Left 4 Dead's system specs have arrived



3:22 PM on 09.26.2008

Unsure about which system you should buy Left 4 Dead for? Now that the system requirements for the PC version are floating around the net, that decision may become painfully obvious for those with ancient computers.

OS: Windows Vista, XP or 2000
CPU: 3.0 GHz P4, Dual Core 2.0 or AMD64X2 (or higher)
RAM: 1 GB for XP / 2GB for Vista
DISC DRIVE: DVD-ROM Drive
HARD DRIVE: At least 7.5 GB of free space
VIDEO: Direct X 9 compatible video card (Video card must be 256 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for pixel shader 2.0)
SOUND: Direct X 9.0c compatible sound card

Major props should be given to the Source engine once again for allowing the system specs to be as low as they are, but what's up with the hefty amount of HDD space required for installation? Where are we supposed to stash our porn now!?

Still can't make up your mind on the old console vs. PC debate? You've got until November 18 to decide.
