Call of Duty Black Ops: Minimum PC Specs – Too High for You?

We have important news for those of you planning to pick up the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, as a full list of the minimum system requirements has been revealed, ensuring that PC gamers have a full heads-up before they commit to a purchase.

As reported from Eurogamer, the list has been provided by reputable online retailer Direct2Drive, which means that the specs are technically still to be officially confirmed by Treyarch.

If you read the list, you’ll see that you’ll need at least a Intel Core2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 in order to run the game, which may prove to be too high for the average PC user.

Other key requirements include a HDD space of 12GB and at least a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT or ATI Radeon X1950Pro video card or better. The directx requirement is set as version 9, not 10 – so that is one thing you’ll be glad about. What are your thoughts on the specs though – can your system run it?

We’re guessing that the specs won’t be a problem for the hardcore gamer, but if you think you’ll struggle to compete with the minimum specs, perhaps a console version will probably be the better option for you.
