Read the Last Paragraph

" For those of you that think you are not going to have the hardware
that you need to play DOOM 3, the fact of the matter is that many of you
will be just fine, although an upgrade may still be in your future. As
of this afternoon we were playing DOOM 3 on a 1.5GHz Pentium 4 box with
a GeForce 4 MX440 video card and having a surprisingly good gaming
experience. Even a subtle jump to an AMD 2500+ with a GeForce 3 video
card that is two years old will deliver a solid gaming experience that
will let you enjoy the game the way id Software designed it to be. That
fact alone should let many of you know that you will not be left behind
in experiencing DOOM 3. "

Yes, but the big question is can this be played successfully on an
FX5200 with either 64 bit or 128 bit interface?

That is subjective experience and not a fact. I won't really buy
that, unless they tried it with medium details and lower.

Ahh, but will it run on an FX5200 running with Win 98 and a PIII 500, I
seriously doubt it!

series really tears this newsgroup up. So here is the wink emoticon. ;-)
