I can't play this on my 386 DX/66 with 2 MB of RAM?!

Wow, what is this, 1993? The rest of us have moved on to the 486DX. Have fun with no floating point.

#1: By definition the DX suffix denoted a CPU with a floating point unit - SX chips lacked one.

#2: The 386 ranged in speed from 12 MHz to 40 MHz - unless some crazy person out there managed to seriously overclock with liquid cooling...

#3: Be serious - any self-respecting gamer would have at LEAST 4 megs of RAM.

Took long enough guess my AMD 64 3000+ is at the end of the road. Ah well, it had a good run. Guess I'll look at upgrading sometime in the fall.

[GoE]Osiris: SP3 doesn't have security enhancements like SP2. SP2 is still being updated by MS.

Any idea what the specs translate to for MultiCore CPUs?

I've always wonder why system requirements don't list those...

The simple answer is that it's harder to estimate - it doesn't hurt that it plays cheerfully into the (generally correct) perception that multicore CPUs are always faster than single-core CPUs. Everything I've heard indicates that it's well-optimized for SMP configurations*, so even someone gurgling along on a Core2 E1x00 or a Pentium D should be OK in the end. I am a little surprised that they don't clarify whether it will run on one of the single-core Core2 Celerons or AMD Semprons; I'd expect either to generally slap around or pull even with the 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 they mention.

* At least for dual-core... I'd be surprised if this revision of the Doom 3 tech scales as well to arbitrary numbers of CPUs as Source or Unreal 3.

you don't need SP3 for updates, it's not mandatory (unlike sp2)

No Service Pack 3 requirement, thank you very much!

Why would you not want to keep your system up to date with security updates?

Seems like any dual core CPU will suffice.
