Just recently got a Sony Vaio VPCEG and I'm new to the PC gaming scene, but I'm really interested in this game. If I can run World of Warcraft should I be able to run this as well? I can post whatever specs you need. I'm just really unfamiliar with all of this.
Well, yea, you really ought to post the specs of your computer if you expect people to answer your question. But, you lucked out. I'm psychic and I can tell that your specs don't meet the minimum requirements. Sorry. My condolences to you and your family and I will be wearing black in the coming week to mourn your tragedy.
Blizzard is known to make games that run over a large, LARGE variety of different specs. Majority of people will not have to worry if they know what blizzard is good at. No one even knows the specs needed yet so thats clue enough bro. Dont sweat it.
Intel HD Graphics is not necessarily that bad, but it is vague. From what I googled, its probably the equivalent of a Geforce 8500 GT at least, and that runs more games than one would think. I just barely got rid of mine and it could run games decently and nobody would believe me. Ran SC2 very well, too, at low graphics mind you, with the rest of the computer far worse than yours.
Nothing is certain, but I'm quite confident that your computer can run it well enough. Don't expect top of the line FPS and expect to have graphics at low (and a low resolution, nothing above 1024x768), but it should be smooth enough and playable.
Thanks guys, first that I'm hearing that my graphics card isn't completely worthless. I don't really care to run anything like Crysis or anything. I just want to play an MMO on my computer without having to spend a fortune on a new one (this is a brand new Sony Vaio, it just wasn't designed with games in mind). I wanted to play Final Fantasy XIV, but it doesn't look like my computer is fit for that, so now I'm getting really interested in Diablo. My graphics card is an Intel HD 3000 series if that gives any more insight.
