 Windows 7 32/64 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 32/64 Service Pack 2, Windows XP 32/64 Service Pack 3

Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ – i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ / AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ – FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ

16GB of RAM? GTX 680? 35GB of space? Holy cow.

    wth, the game looks good but not that good that a gtx 680 is recommended. even crysis 2 doesnt ask that crazy specs

    This is most likely a misunderstanding. Rockstar meant those “gtx 680, 16gb ram” as a 
    “minimum to highest” profitable set up. I don’t believe games can take much more than that to be played in a non surround system
