Mass Effect Minimium Requirements Released

pic_mass_effect_races.jpg

It appears that the PC release of Mass Effect is shaping up to be big news. While 360 owners got the original release everything about the PC product is looking superior and more polished. Jay Watamaniuk, Bioware’s Community Manager let loose the system requirements and minimum specs earlier this week and its looking like any moderately powerful gaming rig will be sufficient to run Mass Effect. Its amazing to see the difference in requirements among these console to PC ports and how some have ridiculously high requirements – like Assassin’s Creed – while games that don’t have a significant visual difference like Mass Effect will run on very reasonably built systems.

Minimum System Requirements:
Operating System: Windows XP or Vista
Processor: 2.4+GHZ Intel or 2.0+GHZ AMD
Memory: 1 Gigabyte Ram (XP) 2 Gigabyte Ram (Vista)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6 series(6800GT or better) ATI 1300XT or better (X1550, X1600 Pro and HD2400 are below minimum system requirements)
Hard Drive Space: 12 Gigabytes
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card and drivers

Recommended System Requirements:
Operating System: Windows XP or Vista
Processor: 2.6+GHZ Intel or 2.4+GHZ AMD
Memory: 2 Gigabyte Ram
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX or higher or ATI X1800 XL series or higher
Hard Drive Space: 12 Gigabytes
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card and drivers and 5.1 sound card recommended

That’s it?

That’s what the Xbox graphics is compared too?

That’s childs play.

I hope they give us more eye candy than what’s in the xbox version.

If I can run Creed on high only one resolution down than the one I normal use (otherwise maxed out besides AA) I guess I’ll be running this thing maxed. I want a release date ):

With the new parts I upgraded recently, my computer should be able to dominate this.

I’m still not positive I’ll be buying it, though.
