Running the Beta...

General Discussion
Just wondering...what type of video card/processor people in the beta are running. I'm looking for a new computer since my video card on this laptop is crap.
I run it on a Core 2 Quad Q6600, 4GB DDR2 memory, and a Radeon 5830. It runs fine on high. I sometimes encounter some slowdown when there's a lot going on on screen, and it typically performs better if I close youtubes or other things in the background. This may have to do with my fairly skimpy amount of RAM, my processor, or my video card, as all are sort of borderline parts at this point.
Alright thanks! :)

d3 will run on 2 core no? i7 if you wanna futre proof your machine. othewise i5.9800 gtx will run it at around 30 fps i imagine. a midrange gaming card will blaze d3 though. for gaming it seems 460gtx or 560gtx is most popular atm


I forgot what processor I had on this laptop but I know it has an Intel Mobile 4 Family Chipset (or something like that) which is NOT for gaming. But thanks for the tips i'll keep an eye out.

Alright thanks for the input! I'll see what info I can put together. :)
Go with the i5-2500K CPU and a Radeon HD 6950 or a Radeon HD 6870 for the best gaming results, especially for Diablo 3. Also suggest a Gigabyte Z68 UD3 or even UD4 if u have a Micro Center by you, ther is a i5-2500K + Z68 UD4 MB for a cheap combo price.
