Those potty-mouthed kids from South Park are set to make their  RPG debut next month, dabbling in arcane wizardry and having extensive discourses with conversational turds.

South Park: The Stick of Truth follows the emergence of a new savour from the perilous battlegrounds of a fourth-grade playground, waging a part in the neverending war over The Stick of Truth. Graphically, it's looking to stick identically to its television counterpart. The Stick of Truth promises f-bombs, gratuitous farting and close-to-the-bone stereotyping aplenty. So, let's see what rig you're going to need to match the South Park: Stick of Truth recommended requirements...

 

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP 32-bit, with Service Pack 3

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5 GHz or Athlon X2 Dual Core 5600+

RAM: 1.5 GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT or AMD Radeon HD 3870

DX: DirectX 9.0c

HDD: 6GB available hard drive space

 

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 32-bit Edition and upwards

CPU: 2.67 GHz Core i5 750 or 2.6GHz AMD Athlon II X4 645

RAM: 2 GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 1GB or AMD Radeon HD 4870

HD: 6GB hard drive space

As expected, South Park: The Stick of Truth is a fairly undemanding game. The 2D graphics mean that this is one game that shouldn't be particularly taxing on any gaming PC bought during the last five years or so. The memory demands in particular aren't very demanding at all, requiring just 1.5GB of RAM to get it running at minimum requirements and only 2GB to hit the recommended. 

The South Park: The Stick of Truth processor requirement is also pretty low, needing just a dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, which should be fairly commonplace by now. By that token the GPU requirements are also fairly minimal. Unfortunately the trusty GeForce 8800GT won't quite cut it here, meaning you're going to need the next generation 9800 GT at a minimum to get it running. For those wanting to run South Park: The Stick of Truth on recommended system settings then you're going to the GTX 260 or its AMD equivalent the Radeon HD 4870.

South Park: The Stick of Truth will be a turn-based RPG based on an extremely basic-looking TV show, so when it comes to the requirements we'd expect gaming rigs at the lower end of the South Park system requirements to be more than capable of playing the game. Players won't be required to make rapid inputs or choices so a smooth frame rate in The Stick of Truth most likely won't be necessary to enjoy it to its full potential. Provided you've got a decent enough video card to get the no doubt endless slew of cutscenes playing, you should be set. So stock up on the cheesy poofs, crank up your copy of Chocolate Salty Balls, and start playing some f**king South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Remind me again what the performance difference is between an 8800GT and a 9800GT?

8800 GT is comparable to a 9600 GT or something and 9800 GT is comparable to GTS 240... Their is actually quite a performance difference between the two...

I think architecturally they are exactly the same card, but the 9800GT has a die shrink. They run at the same speeds with the same amount of shaders.
This website shows that they are very close in performance http://www.hwcompare.com/

Yeah I looked it up and the 9800 GT is basically a tweaked and better performing 8800 series GPU...

This has to be a joke... This game will run maxed out on those "minimum system" specs... Even GeForce 210 and Intel HD 2000 will run this comfortably (depending on the settings)...
