these next-gen games are designed with 8 threads so i7 cpu is recommended for pc gaming by 2015

these games are designed with 8gb memory (upcoming games are 7gb memory allocation) on consoles and on windows everything needs more so i recommend 16gb ram which are cheap anyways..it's always good to have headroom especially with windows 9 around the corner

1080p is phasing out and 4k gaming will be the new thing, with more monitors releasing in the coming year and at affordable respectable prices

2gb vram is phasing out and most next-gen cards will come standard with 4gb vram, like the upcoming next-gen video cards from amd and nvidia

anyone can think anything they want but remember pc gaming today is pretty much 360 and ps3 games (512mb ram) and these games require at least 4gb-6gb when played on ultra graphics on pc today..next-gen is a whole different story

so much denial and regret on this subject lmao

System requirements are always exaggerated out the ass by developers and PC enthusiasts alike.

My gaming PC is as low-end as can be (Phenom II quad core, 4gb RAM, Radeon 7750, 900p monitor) and I can run Tomb Raider on high @ 50-60 fps and Far Cry 3 @ 40-45 fps. Not on ultra. On high. Of course I have to sacrifice some graphical fidelity like disabling AA and post-processing, but the games still look gorgeous.

Pretty much this. I still have my 6870 from 2011 and it can still run most games on high at 30 frames.
