Is there a need to? All System requirements in games these days are made up crap. Publishers just paste higher system reqs on their game each time to give the silly illusion that it looks better and improved *looks at COD.
Trust me, I've played plenty of modern games on my ancient PC to realize how much of BS system requirements are.

I have a 4770k/780 OC but I like to see what the devs think is needed and see how game performance measures up to those expectations.

I look occasionally, just to have an idea of specs needed.

I have a i5 3570K, R9 280X, 16gb of ram and somewhere around 300gb of space on my SSD and around 1,5tb on my HDD.

So no, I don't check system requirements.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.
