Default Doom 3

I just loaded up Doom 3 tonight, and I won't have a chance to play it until tomorrow. But all the same I was wondering: I have a Athlon 64 at 2.3ghz, a 9800Pro and a gig of Ram. When the game scanned my system for recommended settings, it recommended 640x400 at "medium" detail. Does this mean my system will have toruble running Doom 3?

Doom 3's "quality identification" system only checks the raw processor speed, not its equivalency (e.g. Athlon XP 2400+ to a P4 2.4 GHz) so if you have anything less than say, 3 GHz, the game will usually default to low/medium settings.

For that system, 1024x768 high quality should be playable, 1280x1024 as well, and ultra quality might work flawlessly too.

Alright! Once I get the sound problem fixed I'll start playing at 1280x1024 "High" and tone it down if I experience problems. Thanks Martin
