Need for Speed: Shift System Requirements

Gamikaze.pl has published system requirements for the upcoming Need for Speed: Shift game. To even think about running the game one has to have a 3.2GHz Intel Pentium 4 Processor, 1GB RAM and a PCI-Express, pixel shader 3.0 compatible graphic card with 256MB. (Need for Speed: Shift, PC)

Luckily, nearly everyone at N4G already has a PC with powerful specs like that. After all, don't we always hear:

"(insert game here) isn't really exclusive - I can play it on my PC"

I don't think you know what "powerful" specs are..
Most modern games require quad cores.... dual cores...
512gb videocards...+ to run on full.

not a pentium 4, and 256mb videocard...

example: Armed Assault 2, Modern PC game:

* Quad Core CPU or fast Dual Core CPU (Intel Core 2.8 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or faster)
* 2 GB RAM
* Fast GPU (Nvidia Geforce 8800GT or ATI Radeon 4850 or faster) with Shader Model 3 and 512 or more MB VRAM
* Windows XP or Windows Vista
* DVD (Dual Layer compatible), 10 GB free HDD space

^^^^ This is where gaming technology is on the PC.. not a Pentium4..

Safe to say any PC gamer thats played Half Life 2 in 2004 on Maximum.. or any game since around 2005 on max.. will be playing this one just fine. You could play this game on a 400 dollar PC in higher quality than console counterparts.

I built a
phenom x4 with a 8800gts 512 and 4 gigs of memory, plus all the other random parts for $550. Runs crysis on high over 30fps. PC gaming is not nearly as expensive as people think. Though people do throw alot of money is because upgrading is a hobby of its own :)

you know you could probably spend $150 on a new video card and be able to play games a lot better than your consoles

"Most modern games require quad cores"
What modern game requires a quad core? Hell, what game is designed for a quad core?
