With everyone looking forward to what should be one of the most beautiful video games, Crysis, I was wondering if I would be able to play it when it came out, and much to my surprise, the required and recommended specifications have just been released, and while I do have a system that meets the minimum requirements, I am a bit behind on the gear needed to meet the recommended system requirements.
Minimum System Requirements
OS – Windows XP or Windows Vista
Processor – 2.8 GHz or faster (XP) or 3.2 GHz or faster* (Vista)
Memory – 1.0 GB RAM (XP) or 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)
Video Card -NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT 256 MB / ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (X800 Pro for Vista)
Hard Drive – 12GB Free Space
Recommended System Requirements
OS – Windows XP / Vista
Processor – Intel Core 2 DUO @ 2.2GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
Memory – 2.0 GB RAM
GPU – NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS/640 or similar
Does your system meet the minimum requirements? How about the recommended requirements? Are games starting to ask us to drop too much money to keep up with the visuals they want to push to us?
I am not really a console gamer, but these types of requirements mean that I will be playing my Xbox 360 until the recommended video cards come down in price.
