Sometimes, I feel like I'm writing the same story twice since history does tend to repeat itself. In this case, I literally am! Those minimum system specs for Call of Duty: Ghosts have been finalized by Infinity Ward and there's just enough changed that I figured it'd be worth a mention. Here goes.
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 40 GB
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
Sound: DirectX compatible sound card
DirectX: DirectX 11
Internet: Broadband Internet connection for Steam and Online Multiplayer.
Most notably, Infinity Ward was able to shave off 10GB from the hard drive space requirement. Every little bit helps. The final specs also list the GeForce GTS 450 where previously, the GTX 550 Ti was the GPU given.
