Duke Nukem Forever System Requirements

For the PC gamers we have the minimum and recommended system requirements to run the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever. Now I was surprised by the requirements that have been released by Gearbox as a lot of you may be surprised as well. Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements for you to take a look at:

Minimum Specifications

* OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
* Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.0 Ghz
* Memory: 1 Gb
* Hard Drive: 10 Gb free
* Video Memory: 256 MB
* Video Card: nVidia GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon HD 2600
* Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Recommended Specifications

* OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
* Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.6 Ghz
* Memory: 2 Gb
* Hard Drive: 10 Gb free
* Video Memory: 512 MB
* Video Card: nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS / ATI Radeon HD 3850
* Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

OTHER REQUIREMENTS & SUPPORTS
Initial installation requires one-time internet connection for Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, Microsoft DirectX, Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (ATL), Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable, and AMD Dual Core Optimizer. (AMD optimizer required only for specific AMD processors to run the game correctly, but installs for all of them.)

Looks like my machine will even be able to run the long awaited Duke Nukem Forever, but I will probably stick to a console version.

    I am very surprised and somewhat disappointed the specs are so low

    I was hoping they would really push the game. I have a feeling that Duke will now really show his age and it could easily feel like a 10 yr old game.
