Doom 3 runs slowly and lags on my Computer. I have 512 ram, AMD Duron 1.1gig processor. Shouldnt this be enough to run this game? I can run all other games I try. I will be upgrading my ram to 1 gig and my processor also. Gotsta get this game going... looks really cool!
Slightly cooler than a n00b

These are the minimum system requirements on my Doom 3 box.
=3D Hardware Accelerator Card Required - 100% DirectX 9.0b compatible 64MB Hardware Accelerated video card and the latest drivers. =Windows 2000/xp =Pentium IV 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP 1500+ processor or higher =384MB Ram =8x Speed Cd-Rom drive(1200KB/sec sustained transfer rate) and latest drivers =2.2Gb or uncompressed free hard disk space (plus 400Mb for Windows swap file) =100% DirectX 9.0b compatible 16-bit sound card and latest drivers =100% Windows 2000/XP compatible mouse, keyboard and latest drivers
What video card do you have?
I have a 128 meg card from MSI - not sure the exact model name, I will have to check the box. I also have tv in/out hook up which makes gaming way more interestin on the big screen tv

Use the tweak guide which will make it run faster. http://www.techspot.com/tweaks/doom3/index.shtml
I found somewhere on this forum, someone who said "In your DOOM 3 directory, find "DoomConfig.cfg" (x:\Program Files\Doom 3\base). Open DoomConfig.cfg in Notepad.
Find the line:
seta image_cacheMegs "32"
I changed 32 to 96.
I got a nice boost in performance. I dunno if the tweak worked or not (maybe my machine did something wierd, have no clue), so I'm just seeing if this works for others as well, or if a different setting works better than others."
