I bought my computer 6 months ago. When I got it, it was almost the best money could buy. My computer specs:
Windows XP Professional SP1
Intel P4 2.6GHz, 800MHz FSB
Asus P4C800 Intel i750
Asus V9560 GeForce FX 5600 Ultra
1GB PC3200 RAM
Guess what, the game plays reasonably smoothly only at 640x480 and at the lowest graphics quality. Still, when there are many enemies on screen, the game breaks up. On higher resolutions it is like watching a fucking slide show.
I thought maybe my computer is crap and I should drop it in a dumpster. But then I came accross a forum that said there’s no commercialy available computer that can play Doom at full resolution/graphics.
I have lots of other games. FarCry, Painkiller, Thief 3, Unreal Tournament 2004 to name a few. They all run exceptionaly well on my computer. Doom 3 runs like a dog.
id, you suck donkey balls. I demand my 1.5GB back.
