    6 GB of RAM MINIMUM? Holy fuck going all out I see.

  • fsdgasdg

    6gb of ram Minimum ? seems weird cause bo2 use like 1.5gb

  • Nikzvby

    50GB of HDD Space? Get dafuq outta here lol

    • Jon Cameron

      Well, it’s not like the game is going to be ~50GB.

      • ORB1T4L

        Yeah like 47.9Gb Bakara documentary and MGS4 game. 0% compression rate. 100% quality. Well, let’s not hope too much from the games, though…

    • Cell

      I think this amount includes DLC maps.

      • RdJokr

        Even if including DLC, this game shouldn’t go over 30 GB. Black Ops II with all DLCs only went up to 22GB total. I doubt that an engine overhaul would take up that much HDD space.

  • Diego Diniz

    I dont trust on this Source!

    • Francisco Silva

      Neither do I, 6gb ram and 50gb hard drive is too much for minimum spec, and this is not released by IW officialy

    • Primey_

      You don’t trust geforce? How can you not trust geforce?

      • Diego Diniz

        I Have ALL COD’s on my Steam account (COD4, WaW, MW2, BO1, MW3, BO2) and I know that Ghosts will come with some features like Tessellation and HDR Lightning, but nothing thats demands a GTX 780 to Run this game Fine! Sorry my bad english cause i’m Brazilian…

        • BudEagle26

          lol Your grammar is better than many people that only know English.

          • Diego Diniz

            Thanks Dude! Sometimes I speak english like a Brave Creek Indian… ahahaha

        • Marshall

          Dude your English is better than half the people on this website, haha.

      • Gomie

        Whatever you say, Brian Cranston.

        • Primey_

          You’re retarded.

    • LegitCryptic

      100% legit IW confirmed http://www.geforce.com/games-a

      • James K

        ‘Page not found’

  • Auptyk

    Despite my system clearing these easily, I have to say I am surprised. CoD has never been a resource hog. This is crazy.

  • Arnošt Kensei

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better…Lol….Thats BS :DD

    • ORB1T4L

      5870… this card stands among the best graphics cards on the market, though it’s only 150€ now 😉

      • Arnošt Kensei

        I have 7750..I am able to play Blops 2 without shadows on 100 average..And they saying that i actually can not run it on medium…Thats just BS..

  • Tom

    well thats me going to console..

  • Stick Man

    Well, they did say it would look better on PC….

    • JKB98

      I hope so. They said BO2 would look a lot better on PC, and it looked identical to the console versions.

      • RdJokr

        Technically, you get anti aliasing, so it’s still somewhat better than consoles.

        • JKB98

          I should have specified. I was referring to the textures.

          • RdJokr

            Well, that has always been COD’s weakness. But I think Ghosts will change that.

      • Dave Johnson

        But now they have got a partnership with nvidia

  • Cyber-Ninja

    These specs are legit:-


    Although I am fine , I can see some people getting urgent upgrades!!! ;O)

  • 3rdWorldMafia

    High specs…. See, children, this is why the Xbox 360 is better.

    [Insert PC elitist comment below]

    • Lucas Jackson

      I’m not a “Elitist” I own a 360, Wii, and had a PS3. I can tell you right now that those specs are not THAT “high” a standard computer comes with about 8GBs of ram, over a terabyte of space, a quad core (this game only needs a dual core to run), a GTX 550 Ti is NOT expensive, Direct X11 comes with all computers today and is downloadable for free. As for the Recommended card the GTX 780, I call bullshit on that because you don’t need a 780 to run Black Ops 2 completely maxed out at 60FPS. They were most likely talking about max settings with a 4K res and running higher than 60FPS if you want that then you should have a 780. I can tell you right now, a 250 dollars Graphics card can probably run ghosts on max settings 1080p over 30FPS with ease.

      • Lucas Jackson

        Though as everyone is saying, these specs are probably fake.

        • CloudyWolf

          yeah, hopefully cause given the nature of their publisher being asinine & trolls, much like another game company(cough, capcom, cough)…

      • .

        • Lucas Jackson

          CoD has NEVER been a power hog, your point is invalid, just because we are moving up to next gen, doesn’t mean CoD suddenly gets a JUMP in requirements. The game is using the SAME engine, and looks like Battlefield 3 a tad with it’s new graphics, but even Battlefield 3 is easy to run now on most computers.

          • You can’t claim that if they didn’t show gameplay on highest settings on PC.

          • Lucas Jackson

            *Facepalms* It will be like the last game. Black Ops 2 doesn’t take shit to run for its minimum requirements, with a game running on a SLIGHTLY MODIFIED Engine, from the last, I HIGHLY doubt Ghosts is going to suddenly need a GTX 780 to run at freaking max.

