Max Payne 3 PC System Specifications
Operating System: Windows 7 32/64 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 32/64 Service Pack 2, Windows XP 32/64 Service Pack 3

Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ - i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ / AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ - FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ

RAM: 2GB - 16GB

Video Card: NVIDIA 8600 GT 512MB VRAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB VRAM / Radeon HD 3400 512MB VRAM - Radeon HD 7970 3GB VRAM

Sound Card: 100% Direct X 9.0 compatible Direct X 9.0 compatible supporting Dolby Digital Live

HDD Space: 35 GB

I hate when they list system requirements like this, they just list the lowest hardware itl run on and just put in the newest available hardware for maximum required. In reality im pretty sure you wont need all those absolute top of the line hardware to run it properly on maximum settings =.=. I mean seriously, for processor a i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ and FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ wut?, im pretty sure the game wont be needing those at all..
And for video card a 680 and 7970 lol again wut?, im pretty sure a GTX560ti/570 will do fine even.

Unless this is a steaming pile of unoptimized *

Did you play GTA IV when it first came out on PC?

Yeah GTAIV was a horrible mess with optimization so incredibly poor that it was like they didn't even bother, something Rockstar has had a bad habit of over the last several years. MP3 could be the same case.

The "specs" listed were more like a list of what's supported.

Looks like its just a list of whats supported. They posted this on facebook

" Hey guys, to be clear these are a range of specs and the game will look great on anything that's listed. Also, yes there's a 35GB install, between the epic multiplayer modes, the single-player story, and all the graphics fully optimized for PC, this is a big game get ready!"

I read on Kotaku that the PC running on Low will equal console visuals. Those 35 gbs are well worth it gentlemen. And yes, this is just a list of everything that is compatible with the game, not minimum+recommended.

It's for the 2k textures mostly. Uncompressed, it would be about 1 TB like RAGE was before compression.

lol....the specs are absurd but as others have mentioned most likely just a noob spectrum they gave us....

Guys, it's just a range of spec the game is supporting, these are not the "recommanded specs"
