Yes, But Can Your PC Run Battlefield 3?

Over the weekend, hardware specifications for one of the PC's most anticipated games of 2011 appeared on GameStop's website. They've since been removed, but the internet never forgets.

The specifications, which may or may not be final, read as follows:

Minimum

Hard Drive Space: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHzRAM2GB
Video Card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card

Recommended

Hard Drive Space: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPURAM 4GB
Video Card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850

For something that looks so amazing with the detail cranked up, if these are legit those recommended specs are indeed a little steep. The minimums, though? Not bad. Unless you've got an old graphics card that can't do DirectX 10. But then, there's always a game that comes along which forces people to upgrade, and this may well be it.

Seeing as these appeared on a retailer listing and not as part of an official announcement, we've contacted EA for confirmation on these, and will update if we hear back.
