Medal of Honor PC specs revealed

Equipment check.

Electronic Arts has revealed the minimum and recommended hardware specifications for the PC version of Medal of Honor.

PC gamers will need at least a 3.2GHz Pentium D, a 2GHz Core 2 Duo or an Athlon 64 X2 processor, 2GB RAM, and a 256MB video card equivalent to or better than the GeForce 7800 GT or ATI X1900.

However, it's recommended that you rock up to Medal of Honor with a quad-core 2GHz chip, more than 2GB RAM, and a 512MB video card that's a GeForce GTX260, a ATI Radeon 4870 or something better.

Whatever else you have, you will need 9GB of hard disk space and DirectX 9.0c / DX10. And a CD/DVD drive, obviously, if you want to install it from a disc.

Medal of Honor is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 15th October. Check out our extensive single-player and multiplayer hands-on previews for more.

Call of Duty: Black Ops, Medal of Honor's main rival, is due out on 9th November on the same three formats, but developer Treyarch has yet to announce PC specs.
