Starcraft II is less than two weeks away, but many of you are still sweating on the game's final, official system requirements (for both PC and Mac) to see if you can play it or not. Well, here they are.

Things don't look too steep from where I'm standing. My PC sits around the "recommended specs" level of things and during the beta it ran like wildfire & gravy, so those sitting on or around the minimum specs, don't worry, you should still be playing a good-looking game.


The game will be out on July 27, but if you feel like torturing yourself, you can download it now and save yourself a delay on the night.
