WildStar is an upcoming scifi MMORPG looking to win back the classic MMO players of yore, who've been abandoning subscription-play in droves in favour of the rise and rise of the MOBA.
There's been innumerable MMOs claiming to be the new World of Warcraft, but this new dev team comprising a number of ex-WoW, Fallout, Half-Life, and Diablo devs believe they've struck the winning combination. Before you can even think about playing it though, you're going to need to know if your rig is up to the demands of the WildStar system requirements...
WildStar Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows XP 32-bit with Service Pack 3
CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 or 2.4 GHz AMD Phenom X3 700e
RAM: 4GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or AMD Radeon HD 3850
DX: DirectX 9
HDD: 30 GB Free Hard Drive Space
WildStar Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: 2.13 GHz Intel Core i5-750 or 3.00 GHz AMD Phenom X4 940
RAM: 8 GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5830
DX: DirectX 11
In keeping with MMO tradition, these WildStar system requirements aren't overly demanding to get up and running. Getting as large an audience as possible to play their game is key here for Carbine Studios, so these minimum requirements for WildStar shouldn't pose too much of a problem to most.
The ever-reliable GeForce 8800 GT and the Radeon HD 3850 bring up the rear, while you're going to need a reasonable dual-core processor to get WildStar up and running. We suspect these requirements should be fine for normal gameplay, but should you be trying to get in on those all-important large-scale raids in WildStar then you're going to need a bit more under the hood.
Whatever the case, you're going to need to clear out some space for WildStar on your hard drive. It takes up a whopping 30GB, something that is happening all too often these days. Time to invest in that larger SSD soon I think!
For the recommended WildStar PC requirements the all-important 8GB RAM is required, something which we're now seeing in the majority of newly-announced big budget titles. It seems like 8GB's the future and it's here to stay.

Was a huge fan of WoW i might check this out if, unless its poorly optimized.
Requirements may not seem demanding, but i played beta and it was the worsed optimalized MMO i ever played. In comparison to ESO or GW2 it is twice more demanding. And there are lot of places with huge FPS drops. Right now it is no for all.
If it will stay in this state people with low rigs will stick to other MMOs. I know even some people with quite strong rigs that would say the same like me. This game needs a lot work before it will be playable for all like all MMOs.
If that game would have some realistic graphic i wouldn't mind but it has cartoon graphic...It can be twice less demanding and still look almost same.
Can't stand this Nvidia GeForce 8800 Gt trend
Because my gfx is not even close to it so I can't run some games :/
