So I was wondering, my pc specs are just under the minimum requirements.

Win10
i5-3550
GTX 750

Would it be worth playing the game with this set up? And will I help in any way to the development with my data?

It would not. I tried on a GTX 950M and it was painful. The data may be usefull for Larian but I advise you wait for the full release, when the game is actually optimised.

I played on an old 4gig GTX1050 and couldn't play past medium settings if wanted a full 60fps. No way your GTX750 is getting the job done, sorry.

I'm saddened; I thought this thread was all about playing 55+ year old Player Characters.

My old pc was crap and didn't have a problem except it lagged hard on the vid after the ship. After that I was fine, my buddy crashed on that vid though.

Even if you get it to work for the surface, the Underdark will likely crash it, and Grymforge certainly will.

Well, thanks for all the replies, I guess I'll wait for a better optimized patch.

usually the wait will never arrive. better upgrade to a better card. larian would pretty much care about finishing the game and releasing it than optimizing it at this point.

Well, hopefully optimisation will be done for 1.0. We might also see further improvements later down the line as we did with D:OS2 when Larian was working on porting the game to consoles.

Oh yeah, Larian are surely up to the challenge. A GTX 950 makes D:OS2 run and look better than BG3 in its current state.

well based on experience i recall during the DOS era (not DOS2) i email a couple of bad performance or crashes to larian but never get any direct response. so in the end it was never fixed for me but a new entire system and better GPU did it. that's why banging on larian for the optimization will be a fool's hope. usually.

Optimisation is one of the last things done for the game before it is release, so it reasonable to expect that the game will run better but to what extend I don't know. I do say, that on my old laptop there was a world of different between D:OS2 1.0 and D:OS2 enhanced edition, or whatever it was called. Fortunately for me, I can run BG3 just fine as it is.

last thing done or possibly never be a thing at all usually. since DOS2 have a good track record, hope bg3 follow suit. my guesses bg3 probably will follow that DLC stuff since they possibly have to follow WoTC roadmap? maybe max level 10 upon release and then DLC till level 12. with DLC perhaps it will be great that bg3 enhance edition is a thing and they can focus on the optimisation part.

There's also hope that BG3 will be on nvidia NOW. The support chat is certainly full of requests for it, and DOS 1&2 are both on there already. Nvidia NOW is also a lot better than Stadia in many ways imho.

May I ask if you have tried Nvidia NOW? If you have, how has it been?

You have outdated computer sorry to say.

I ran on old desktop computer as well....
Nvidia 1070 Titanium 8 GB DDR5
16 GB RAM 3200 Mhz DDR4
Fast for being such old CPU AMD RYZEN 2600 X with in TURBO speed 4,2 GHZ 6 cores 12 threads and it runs fine on FULL HD resoluton max settings!

With my budget I think I buy laptop as well with Nvidia 3060 or better (and with minimum 16GB RAM) since I also travel fairly much and will not take my desktop with me on my travels.

Players with good enough hardware for BG3 maximum graphics FULL HD despite graphiccards are old:

Nice! Comparison:
You lady andromedia087 have
CPU released 2021 so quite new CPU.
INTEL I5 11400 with TURBO speed 4,6 GHZ and 6 cores and 12 threads.

Mine is released 2018 CPU and that year 2018 I bought it.
AMD RYZEN 5 2600 X with in TURBO speed 4,2 GHZ 6 cores and 12 threads.

Congratulations you lady andromedia087 have faster CPU then mine not that there is practical difference in BG3, but some other games. Both seems good enough for BG3 FULL HD maximum graphics at least.

Your lady andromedia087 RAM
16 GB DDR4 3200 MHZ

My RAM:
16 GB DDR4 3200 MHZ

You lady andromedia087 have Nvidia 1080 8 GB DDR5 that is nice released 2017 and still good enough for FULL HD graphics and certainly good enough for BG3.

I have also graphiccard released in 2017.
Nvidia 1070 Titanium 8 GB DDR5... that is slightly faster then Nvidia 1070, but your lady andromedia087 Nvidia 1080 8 GB DDR 5 is slightly faster then mine. That said I guess hard to notice difference in BG3 with FULL HD graphics.

This thread needs to be updated. I will make a work travel that takes months abroad. Well not only that a friend of mine wants that I travel with him to Spain or Greece late Autumn 2022 exactly when not decided but absolutely not September.

Therefore I bought this gaming laptop that was on a discount got it roughly for 1300 euro.

Why not wait for Nvidia 4000 series? I guess Nvidia 4000 series comes out on Autumn 2022 to desktops but before we see any kind of laptops with them will be deep into 2023.
In addition I do not like the fact that Nvidia 4000 series will require really much more power like super power source example 800 Watt-1200 Watt and have much higher electricity costs. In addition more power makes it likely to run more hot and thus need more expensive cooling systems.

Nvidia 3000 series is the last Nvidia with reasonable energy costs before Nvidia 4000 series. Of course what happens in future with Nvidia 5000 series etc is unknown.


CPU is strong enough indeed and I do not care that it is older generation not the newest INTEL since so affordable price to buy. Well and then I am not going to start a Intel vs AMD war. AMD 5800H CPU is strong CPU and roughly same speed as this INTEL CPU.


Intel® Core™ i7-11800H

Intel Core i7-11800H Processor - Benchmarks and Specs - NotebookCheck.net Tech Intel Core i7-11800H The Intel Core i7-11800H is a high-end octa-core SoC for gaming laptops and mobile workstations. It is belongs to the Tiger Lake H45 family and was announced in mid 2021.

Well and CPU is good enough for sure 8 CORES 16 threads and in TURBO speed 4,6HZ and CPU cache is enough 24 MB!


RAM 16 GB DDR4
Ram amount is good for BG3!


Graphic card Nvidia 3060 6GB DDR6! It is not super highend so forget about Ray tracing but since laptop is FULL HD resolution display it is good enough for sure for many games and will run BG3 fine on maximum settings FULL HD!


One TERA fast SSD!
In addition I bough an external fast 2 TERA M2 SSD for roughly 75 euro also that with much discount. Thus it will have 3 TERA fast SSD together for this GAMING LAPTOP!

Well and it is ASUS TUF extra durable gaming laptop!

Windows 10 I am kind of old school and do no need rush to Windows 11 yet and that is fine.

DISPLAY 17,3 INCH FULL HD resolution144FPS it means some games that run better could show higher framerate then the typical 60 FPS.

Yes and this GAMING LAPTOP is absolutely good enough for BG3 maximum FULL HD graphics!!! Of course I will enjoy other games as well. Well and no I do not need Ray tracing.

Offtopic? No my point is that if you have old computer you could upgrade to newer computer. In addition I guess some players do not have high budget and I would say for its reasonable budget it is pretty good. Of course if you want to spend more money and get better computer that is absolutely fine.
Well and I am sure you can get better desktop, but I needed really a laptop.

I have not had time to play yet BG3 with this gaming laptop and it will take time to install software to it etc.

Not sure about the latests releases but the very first itteration on GTX950M was actually stable and playable. Few advices:
1) Lower everything related to models and amount of polygones to lowest.
2) Set light filters as high as possible. Medium values at least. If you have a good processor highest should be possible for some of them.
3) Shadows definitely medium/low.
4) Your resolution. Change it to 1200x800 in case your pc still can't keep up.

You won't be close to what's on the screenshots. The game will look like decent games from a couple years ago. Where our graphic cards belong.
