In development on and off since 19977, Duke Nukem Forever is going to hit retail very soon.

According to Gearbox, the minimum specs needed to run Duke Nukem Forever will be Windows XP/Vista/7, 2GHz Intel Core 2 or 2.GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU, 1GB RAM, 10GB of hard drive space, 256MB of video RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 or ATI Radeon HD 2600 GPU and a DirectX-compatible sound card. Click past the break to find out what the recommended hardware specs to run this game is.
