    "I'd say we'll need a CPU running at 2GHZ or more, 128 RAM at least and any graphics card from GF3 upwards. These specs are in regard to an optimized system - not the minimum requirements." From here.

    Some nice screenshots are here.

    My guess would be something along the lines of Unreal Tournament 2003 needs, mind u that is my guess and for the true answer we'll have to wait till they let us know.

    recommended specs are prob going to be around ut2k3 like chastity said...

    processor probably best over 700-800 looking for around a 1ghz processor...

    for vid card get something good if you don't have one already...

    the cheapest nextgen card is the radeon 9000pro for less than 100 dollars whereas the g4 ti4200 which is a very good card can be had for around 130-160 depending on manufacturer/point of sale/amount of memory...

    I don't think you need a 2 GHZ to play it in high detail. I would take put a bet that the game can run full speed on high with 512 ram and at least 1.6 ghz. Graphics wise, I wouldn't try to hit the game with anything less then Geforce 4 Ti4200 with 128mb ram...
    also, not running any other apps while playing it wouldnt hurt...

    How about getting your hands on the biggest hardware your PC can fit!!! To get the best results it'll use some new ATI card which is gonna be launched the same time as the game.

    BRING BACK VECTOR GRAPHICS!!
