the game requires
GPU: 6600 series or better with at least 256MB of RAM
RAM: 512MB or better
HDD space: 8 gigs
OS: XP or Vista
Processor: Pent 4 or higher
these are the minimum settings

My PC specs are
GPU: SLI 8800 GT 512MB
RAM: 4 gigs DDR2 800Mhz
OS: Vista
Processor: Q6600 overclocked to 3.2Ghz(not taking a risk of making it higher atm without liquid cooling o.o)
I run the game on DX9 at about 75 fps constant and in DX10 about 55-65 fps on average. The game doesn't require a very high PC to still look good so don't be discouraged about if buying it for PC or console is a better choice I have friends who play the game with Nvidia Geforce 7 series cards and it runs decent on medium settings and still looks decent to enjoy the gameplay/visual experience.

run the DX9 version if you have vista/DX10 card. really helps with frame rate. i have a 5.3 system rating and i'm running the DX9 version on max settings hitting an average of 50 FPS on the demo.

specs of my machine.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3.1 Ghz
4GB DDR2 Ram
ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT 512 MB

Not true, here are my bench results from the demo that's been out for some time now.

Bench results.

DX version: DX10
OS: Vista Home Premium 64-bit
Resolution: 1920x1200
MSAA: None
Detail/Shadow/Texture options: Maximum


Test 1: AVG 101.25FPS
Test 2: AVG 77.30
Test 3: AVG 120.51
Test 4: AVG 67.31

AVG = average framerate


DX9 results

DX version: DX9
OS: Vista Home Premium 64-bit
Resolution: 1920x1200
MSAA: None
Detail/Shadow/Texture options: Maximum


1) 109.09
2) 76.52
3) 131.13
4) 78.68

Visually the DX10 mode has better lighting, much better shadows (no flicker either), and significantly better motion blur. Given the minimal impact on framerate (negligible to be quite honest), there's no reason to use the DX9 version if you have DX10 hardware and Vista; especially given that there is a rather noticeable difference in image quality between DX10 and 9.

Test system:
Core 2 Extreme X6800 @ 3.33GHz (10 multi x 333MHz FSB)
FSB 333MHz for effective quad data rate of 1333MHz
4GB PC2 8500 1066MHz RAM @ 1333MHz
nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB (GPU @ 800MHz, RAM at 2.2GHz)
Dell 24" LCD with native resolution of 1920x1200
PC Power & Cooling 1KW PSU
Auzentech Xplosion 7.1 Dolby Digital and DTS Connect sound card connected via TOS link to Yamaha 7.1 DDEX/DTSES receiver
Asetek Waterchill Xternal for CPU/Chipset
Thermalright HR-03 GT heatsink and 92mm fan for 8800 GTS
Tai-Chi case by Thermaltake

Some people who own Vista are having probs though with memory usage. My buddy runs Vista home premium with 3 gigs of RAM and right when he boots up the PC it's already using 1.2GB of RAM He can run games at max settings but only at about 25-30 fps which is decent for some games. I installed DMC4 to see how it would run on his and he lagged a bit with DX10 it just depends on what kind of GPU you have cause the DX10 cards such as 8600 256MB or the 8800 with 256MB of RAM don't cut it with just using one for some of the games coming out nowdays. Although by no means am I saying if you have the hardware dont' use it :P I know I am.

The out of memory errors in Vista have more to do with how Vista handles memory, since the kernel and several subsystems are different than the old NT kernel in XP and Win2K/2003. The easiest solution is to use a 64-bit version of Vista (if you have a 32-bit version of Vista, just use the built in upgrade feature and ask Microsoft to send you a 64-bit disc for S&H costs alone, your serial will work with both version, one at a time only, of course) since this overcomes the RAM limitation of the 32-bit software. As Vista lumps all RAM into a single system heap, video cards with more RAM have an even greater impact in terms of addressing limitations (I feel sorry for 32-bit Vista users that opt for the 2GB Radeon 4870X2 when it ships).
