DiRT 2 demands DX11, Intel Core i7 for maximum sexiness

Now DiRT 2 may not be the prettiest racing game ever, but it’s quite the sight to behold. And with the PC version of the off-road racer supporting DirectX 11, it’s going to be even more stunning.

If you or someone you know has a PC capable of handling DiRT 2 at the highest possible settings, you can expect the logical opposite of the Nazi face melting scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark to ensue. I know it’s hard to envision, but you can do it.

As spotted by Shacknews, the PC requirements are officially out:

Recommended Specifications: Enhanced for DirectX 11
OS – Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
Processor – Intel Core i7 or AMD Phenom II
Memory – 3GB
HD Space – 10GB
Video Card – ATi Radeon HD 5700 Series

Minimum Specifications:
OS – Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
Processor – Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz or AMD Athlon 64 3400+
Memory – 1GB (2Gb for Windows Vista)
HD Space – 10GB
Video Card – ATI Radeon X1500 or NVIDIA GeForce 6800

It’s also worth noting this version utilizes Games for Windows LIVE. If you haven’t already, go seek out and play DiRT 2, even if you can only do so on a console.
