GeForce 7600 will handle Duke Nukem Forever

Who knew this dinosaur would still be playing games in 2011. You can all breath a collective sigh of relief; well at least those of you who haven’t upgraded your gaming rig in 5 years.

The PC hardware requirements for the upcoming 3D Realms shooter Duke Nukem Forever have been made available, and frankly it looks like a hardware cakewalk from here. It may not provide you with ample grunt to run everything on the highest settings, but according to the specs a 5-year old Nvidia GeForce 7600 will be enough to get you through at least some semblance of a game.

Minimum:

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.0 Ghz
  • Graphics: NIVIDIA GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon HD 2600
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Hard Drive: 10GB

Recommended:

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.6 Ghz
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS / ATI Radeon HD 3850
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Hard Drive: 10GB

Duke Nukem Forever is coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on June 10th internationally, and the US 4 days later on June 14th. You can  pre-order the game on PCXbox 360 and PS3 from Amazon.
