several tiers below the 1950 PRO, which is the minimum requirement.

Hierarchy Chart doesn't show you which is better, you got to look at bench mark for graphic comparison, one graphic card could have one aspect better then other, other can have a different aspect better. so don't talk like you know what you are talking about, since those are older models card, not going to argue with you about this, you have to look it up for comparison .

and this joker got a key.


website to look at benchmark for your card.

It's too bad the Beta Profile program can't detect that you are able to test on both OSs with aforementioned specs....
