Get Your Dark Souls PC Requirements!

I'm slowly coming to the realisation that the PC I bought almost five years ago to play Crysis just isn't really going to cut it. There are some really top games coming out on PC over the next year or so. Time to beef up methinks. My computer could totally still run this Dark Souls port, but yeah. I need more power!

Here are the Dark Souls specs as released by Steam.

OS: Windows XP , Windows Vista, Windows 7, or newer Processor: 2.6 GHz Dual-Core Memory: 1 GB (XP), 2GB (Vista/7) Hard Disk Space: 4 GB Video Card: 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 4850 or higher, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher DirectX®: 9.0c Sound: Direct Sound Compatible Additional: Multiplayer requires microphone headset support

So yeah, nothing major, but I'm still going to buy a new PC.


    Wait... headset support.....

    Voice chat?
    In MY Dark Souls?!

      Apparently this is untrue, voice chat will not be in it

      and we can use decent voice chat systems on PC anyway so its no big deal really

        Well it is kind of a big deal - it's not SUPPOSED to have voice chat.

    Wow, that's a low spec! I hope they don't skimp on making it use the potential power of a new PC *cough cough like mine*.

      They are making no changes to the graphics in the game. So, graphically, it will be as good as the PS3 version.

        Hopefully in higher resolution at least.

      Its pretty normal minimum specs for a console port. It obviously will look better if you have better specs :p

    Why people buy shitty ports is beyond me. After it releases there will be a article about how poorly the controls translated and how it looks dated, with a slew of the same people who originally wanted it whining about the above.

      Buy a PC control pad and quit bitching about terrible controls in a third person action game.

    Just goes to show how good the tech is in an x-box ;)
