    • Thanks for using my name and posting about your system requirements under jakeduong,

    • Evil panda

      can anyone tell me do you how many gigs do you need to download after you pyrchse the game

    • Jonnypan

      this game is really not that system intensive. I am running it on close to max settings on my SIX year old desktop! 
      Intel Core 2 duo 2.0 Ghz cpu
      Nvidia Geforce 8500gt gpu
      2gb of ram
      so pretty much anyone who has a modern to semi modern pc with even decent to good specs will most likely be able to run this game perfectly! (provided blizzards servers aren’t acting up…)

      Also, something to consider is you internet speed and ping.  Mine is around 1 gb/s with a 90ms ping time. So not extremely fast required, but it’s something to consider. This is because you have to always be connected to blizzards servers, which can make the game lag if your internet is slow.

    • Yeah, that’s the great thing about Diablo 3. Like you say, most people (PC and Mac people even) should be able to run the game.

      PS: Your internet connection is 1GB/sec!?!? I thought my 50MB/sec was fast with a 13ms ping. But I imagine you meant to say 1MB/sec lol! 🙂 Yeah, that sounds like the minimum for most folks.
