breadman,

i'm in the same boat as you - 1.9ghz cpu with 512 ram and a fx 5600 ultra. i'm going to get D3 at best buy because they have a deal where if you buy D3 with Kingston RAM (decent stuff from the reviews i've read) you get a $20 gift card. they have a 512MB stick of PC2700 for $100, with a $35 rebate (mail-in though, dammit) it costs $65.

i know the extra RAM will help, but not an amazing amount. i wondered about the vid card too... is it worth getting the next-gen FX's and ATI's with such a slow processor? i dunno...

I just used the "Doom for Windows 95 loader that came with the game and it all basically ran fine.

ray, did you try using jdoom?? it's the only thing that let me use my usb mouse properly - and it fixed my sound problems as well. all the extra graphic effects are cool too...

i plan to buy it at Best Buy, if they have it first.... even if it's $75, they have a 30 day price match policy. if you see an ad with a cheaper price within 30 days of your purchase, just bring in the ad and your receipt and they refund the difference... you can even do it more than once - say for example you buy it for $55 and the next week CompUSA has it for $50, you can go get the $5 back. then if the next week cuircuit city has it for $45, you can go back again and get another $5...

well, the rumors are false - at least around my neck of the woods. i just got back from best buy, comp usa, and gamestop and NONE of them have the game.... and they all seemed to think they won't have it until tuesday, except gamestop who said they will have it wednesday or thursday!

so i don't know who said that best buys around the country were setting up displays - but the one out here isn't... the guy said they had one copy of the game in back for store use only, but i think he may have been bs'ing me.

so much for the rumors... no D3 this weekend for me.

There is none. Not anymore at least, only movies have a penalty.

ahhhh.... that explains it then. no penalty means no waiting for us! i'll be up early tomorrow... hell, i may not even sleep! it's almost 2am here anyway. i know i have bought a few games the day before they were supposed to release from BB in the past (WC3, for example) and i assumed i just got lucky. apparently, they have no deterrent from putting up for sale the second it's in their hands!

damn... i wanna do a defrag, but there's a lightning storm going on... i always wondered what would happen if the power went out during defrag!

Ray,

buy it from gamestop (if it's out tomorrow) and when you get your copy from EB, return that one to gamestop on the gamestop receipt!

Get both!

well, i'd have to find it in a $9.99 bargain bin or something, i really shouldn't even buy D3 for $55, being on the goverment payroll, but by gosh i've waited for years and i'm not gonna miss the next id experience!! it's been since 1997 and Q2 since i've had the joy of a new id SP game!!! wow... is it really just 3 days until we get our hands on that goldmine??? oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!!!!

SCREW YOU, MATTHEW, AND THE POP TART YOU HAD THIS MORNING!?!

damn right i had a pop-tart, i ain't no fruit roll-up eatin' communist!!!

You know, if somebody is truly right/all-knowing/correct/glorious/1337...one does wonder why these individuals so often belittle others rather than being comfortable with their own self and doing what they can to help others.

AMEN!

as for DOOM 3, i can only weep that my system is just a wee, wee bit below the specs that make it playable at 1024x768 at Medium quality... my processor is just 500 mhz too slow, my memory needs to be doubled up to 1 GB, and my video card needs to evolve from a 5600ultra to a 5700 ultra, by magic... or i gotta spend a good $500 to make all that happen... carn-sarn-frikkin-frakkin-son-of-a-frapper-sapper!!!

maybe i should grab BG&E instead of D3... whaddaya think, Ray?
