    Edge Z55? I like their stuff, if you have the money to blow and don't want to spend time researching parts and building/troubleshooting yourself.

    Exactly what I wanted.

    Z40 with some significant upgrades. Top of the line asus monitor from newegg. All in all about $1,700 for everything.

    Grrr I only have a laptop. I'd like to get another desktop but I don't want to take up the space in my condo with a desk.

    So can I preload the game so I don't have to wait an hour (or more) to download?

    Yes, you can pre-download the installation files starting now. It's something like 7 gigs so it will take a while.

    then at 8am on Monday you can do the full install and patches

    At midnight you will be able to sign in

    lots of laptops should be able to support the game. They just won't be upgradable to support 2 years-from now's game.

    If you buy straight from blizzard online, I think you get to preload...you just don't get disks.

    This is my issue as well. I don't want a hulking desktop case o take up space. Nor would I want a desk taking up space either.

    Apparently the cinematics have leaked. I'm trying to resist, knowing that a full playthrough without knowing the story will be so rewarding, but it's fucking difficult. [​IMG]

    The download program uses a slow p2p/torrent like program or something so you won't get your max dl speed. (At least I didn't)

    ugh, so tempting. if you haven't seen the "wrath" movie on their site, give it a go. i'm not a big fan of the anime styling, but it gives some background to the story. between that and the tv spot screencaps, here's some random speculation:

    -the fallen star is imperius or tyrael being cast out of heaven
    - tyrael will be some sort of rogue agent cast out of heaven due to a disagreement with imperius, but still fighting for the good guys
    -imperius is an angry dude and will die or become corrupted/join the dark side
    -leah is somehow connected to bad demonic shit happening all the time
    -diablo has a female host --> perhaps is leah?

    i know the story is essentially an afterthought and will probably suck as bad as starcraft 2's, so the cinematics will be eye candy more than anything, but i know i'll still feel guilty if i watch them.

    Buy it now on battle.net, you can begin the download. Also the downloaded lets you disable peer to peer.
