PC Version of Dark Souls Has Fairly Modest System Reqs

Will your PC allow you to prepare to die?

At E3, our own Andrew "cubninja" Gaskill had a chance to share some information about the upcoming PC version of Dark Souls (the "Prepare to Die" edition). The PC edition will launch with new areas, enemies, bosses, NPCs, and equipment as well as a new online matchmaking system. The real question is, however, is your gaming PC up to the challenge?

The good news is that if you consider yourself a PC gamer, your PC will probably run Dark Souls. I just replaced my 5 year old computer this month, and my old computer even met these system requirements. Here's what you'll need to play Dark Souls on your PC:

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

The PC version of Dark Souls will be coming to Steam and Games for Windows Live on August 24th, with the additional content being available as DLC for console players this winter
