Following the recently announced Football Manager 2009 demo which will be released this Sunday by SI Games and Sega, the developers of the beloved football management game have released the system specifications your PC should have in order to run Football Manager 2009. In the official statement, it is mentioned that these are the recommended system requirements for both the demo and the full version of the game.

So, without further ado, here they are:
Processor: XP: 1.4GHz or Faster / Vista: 2.0GHz or Faster
Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core, AMD Athlon
Memory: XP: 512MB RAM / Vista: 1.0GB RAM
Hard Drive Space: 2GB
DVD-Drive: 4x Speed
Video Card: 128MB  (Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater. Earlier cards may only display 2D Match)
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
Directx: Version 9.0c (included)
LAN: TCP/IP compliant

As usual, the system requirements to run Football Manager are not at all high – we were actually expecting them to be a bit higher, having in mind that this year we’ll have, for the first time, a full 3D match engine in a FM game. But it’s all for the good of the genre: the lower the requirements, the more people can enjoy this upcoming title.
