After the announcement of the ‘gold’ status of Fallout 3, Bethesda posted on the official site the minimum and recommended system requirements. Without further comments:

Minimum System Requirements:

  • Windows XP/Vista
  • 1GB System RAM (XP)/ 2GB System RAM (Vista)
  • 2.4 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
  • Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 256MB RAM (NVIDIA 6800 or better/ATI X850 or better)

Recommended System Requirements:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo processor
  • 2 GB System RAM
  • Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA 8800 series, ATI 3800 series)

If you wonder why DirectX 9.0c and not DirectX 10, remember that Fallout 3 has the same engine as Oblivion.
