I just downloaded the Beta and it laughed at my video card. Display adaptor:: Radeon HD 4200. I have a Dell Inspiron 570, AMD Athlon II x 4 630 (2.8GHz). RAM is DDR3 SDRAM at 1066Mhz - 2GB x 4 RAM chips. Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. 750GB Serial ATA 2 Hard drive 7200RPM.
So what display device/graphics card do I need to run the Diablo III coming out May 15th? I don’t need super speed as I’m just a casual gamer. I just need it to work. Since I know nothing about graphic cards could you tell me a couple of models that will just work as well as a couple a grade above, and which you’d buy.
If one is like $50 and the other $70 and the extra $20 buys a lot better one then I’ll spend it. I don’t really want to go over $100 unless necessary. $50 would be nice but somehow I’m thinking those don’t exist to run that game!
On a funny note, I just played the beta and with vsync on my 7970 sat around 25-30% usage delivering constant 60fps. Kinda sad, but I guess Blizzard has never been known to push great graphics out the door...
Wasn't terribly impressed by the beta myself, at least not the first hour or two. Seems kinda "meh". But then again I wasn't a big fan of Diablo 2's Act I, so maybe that's just the fault of the start of the game.
