    Here is another 'Heck Yeah' vote for DIII.

    One thing: You need at least 384MB of RAM, a Radeon 9200/FX5600 equiv vid card, and a decent proc to play it at all, even on Super Low settings.

    A monster rig is needed to turn up the eye candy while maintaining a playable framerate.

    Luckily, I just happen to have a monster rig.;b No, not Alienware. Better, since I sourced all components and built it myself.

    I am guessing that if your system gets under 3,000 points in 3DMark03, you will want to upgrade to play this game in all its glory.

    Last time I ran it, I got 5996, so I know I am okay...

    Best regards,

    I am running a P4 3GHz with 1gb of low latency PC3200, a Radeon 9600 XT, and even with that setup I have to keep the settings pretty low. The video card is the weak link in the chain, but I'm hardly in the mood to drop another $400 on a newer one. 800x600 doesn't look -that- bad in D3 :)
     
  8. AMD Athlon XP 1700+, 640 megs, Nvidia GE Force 4Ti 4200.........will that work?

    Wondering in Waashington?
     
  9. Yes. You may not be able to run 1600x1200 with high-res textures, but you should be okay at 1024x768 with medium settings.

    I have a coworker running 1600x1200 with medium settings and a 1900+ Athlon & 9800 Pro. He reports "acceptable" framerates.

    Sounds good I will have to purchase it! I should be ok on my PC, I just installed X800 pro oc'd with atitool, with P4 2.4GHZ, 1 Gb of 2300 RAM :) Should be suitable for 1024 X 768 shouldn't it? Thanks for all the comments everyone!

    Hey Halo,
    My set-up is similar to yours. I too had a 9600, then got a good price on a 9800 Pro ($50 rebate). It made a huge diiference. It's still not cheap, but...

    Also, ATI has a "trade up" program where you trade in any graphic card for a price reduction on a choice of several ATI cards. The 9800 Pro can be had this way for $199.00

    I might try the 9800, but I normally like to leapfrog rather than buying successive models. I've only had the 9600 for a year and thought it was a fairly high end board at the time. It's been struggling though!

    I have an X800 Pro, P4 2.8E @ 3.4GHz, 1GB PC4000 and I can play at 1280x1024 (my LCD's max res)on high with 8xAniso and it dips towards the 30's in busy areas, but normally sits around 50-60FPS.

    I am finding that I am rapidly growing bored of Doom 3 though, some of the textures are flat and boring and after the creepy effect wears off, it gets rather repetetive. Walk, walk, shoot, shoot, find PDA, open door, repeat.

    I can't wait for HL2 myself :)

    Just bought a 9800 PRO from New Egg for $199.00 and didn't have to trade my other card in.

    Doom 3 is very cool. Bought it Monday and I'm addicted to it.

    My biggest complaint is the lack a tactical light on the pistol, shotgun of SMG :(

    I guess that is what the Duct Tape mod is for.......
