Bulletstorm PC specs: is that it?

Your machine stands a good chance.

Perhaps consoles aren't that powerful after all - Bulletstorm's PC system requirements are relatively pedestrian.

Recommended by Epic Games are a QuadCore 2.0 processor, 2GB RAM and a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 or ATI Radeon 4870 graphics card.

You'll also need 9GB free hard-drive space and, gosh, a 16 speed CD/DVD drive!

Turn those Bulletstorm settings to minimum and you'll only need an Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2 processor running at 1.6GHz to power the game. The lowest supported graphics cards are a 256MB NIVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS or ATI Radeon 2400 Pro cards. You're not advised to go below 1.5GB RAM.

Bulletstorm, a bonkers shooter that involves scoring points for over-the-top deaths and a fantastic electrical whip, is made by Epic Games studio People Can Fly. EA is publishing.

Wrote Christian Donlan for Eurogamer: "Bulletstorm is a shooter where you're looking for the juicy racing line that runs through each level. Its high score arcade ethos has been tried before - notably with love-'em-or-hate-'em oddities like The Club - but it's never been done with this kind of big-budget assurance and hillbilly humour. Fling that together with a single-player campaign packed with set-pieces and huge bosses and you can see why EA's excited about this one."
