DOOM 3 Requirements

Gamers, check under hood because Doom 3 is coming on the Houston Chronicle discusses system requirements for playing DOOM 3. In spite of Todd Hollenshead previously deferring to the expertise of the programmers for hardware info (story), these minimum requirements are apparently courtesy of id's CEO:

A 1.5-gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 chip or AMD Athlon 1500.
384 megabytes of memory.
Two gigabytes of hard drive space.
An nVidia GeForce 3 graphics card or better; or an ATI Technologies 8500 or better.

79. Re: Upgrade for Doom 3 release. Jul 20, 2004, 14:23 Caspar Nielsen
Here is what I am buying:

* Viewsonic VP201s
* Logitech diNovo Media Desktop
* Lian Li PC-6070B Miditower
* ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe
* Pentium 4 3.2 GHz
* Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 Pro 256-MB OEM
* Maxtor Atlas 10K III (73.4 GB, 10000 rpm / 8 MB / 4.5 ms / Ultra 160)
* 2 X 512-MB Corsair TwinX XMS DDR400/PC3200LL
* NEC 8X Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW ND-2510A OEM
* 3Com EtherLink 100 Mbps PCI
* Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 PCI / 24 bit

4300 is what this will cost. I don't think it can come cheaper, I've been checking out many places to buy from.
