You think your gaming PC can handle a game like Ubisoft Montreal's Assassin's Creed with its astounding visuals? Rumors regarding its minimum and recommended requirements have surfaced, and if these are true, it seems the bird of prey will be eat up a lot of resources.
To be fair, Assassin's Creed is no Crysis. It can probably run on year-old systems, as long as it's on a dual core processor with 2GB of RAM. For many, it's a no-brainer that it'll require a decent Direct3D 10 compatible video card with at least 256MB memory. You also have to make sure there's 16GB of free space.
For the enthusiast with high-end gaming machines, Assassin's Creed's recommended specs may not be that steep, but other gamers still complain saying these rumored requirements are beyond what should be able to make Altair move smoothly.
