Doom 3 Review: The Legacy Continues  - Doom 3 Review: The Legacy Continues

As you might expect, state-of-the-art graphics and animation come with a price in hardware. Doom 3 demands a fairly mighty system to run effectively with all the eye-candy enabled. The game uses four separate detail levels for different For what it's worth, the video card seems to be more important than the rest of the system when it comes to determining how well the game will run. Id actually segmented the detail levels based on the amount of video memory available, since the two highest detail levels use uncompressed textures which require at least 128MB of VRAM to run smoothly.

Doom 3 still looks fantastic in the lower detail levels, but the higher levels do offer compelling extra eye-candy. For what it's worth, we'd recommend a 256MB video card, either ATI or Nvidia and at least a 2Ghz Intel or AMD processor with 512 MB of memory to get the most out of your gaming experience.
