Im trying to get Diablo 3 this weekend, and lets just say, my computer aint the best. This is Diablo 3's requirements: Hard Drive Space: 12 GB available HD space Operating System: Windows® XP/Vista/7 (latest service packs) with DX 9.0c - Mac® OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.x or newer Processor: Intel Pentium® D 2.8 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ - MAC Mac® OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.x or newerRAM1 GB RAM (XP), 1.5 GB (Vista/7) - MAC 2 GB RAM Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800 GT or ATI Radeon X1950 Pro or better - MAC NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT or ATI Radeon HD 2600 or better My issue is I did a test for the minimum requirements, my computer passed except for my processor. It wants a Intel Pentium® D 2.8 GHz BUT, I have a Intel Pentium® 4 CPU 2.8 GHz. Can I still run it?

if it wants a dual core cpu as a minimum and you try to run it on a single core cpu will will run awful.

Yes, it wants to run on a dual core, and mine is a single core, but both have the same clock speen, nonetheless, I will take your word for it. The one I have is a 32 bit Processor and the one it wants is a 64 bit. Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately, it would run very poorly.

Not to hijack, but what about an Hd2000 (maybe 3000 not sure) on a i5-2310 (think it's that model too lazy to get my lappy from my car). will that run D3?

Google "Can you run it?" and test it for "reccomended" settings. Thats why I asked this question.

Or just run dxdiag.exe in your start menu

no offense but if you dont know much about pc's you probably dont know much about diablo, and have just fallen for the hundreds of millions spent of advertising, it is a very poor, immoral game. torchlight 2 is better. it is immoral because they oretty much ruined it, you cannot play anything unless you are online all the time, even single player. because of this you have to queue just to play single player. the reason you must ve online is because they want to protect against people hacking in single player and then selling in auction for real money. the reason they care about this is because everytyhing sold or brought on the auction is taxed. this game could have been released in 2010 but they decided to spend 2 years creating this auction system to profit constantly from people who become addicted to their game, which is designed to addict people.

please watch total biscuits latest (16th may) mailbox on youtube before you go and support these scumbags.

also goto meta critic and read peoples reviews. the game currntly has a score from the USERS (ie people who have no incentive to be dishonest) of 3.5. even this is bumped up by employees of blizzard rating 10/10 and speaking like it is perfect and all the problems everyone else has arent true.

can you run it is a poor site that often reads things incorrectly, you'd be better off asking on this forum.

Stop trolling, the game is actually good. You may not like the business practice but the game is good.
