Doom3: Will it play decently on my hardware?
Advertisements [?]
AMD Athlon 2100+ CPU (overclocked to 2800+ :9 )
Abit NF7 mobo (Nvidia nforce2 technology)
1GB RAM (two 512MB PC 2700 modules)
SB Audigy
Nvidia GeForce 5900FX o/c video card, 700mb/s throughput

Windows XPe
I also have Linux and I gather Doom3 will eventually have a Linux port. (hopefully soon, I hate playing games under Winbloat as it's bloody slow... Unreal Tournament is infinitely faster compared to Windows, hence the unoriginal term 'Winbloat'...)
