This year's edition of FIFA finally brings the PC version of the game in line with the superior PS3 and Xbox 360 games. Thankfully, this increase in graphical fidelity hasn't resulted in recommended system specifications likely to score an own goal with fans.

Confirmed recommended system specs:

- Core2Duo 2.4 Ghz

- 2GB ram

- 8800GT or a Radeon HD3870

We're certainly not talking cutting edge hardware then, and there's even better news for PC gamers running rigs on life support. PC producer Ian Jarvis has told that FIFA 11 will "work on a slightly lower-end machine as well".

FIFA 11 is scheduled for release on October 1, 2010. Check out our hot off the press preview right here.
