We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

the problem with this is that most people who wonder about system reqs usually lack the knowledge to determine whether their own hardware falls above or below them to begin with.

so yeah this topic won't really go anywhere unlike the "official" can diablo 3 run on my computer topic.

If console gaming is so cheap then why do I have to spend $600~ in order to play Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 3 and Halo 3?

NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800 GT or ATI Radeon™ X1950 Pro or better

Here's the problem.

What is "or better"?
Do the numbers always match product value (e.g. GeForce 8000 GT > GeForce 7800 GT?)?
Are Video Card values subjective at all?
Do they always perform at a specific level despite the other aspects of a computers' configuration?

You can also visit the website of the manufacturer, where they love to put up comparisons of their cards. Also, you can look online for card comparisons from tech experts.

The processor will have to be accounted for, but here's a list of tiered laptop graphic cards:

Upper "class 4" and higher will probably be the minimum graphics processing needed for laptops. Desktop graphic processors should be fine even lower down the list. However, the laptop should need more than integrated graphic chips to play smoothly.

Here's a chart based on today's games: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-Games-on-Laptop-Graphic-Cards.13849.0.html

The "X graphics card or better" statement needs to have this chart accompany it at all times:

my laptop couldn't play that (hell it can barely play minecraft), but my desktop beats the **** out of those requirements.

on a related note, i really like that chart on graphics card. would have been very helpful when building my desktop.
