While this is no secret, the minimum PC specifications for Call of Duty: Ghosts stipulate that you need 6 GB of RAM to run the game. To clarify, this doesn’t mean that the game will run poorly with less than 6 GB — it means it won’t run at all.

Reports are coming in of customers with only 4 GB of RAM who are receiving an error, pictured above, when they attempt to run the game. So if you plan on picking up Ghosts, be sure that your system can handle it, first. Here are the minimum and recommended specs:

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
  • RAM: 6 GB RAM
  • HDD: 40 GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX: 11
  • Internet: Broadband Internet connection and Steam and Online Multiplayer

Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 – 680 @ 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • HDD : 40 GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 @ 4GB
  • Sound: DirectX compatible sound card
  • DirectX: DirectX 11
  • Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.

As a point of comparison, Battlefield 4 requires a minimum of 4 GB of RAM. And it looks better. Just sayin’. You should also read Game Front’s review of Call of Duty: Ghosts before making a purchasing decision.

6 GB wouldn’t be a problem if the game actually used 6 GB of ram but when playing the game at most only 2 GB of Ram is used.

So the 6 GB mandatory requirement is just inflated.

It is a joke that this game will run on a 360 but you need a dx11 card and 6gb of ram to run this fairly average looking game. Poor optimisation much?
