Codemasters' latest racing sim Dirt 5 is releasing in a couple months on October 16th after being delayed by a week, but how demanding will the game be when it hits our PC systems? Will we need the horsepower of a high-end car engine to run smoothly? Let's take a look at the official PC system requirements for Dirt 5...
