Diablo 3 Recommended System Requirements

PC Requirements

OS: Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 (Latest Service Packs)

CPU: Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz / AMD AthlonTM 64 X2 5600+ 2.8 GHz

So as we can see when we are aiming for the Diablo 3 recommended system requirements it is looking to require a reasonably powerful graphics card to hit the mark. The CPUs are fairly standard dual cores and the RAM is still only 2GB. So maybe a few people will need to consider a FX upgrade but all in all it should be accessible to most. We have put together our GD adjusted requirements for Diablo 3 below which is what our requirements tool will be based on but as always we will be looking to you to report your real world findings to helps us refine this data. If you are fortunate enough to get on the Beta or once you get to play this then dont forget to check your Frames Per Second and report your figures on our Diablo III ratings page
