It looks like someone has leaked out the minimum system requirements for the upcoming Far Cry 2 release; and they actually aren’t all that bad.  The absolute minimum includes an Athlon 64 3500+, Pentium D 2.4 GHz or higher, 1 GB of memory and a GeForce 6800 or ATI X1650 graphics card.  The full experience will require a bit more of you: Core 2 Duo or Phenom, 2GB of memory, 8600 GTS or X1900 GPU or better with a 512MB frame buffer.
Ubisoft has revealed the minimum and respectable suggested system requirements for its upcoming FPS / wildfire simulator, Far Cry 2. Let’s just say that if your current rig had trouble running Crysiswell, it’s a far cry from being able to handle FC2.

Oh, and just because previous series-dev Crytek is currently designing Crysis Warhead to run well on $600 systems doesn’t mean that its new caretakers at Ubisoft are giving up the war against two-week-old PC components. You’ll find the full shopping list rundown of requirements after the break.