          • Oh right it’s the exact same engine not even slightly changed as BO2 so it will have the same system requirement how silly of me!

          • Lucas Jackson

            I repeat, These and A LOT of people agree, these minimum requirements are most likely WRONG.

          • ” SLIGHTLY MODIFIED ” False

          • Lucas Jackson

            How is that false? It’s a fact, they didn’t use a new one.

          • No, that’s a logical fallacy. You capitalized “slightly modified” to give the effect of emphasis on how slight the modification is. The reality is, it is a modified engine. How much? Who’s to say, Its creators , that’s about it

          • Lucas Jackson

            Slightly. From the looks of the game, and the mechanics, it’s obviously slightly.

      • andre jackson

        i have a ati 5760 1gb, amd atholoan 2×3, 2gb of ram and it run everything (block ops maxed out with 4gb of ram) so all i need is some more memory to run ghost i know that for sure

    • Primey_

      If you think those are high specs then you clearly don’t know anything about pc gaming you stupid dirty console peasant

    • Diego Diniz

      Go Play with your 60 FPS…I will play with 200 FPS or more

      • Lucas Jackson

        …20FPS isn’t playable….you clearly dont know much about your own console since it usually plays most games in AT LEAST 30FPS in the first place which is playable.

        • Diego Diniz

          I Said 200…not 20! I play with 2 HUNDRED FPS!!!

          • Lucas Jackson

            You clearly edited your post, it said 20, it’s why I had to REREAD your post twice before commenting.

        • RdJokr

          He said 200. Still, the normal human eye can’t see over 60 FPS anyway, so it’s pointless to play at that many FPS.

          • Lucas Jackson

            No he didn’t he said 20. You can EDIT your posts on here, he clearly changed it. But whatever.

  • TheGamerBeast

    woooow 50GB i think this will be with DLC Cz BF4 is just 30GB loool

    • ORB1T4L

      Maybe 50gb is just game data + reserved space for DLCs and title updates ?

      • Primey_

        All of that will still not reach 50GB. BF3 hardly reached 50GB and the maps in that were bigger in file size than the CoD maps.

  • Ed

    these seem a bit excessive for minimum specs.

  • Bigi345

    6 minimum GIGS OF RAM? Good thing i didn’t buy this for PC

    • ORB1T4L

      I’m sure 4gb would do the work.

    • Primey_

      Why not? Ram is not expensive. 8GB which is the recommend for a gaming pc won’t set you back a lot.

  • Primey_

    These specs don’t make sense at all. You’ll never reach 50GB with a CoD game even with title updates and DLC. It will never use the full power of a GTX 780 or 6GB of ram. They clearly picked out random numbers from a hat. Heck BF4 recommend 30GB and we all know BF maps and dlc are huge in size, always larger than CoD.

    • Brandalf

      I tend to agree, Battlefield games have massive sized patches and DLC. It’s common for a BF patch to be well over a gig and DLC pushing 4-7GB per expansion. I can’t even recall a COD DLC that cracked over 1GB. Granted I didn’t touch the DLC for BO2.

      That being said, DICE acknowledged the update sizes have been an issue for people with BF3, the lack of proper file compression is really what beefs up the size of those updates and installs.

      Regarding Ghosts it’s More than likely it’s just them being lazy and not taking out the massive amount of multiple copies of the same data required for BD due to their slow read speeds.

  • JellyMan

    WTF? Recommended GTX 780? That is total BS not even BF4 has that high requirements….I should be able to play it with my 770 but…..

  • mckevstah

    No way will it need a 780,.. it bets not anyway.
    And 50gb of space? fucking no way! i need a new hard drive if that the case!

    • Lightning1432

      Too much porn on that terabyte hard drive? 😛

      • fsdgasdg

        SSD baby.

        • Toastie

          Too much pr0n on your SSD then Baby? 😀

          • ORB1T4L

            Fastest porn files access = Priority dedicated SSD.

  • Jacky Liang

    Damn. I built this PC last year with a 560, and upgraded to a 670 for the games that came out that year. I thought I’d be future-proofed for CoD for the next five years (I’m not kidding!), but wow – 780 huh? IW going all out on the PC? Hopefully this is as a result of the improved engine and graphics, and not a result of poor optimization :p

    • ben wills

      It’s defo poor optimization. BF4 doesn’t even require that, and it has A LOT more going on that looks better than Ghosts. Looks like IW gave us a lazy port again. It’s like they get a grade 2 to button map and pay them a fruit snack and call it a day.

  • CloudyWolf

    I call bullshit…even BF4’s minimum doesn’t even need this high…those numbnuts at nvidia probably messed up the recommended specs with the minimum one…probably da same idiots who are working in their customer service….

  • CloudyWolf

    well, i already pre-ordered it…sucks to be me…if those jack-asses at “infinity wart” don’t optimize it well for the PC then this will be my FINAL CoD…they can kiss this fan & his money goodbye…titanfall here i come…

  • Azzzi

    Do you guys know if my new pc has a good enough graphics card

    • Azzzi

      Ati 6950 2gb
      With 16gb ddr3 ram

      • Marcus

        It does, and i bet these are not final requirements, they seem a bit excessive for Minimum specs!

  • Jacob

    there is no f*cking way that these are the minimum system requirements bf4 demands less this is probably recommended

  • Cell

    Bring it on!! 1TB of space, HD 6870×2, 12gb RAM.

  • Do you smell that?Yea things are wrong here

  • Pedro

    gtx780 recommended, wtf ?

  • TepidBlack

    Haha is this a joke? Games that look 5 times better than Ghosts run on specs worst than these, are they completely incapable of optimization?

  • Dave

    Something isn’t right over here! 6 GB of RAM? Ridiculous!

  • Diego Diniz

    I have 8GB of RAM, I Have 50GB on my HD, but i change my HD5870 for a GTX 760. I will NOT able to max out this Game on Multiplayer??? I think GTX 780 is for SINGLEPLAYER Campaign…
    GTX 760 will handle it on MULTIPLAYER, i guess…

    • The complete opposite.

      • Diego Diniz

        You think Multiplayer demands more than Singleplayer???
        I just got my GTX 760… lets see the performance…

  • SkillN
    • Cyber-Ninja

      Are you sure that their fake??? LOL ;O)

  • Travis Cleary

    Well, I’m safe! 🙂

    > 6GB of RAM… I have 32GB DDR3
    > 50GB HDD… I have 6TB + 120GB SSD (OS Booting)
    > Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ… I have I7-3770 2.34GHz
    > NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550… I have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
    > Windows 7 Professional, 64-Bit

    Now, I just have to wait and see what the ‘Official’ recommended Spec-Requirements are! 😮

    • perfectlemonade

      How much did that cost you?

      • Travis Cleary

        Ummm… I think it was around $3000. Not including my Keyboard/Mouse, Headset, Gamepad, Speakers, and 2x 26″ Monitors… I have since then bought another 120GB SSD and Windows 8, 64-Bit… Only for Halo Spartan Assault and for my Xbox 260/One (When it launches).

  • god

    4k texture that is why

    • ORB1T4L

      Yeah, in our dreams bro…

  • Primey_

    Yep, the specs are fake http://puu.sh/4Lsg1.png

  • a
  • James K

    Yeah those requirements are not official.


  • AsusROG

    You guys HAVE to think of this as advertisement. Not a lot of people keep up to date with infinity ward, how would they know these aren’t the real specs? People that think it’s real and are already buying a 649$ GPU are just giving Nvidia and allianced brands more money. They might even be paying Infinity ward to not clarify the real specs/Not inform us it isn’t real.

  • Cactus Jones

    Holy fuck GTX 780?

  • Diego Diniz

    All I want to know is: my GTX 760 will handle COD Ghosts with ALL Settings on Maximmum??? I’m afraid…

    • abhi

      dont worry ur card will run ghosts on maximum..its just marketing gimmik to sell gtx 780 cards

  • abhi

    i dont trust rubin when he says server browser available after launch..coz david from treyarch also fooled ppl by saying that its dedicated servers for pc..yeah it is but its not with server browser..it is the same hybrid server what rubin confirmed what black ops 2 have on pc right now..which is the worst system ever

  • JuggerNaut

    It seems that those specs are true..

  • daniel

    i have 3tb and 16gb ram.

  • Smit Rathod

    Will it work in directx 10.1?

  • Can barely run on minimum, great.

  • Diego Diniz

    Still afraid, my GTX 760 will MAX OUT this Game 1080p???

  • Kyr95

    i have everything except the video card.i have the 6660 Ti .will it be enough? Please, someone who knows answer me.i just bought it in may for metro last light and i cant afford to buy a new one

    • Diego Diniz

      Same Problem here! I just bought a GTX 760 and a new Monitor…if my GTX 760 do not Max Out the Game, thats makes me CRAZY!!!

      • Kyr95

        i think you will be okay man,but when i bought the 660 Ti they told me that this video card would play on max settings all games for the next 3 years!!But i should be able to play cod normally right?

        • Diego Diniz

          You will play normally, but I dont know if we can Play with ALL Settings on Maximum 1080p…

          • Joris Woltman

            Depends on the brand GPU that you have. Not all 660 Ti’s are the same, some have a better core clock and/or a bigger memory size then other 660 Ti’s.

  • a

    Faaaaakkk they confirmed it. Dammit!

  • reza k
