Good luck getting it to work once the lights go off in most sections and the level is lit by your flashlight.

My system is as follows:
AMD XP2800+ Barton
GF FX5900
1Gig of ram

I can play doom 3 on lowest settings at 1024x786, with decent performance.. and that means 50 fps avg..

So if you extrapolate from there, i personaly think you haven't got what it takes.. But you should see for yourself, download the demo

Let's see - half the video speed, half the ram, and a notch or three slower CPU? Let's hear back about the demo results - it should be interesting at least :)

He'll never tell us what he ends up doing.

Half the retards take the advice and run. Never bother to come back and thank anyone. Bastards.

I played and finished Doom 3 on my Athlon XP 1600+, 768mb SDRAM, GF2 64MB. It was ugly and choppy but it was possible. Generally always lower than 20fps 8)

The expansion, however, ran even worse...

Yeah, for me Doom3 ran pretty much the same on low and medium. What made a big difference in fps was turning on/off some of the advanced settings.

Though if you could call 20fps playable I'm not sure... :wink:
