Nvidia has revealed the system requirements for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City, but can your rig handle it? Chances are you'll be fine.

The video card manufacturer states that a 2.4GHz Dual-Core CPU, 2GB of RAM and a GeForce 8800 GT will give you a high level of visual fidelity, but none of the extras. A GeForce GTX 460, however, in conjunction with a 2.5GHz Dual-Core CPU and 4GB of RAM, will allow you to use the game's Recommended High settings and PhysX - seen in the trailer below.

Further more, Nvidia says that a GeForce GTX 460 or GeForce GTX 560 will allow you to play Arkham City comfortably at 1920x1080 with PhysX enabled; a GeForce GTX 570 allows you to enable additional DirectX 11 effects; and a GeForce GTX 580 allows you to experience the game in all its glory and in stereoscopic 3D Vision.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or 7
  • CPU: Dual-Core CPU 2.4 Ghz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA 8800 or ATI 3800 with 512MB of VRAM
  • Sound: Microsoft Windows XP/Vista or 7 compatible sound card (100% DirectX 9.0c-compatible)
  • DVD-ROM: Quad-speed (4x) DVD-ROM drive
  • Hard Drive: 17.5GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows XP/Vista or 7 compatible mouse and keyboard

Recommended System Requirements

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7
  • CPU: Dual-Core CPU 2.5 GHz
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or ATI Radeon HD 6850 with 768MB+ of VRAM (DirectX 11 compatible)
  • Sound: Microsoft Windows XP/Vista or 7 compatible sound card (100% DirectX 9.0c-compatible)
  • DVD-ROM: Quad-speed (4x) DVD-ROM drive
  • Hard Drive: 17.5 GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows XP/Vista or 7 compatible mouse and keyboard or Xbox 360 Controller for Windows

And if you're still not sure, head over to the GPU Analyzer and Nvidia will tell you if and how well the game will run.

Ah, but you can on a low end PC, so it's win win.

I did get Batman: AC for free when I bought the GTX570, however, I do not like the ever increasing trend of release the console version first and then release the PC version a month later so they can DRM the hell out of it. I have B:AC on my Gamefly list and will be giving my code for the PC version to a friend. :D

I can spend £160, £260 or £360 upgrading to GTX560TI, GTX570 or GTX580. Or I could pay nothing and play it OnLive. Tough decision for me there.
