Default Doom3

Those of you who have played it, how do you like it? I think it'* pretty good and it definately scares the Shi*t outta me pretty often. My video card isn't up to par though even at 64MB because the image is kinda jerky so when people jump out it'* even scarier than normal because it'* hard to aim and shoot when the picture is jerking on you a little bit.
FOr those of you whose computers this runs perfectly good on, what are your specs? I'm running it on:

Ultra DMA 7000 RPM 200 GB HD with 90GB free
AMD Athlon XP2800+(2.1GHZ athlon speed or same as a pentium 4 2.8 GHZ)
512 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 64 MB.

If you haven't tried it yet you can download a demo off of www.download.com I'm just playing the demo right now. I wanted to make sure my computer could handle the game before I bought it. (which it can't really handle unless I upgrade to a better video card I assume.)

A Geforece 4 MX? That'* essentially a Geforce 2. The Geforce 4 TI would be much better...

Memory size isn't a huge part of determining performance in video cards anymore, all memory does is store textures, and such, your problem is the processing.

I saw a very very very very early release a year or two ago, and it was on a 9700 Pro, good lookin game.

Its horrible on my 3.06ghz dell with 1gB ram and Radeon 7000 32MB card.
Even at 640x480 it is just barely playable

Haven't played it yet. I don't think my computer could handle it though. We got a new graphics card ( i forget what kind). But it is usually sort of hard to play good video games. Bought the computer about two, maybe three years ago this next Christmas.

Doom3 is great... I played it hardcore for a week and beat it. I'm running an Athlon 2200 and a GeForce 4 4800 (8X AGP, 128 MB RAM, decent little card), but let me tell ya, it'* all about my GAMING CHAIR! That'* right.... Audigy 2 sound card with 5.1 surround, with the rear speakers attached to a board mounted on the back of the chair with the subwoofer bungee-strapped right underneath my butt. Half the experience of that game is the sound, and it'* best when you're fully immersed in it and the bass rumbles your bowels. It'* the only way to play Doom3, or Call of Duty for that matter. I've been very happy with it... it won't stack up to Halflife 2 though.
