If like me you're counting the days until Watch Dogs is released here are the all important system requirements , looks like an upgrade is order as my GTX 460 comes in on the minimum requirements


To see this game at its best you will need a monster rig but I guess we all expected that ....

I thought my 460 was ok but it seems the times they are a changing with the impending arrival of the next gen consoles , an upgrade is no longer an option I think a complete new build is required ... I'm going to run out of body parts before I can play it

Yeah AMD has a pretty cheap 8 core. Intel should be coming out with the 12 core here pretty soon. I'll probably snag that up.
Just watch Newegg for the deals!

My home rig and laptop can handle it but barely. Looks like next year I'll need an upgrade. It's funny because when I built my pc I was under the impression I had awhile before I needed to upgrade. Boy was I wrong with the new games coming out.

I hear ya mate , as rangerdanger said there are some reasonable AMD 8 core CPUs out there but for me and many others that means new motherboard and ram , plus a new card to go with that loveliness

You can play it on a quad core...one of the examples given for the recommended requirements is an i7 3770...that's quad. I know, because that's what i have. That processor isn't too expensive. I think you can get it for under 300.00.

Okay... I'm sold. In love. I'll just have to trade walking to school in November to get the gas money out of the budget for the game.


Watch Dogs Trailer

I'd say from about 6:30 on is where it gets active for a shooter and ..oh, nice..I love the interactivity. The hacking looks more fun than anything. The trailer shows it beautifully in two spots from that point on.

I know what my Xmas present is. Now...I need to save for a water cooler on my GPU. That sucker will have it becoming the heat problem.

If you are going to upgrade you can stick with a decent card under 200 bucks to play but I would recommend something that will stay valid much longer. I'd suggest a gtx 700 series. I use a gtx 570 myself and it's runs bf3 perfectly but bf4 will be a whole new story and hell hopefully gta 5 pc is BEAUTIFUL and has high requirements as well.

here is the new AMD flag GPU



94c approximately, about 280watt as a reference (imagine the OC or dual fan for cooling editions) and very big noise. More than the very good old gtx480....

But its strong enough.

An AMD 8 core cpu, is equivalent to an intel 4 core / 8 threads cpu and they are not that powerful... AMD cpus don't have threads (the cores are not divided). But amd have improved the last couple of years, after bulldozer disaster...

Don't waste your money for more than 4 cores, you just need 2 or 4, nothing more because games and software aren't developed for that so you're just wasting your money. AMD can't catch up with their processors, but their videocards lately have been superior for the price over nvidia. If you want to match the recommended settings, you'll just need to spend about $400 for the parts given that you buy everything on sale, which would take about a week or two to find those parts and cyber monday is around the corner...

I'm really happy this game is coming out for the PC as well, it's the only ps4 game i was really looking forward to.

Well the good news (for me) is it's been delayed from November 2013 until Spring 2014 so plenty of time to sort my new computer out ready for launch , sometimes delays can be good news
