Doom 3 is due out next week. [H]ard|OCP has a guide on how well your hardware should run. If you have a low-end video card, fear not, DOOM 3 will look good on it. By default, all of the advanced quality settings such as shadows, specular lighting, and bump mapping are enabled. As long as your video card meets the system requirement of a GeForce4 MX-440 64MB, all of these effects will be available to you. The only effect that will not be present is Heat Haze, which requires a DX9 level video card. Seeing as how some people are going totally nuts about how they need the latest and greatest hardware to play Doom 3, this is a great guide to show you that it is playable on even some relatively crappy hardware.
