PC gamers: Get ready to feel inadequate. EA has just released the minimum/recommended requirements for running Crysis 3.

A new Crytek game has always signaled the dawn of a new standard in graphical capability, as well as the realization that it’s time to upgrade you computer. Crysis 3 looks to be no exception. Here’s the breakdown:

DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM
Dual core CPU
2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)

Needless to say, there aren’t too many people who are going to be running Crysis 3 on ‘ultra’ settings right off the bat. Then again, everything listed above is currently existing technology so it’s at least a possibility as opposed to when the first game came out.

Crysis 3 is due for release in February 2013. While you wait, hit the jump for some ‘Cry-Candy’.
