My system for Diablo III.

You can see my computer in my signature. I was wondering if it's fast enough to play Diablo III at 1680x1050 and 20 fps?

I see the limit at your GPU, though having them in 2's helps.
Your CPU is great, in fact, you can dialdown a bit to generate less heat.
you can try to OC your ram to 1600 Mhz, should be doable.

yeah, I see only concern being the 2x GTX 480.. as DIII might want to take a bit at sharper graphics.

good luck.

You'll be able to plow through D3 without a problem. GTX460 SLI is around GTX580 performance or a little better. In the beta, I'm using a GTX580 at 1920x1200 with all settings maxed.

Blizzard made D3 "easily accessible" which means even people with old PCs can run the game.

The min specs:
Dual Core CPU
7800GT/X1950 Pro
The recommended specs:
C2D/Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.4-2.8GHz

Thread should probably be moved to "General Hardware" section as it cuts across multple platforms and include GPU options

Yeah it doesn't take much at all. I installed the beta on my HTPC just for S&Gs and it ran like a champ at 1080p. (E5200@3.4 Ghz, 4 GB ram, HD5850 (875/1125)). I really don't see you having a problem running it.

This is a Blizzard game we're talking about! You don't need a lot of resources to have an enjoyable experience. If only they made operating systems and women.
