Duke Nukem Forever's PC specs released

Gearbox has released the PC specifications for Duke Nukem Forever and, unfortunately, you won't quite be able to get away with a 14-year-old graphics card. PC players can squeak by with one gig of RAM and either an Nvidia GeForce 7600 or an ATI Radeon HD 2600. Sorry, but it looks like its finally time for an upgrade from that Voodoo Banshee.
