In the world of gaming, id Software has been credited with many firsts, and they are about to achieve one more. id wanted the minimum required computer specifications for DOOM 3, or the “min spec system” requirements, to reflect a system that can actually provide what the game has to offer. Many times we've seen min spec systems not come close to providing a good gaming experience, but that will not be the case with DOOM 3. The min spec system outlined on the DOOM 3 packaging is very playable, and we will prove that to you in our guide. This alone should let many of you know whether or not you have a DOOM 3 capable system. The fact is that id Software has done a tremendous job in optimizing DOOM 3 for computers that are two years old or older. If you have a 1.5GHz Pentium and a 3D card that has been made in the last couple of years, you should be able to enjoy the DOOM 3 experience as it was meant to be.
