We've had to wait a frustratingly long time for the original Devil May Cry trilogy to make its way to PC, but next month will be demon-slaying with the best of them, this time in glorious HD. For action fans, Devil May Cry HD Collection is a whole lot of ultra-balletic, fast-paced combat in a single package. Can your PC run Devil May Cry HD though? Find out with the Devil May Cry HD Collection PC specs.

We were spoiled yesterday by Sea of Thieves' system requirements, and it seems decidedly less care has been put into providing accurate for DMC HD Collection. We'll start with the minimum specs for Devil May Cry HD, which seem reasonable enough. You'll be needing a dual-core Core i3 CPU or equivalent, which just about everyone probably has. No issue there. It'll need to be backed up by 4GB RAM and a 12GB install for all three games.

Then we've got the GPUs. The GeForce GTX 760 and the Radeon R9 280 are about four years old now, so certainly showing their age somewhat, although they're only a minor step below the recommended graphics cards. As such, either Devil May Cry HD Collection doesn't have very many graphics options to mess around with, or you can actually get away with much weaker graphics cards. Considering this is just an HD rendering of the original, very old, games, and running on DX9 to boot, we'd estimate that something like a GeForce GTX 650 or Radeon HD 7750 shouldn't run into any major issues at lower resolutions. There's no guarantee on that front, but a GTX 760 does seem like a high minimum GPU.

Meanwhile, Devil May Cry Hd Collection's recommended CPUs really do kick things up a gear. Something equivalent to a Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8370 might be needed to high 60 frames per second, but again, it's difficult to envisage an older Core i5 having trouble.

As with any fast-paced character action like this though, it's almost imperative you target 60fps above all else in DMC for the best feeling gameplay. These games even hit 60fps on the PS2, so you can see how it was such a priority for Capcom. If that means dropping the graphics settings or the resolution, then this comes highly recommended.
