Is your PC up for id Software's version of a post-apocalypse? Can you play Rage as God and John Carmack intended? Why not check the Windows version's system requirements, just in case you need a last minute hardware upgrade?

I'm thinking you'll find Rage's minimum and recommended hardware requirements firm but fair, Kotaku readers. Let us know if you plan on picking up the PC version and please keep the Mac OS X release in your thoughts and prayers for people like me. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Without further ado, here are your Rage requirements, straight from Bethesda.

Minimum

  • OS: Win XP SP3, Vista, Win 7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo or Equivalent AMD
  • Memory: 2GB
  • Hard Disk Space: 25GB
  • Video Card: GeForce 8800, Radeon HD 4200

25GB?

My first reaction was "WHOOAAAHHH"

My second reaction was "Finally!"

Hard drives are huge. Video games take up tiny little bits of hard drives. If you can make the game bigger by using more hard drive space, why the hell not? Even my modestly-priced two-year-old gaming laptop has a 600GB hard drive, and what serious PC gamer doesn't have at least one extra drive kicking around somewhere?
