Console gamers who are counting the days until BioShock Infinite is released on March 26 need to just sit back and wait for the day to arrive, but PC gamers might have to build entire new systems depending on the specifications a game like this would require to run. Even though PC gamers probably go through more trouble keeping their rigs updated, they’re probably one of the most hardcore gamers, especially when it comes to first-person shooters.

In a blog post on BioShock Infinite’s official site, Irrational Games’ Technical Director Chris Kline discussed the importance of PC as a platform for the company:

“Fifteen years ago, Irrational Games got its start making PC games, and the PC gaming experience has always been near and dear to our hearts. But it’s been a long time since we released the original BioShock, and PC gamers have come to expect a lot more for their money.”

PC gamers will have to make sure their systems are running the following in order to both run the game and get the best experience out of it:
