thief system requirementsIf you haven’t played PC games recently, the Thief system requirements that have just been confirmed will probably shock you. From the HDD space required (and clearly the easiest thing to have) to quad-core processors, the new set of PC games brings the real Next Gen to desktop computers too. Just take a look at the Thief System Requirements and you’ll see what we mean:

Thief Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista with platform update
  • CPU: High-performance dual core CPU or quad core CPU
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 4800 series / Nvidia GTS 250
  • DirectX: DirectX 10
  • HDD/SSD: 20 GB

Thief Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8
  • CPU: AMD FX 8000 series or better / Intel i7 Quad Core CPU
  • RAM: 4+ GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD / R9 series or better / Nvidia GTX 660 series or better

Most probably, some of the gamers out there will have to upgrade a little bit if they want to play Thief on maximum settings, but the good news is that we have so many great PC games coming in 2014 that it might be worth the investment.
