Full system requirements for Mass Effect 3 reported on Jan-19-2012

Biowares, Chris Priestly has announced the Mass Effect 3 system requirements and ME3 Demo date.

The ME3 demo will be with us in mid Feb but lets take a look at some Mass Effect 3 details, the exact demo date and the full Mass Effect 3 system requirements...

Mass Effect 3 Minimum System Requirements

OS - Windows XP SP3/Vista SP1, Win 7

CPU - 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (equivalent AMD CPU)

RAM - 1GB for XP / 2GB RAM for Vista/Win 7

HDD - 15 GB of free hard disk space

GFX RAM - 256 MB* (with Pixel Shader 3.0 support)

Audio - DirectX 9.0c compatible

DX - DirectX 9.0c August 2009 (included)

*Supported chipsets: NVIDIA 7900 or better; ATI X1800 or better.  Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 9300, 8500, 8400, and 8300 are below minimum system requirements, as are AMD/ATI Radeon HD3200, HD3300, and HD4350.   Updates to your video and sound card drivers may be required.


Mass Effect 3 Recommended System Requirements

OS - Windows XP SP3/Vista SP1, Win 7

CPU - 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (equivalent AMD CPU)

RAM - 2GB for XP / 4GB RAM for Vista/Win 7

HDD - 15 GB of free hard disk space

GFX -  AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB or greater, NVidia GeForce 9800 GT 512 MB or greater

GFX RAM - 512MB (with Pixel Shader 3.0 support)


Finally, dont forget ME3 will use Origin, EA's download platform and their answer to Valve's Steam service. Origin will be installed on your computer during your game setup. 

Demo

The Mass Effect 3 Demo will be with us on or close to Feb 14th 2012. It will be coming to all platforms around that date but may shift slightly depending on the platform and the geo location.

The single player section includes 2 areas: the opening level featuring the Reaper attack on Earth, and a level further into the game where Shepard travels to an alien home world to seek their assistance in the war effort. This will be approximately 1 to 2 hours of content.The co-op multiplayer section includes 2 maps: Slum and Noveria.  This section will be open to players who have qualified for the early multiplayer access as of Feb 14, and will then open up to all players on Feb 17.

Question - Can I import saves from Mass Effect 2? Does the demo create a save game for the full version of Mass Effect 3? The demo does not support save importing and does not create a save game for the full version of Mass Effect 3.

Will playing the Mass Effect 3 demo spoil the main game story for me? The single player section of the Mass Effect 3 demo is taken from the main game and therefore by definition could be considered to contain spoilers. The multiplayer section of the demo does not contain spoilers.

Jan-14-2012 It seems like EA is intent on making everyone use their new Origin program. In order to play their big 2011 release Battlefield 3 Origin was required. Apparently EA want more users, so their next big ...

How well could I run this? When I check my NVidia Ctrl Panel, under ME3, it says 'Not Recommended' and then says "some objects render at wrong depth. Some effects render incorrectly"
My GTX 650 Ti boost SC is only the 1 Gb version
