Hello Mac family!!


I have a question that I have been getting multiple answers to.  My 5th generation Mac has the following specs:


OS X: 10.5.8 Leopard but I will be purchased Snow Leopard and Lion this weekend.

Hard Drive: 50 GB

Processor: 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory: 1GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (recently purchased a 4GB memory module)

Graphics/Displays:  Chipset Model: Intel GMA X3100


Diablo 3 requirements are:


  • Mac® OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.x or newer
  • Intel® Core 2 Duo CPU (or better)
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT or ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 (or better)
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 12 GB available Hard Drive space
  • DVD-ROM drive (for retail disc versions only)
  • Broadband Internet connection
  • Video settings reaching a minimum resolution of 1024x768


I will have the OS X problem fixed when I upgrade to lion.  I will also have the RAM problem fixed when the 4GB module comes in.  I feel everything else is in order except the graphic card.  Will my GMA X3100 support the gameplay or DO I NEED NVIDIA OR ATI Radeon?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
