Players will need an Internet connection of at least 256 kbps download and 64kbps upload or faster.
Intel players will need, minimally, a 2.0 GHz Core2Duo, while our AMD players will need at least an Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+.
At least 2GB of RAM.
10 gigabytes of space free are required.
DVD-ROM drive required.
Players will need at least a 512 MB video card featuring either an NVidia 7800 or better, an AMD chipset of at least an ATI Radeon HD 2x00 or better, or an Intel Series 4 integrated graphics or better.
***NOTE: All the above-mentioned must also have a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support.
It is essential to the game’s performance and stability that the latest possible drivers for your video card are installed at all times.
You don't really need an optical drive if you buy it from Origin.
