Find out if your PC meets Max Payne 3's minimum requirements


We hope you just bought your computer today. Even better, we hope you were just about to go buy your computer, because otherwise you may have to have to turn some settings down in the PC version of Max Payne 3. Rockstar posted the system specs, including both recommended and required processors (it'll run on an Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ or an AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ, but Rockstar recommends an i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ or FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ). Find the full specs after the break.

Rockstar also announced pre-order incentives for the digital version at several shops, including Steam (Max Payne 1 and 2, multiplayer DLC for MP3) and Impulse (the two classic games, some multiplayer DLC, and an exclusive map). Find the full list of retailers with pre-order offers on Rockstar's site, and decide if any of them are worth the 35GB download.
