    Pretty much all MMORPG's require a monthly charge, so its likely this game will also.

    There might not be a monthly charge, its like Dioblo 2 so they will most likely put it on b.net, if not then it will have a monthly charge, hopefully its cheap since they will have a millions of people paying and playing.

    Yes, its like Intrgral said most MMORPG do have a monthly fee
    probally be like 10-20 bucks a month, and im sure they will have a option where you can pay to play like for a year in one fee
    which could be 80+ bucks.

    MMORPG stands for Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game

    You know, in the World of Warcraft faq on the blizz site it says their going to have a monthly charge.......Those servers they have with thousands of people playing on it cost money to run. All MMORPG's have monthly charges, except for Runescape, which is a pretty crappy freeware mmorpg.

    But there is another MMORPG that is coming out from ex blizzard workers that will have no monthly charge. It will get money by putting on optional expansion packs every4-6 months. I'm gonna get that game.

    Actually RAM is very important..... if I were you I'd go buy some more memory.

    However, you can get an exceptional dell for around $800
