Metro 2033 Specs

THQ's Metro 2033 Page now offers system specifications for the upcoming post-apocalyptic shooter, offering three sets of specs: minimum, recommended, and optimal, as well as a set of specs to support NVIDIA's 3D Vision. They also say: "We also recommend the biggest and best monitor you can afford, and a home cinema kit or surround sound headphones!" CPU specs range from any Core 2 Duo or better to a Core i7 and video card specs go from DirectX 9, Shader Model 3 compliant graphics cards to a DirectX 11 compliant graphics card. On a related note, there's a Metro 2033 interview on Eurogamer focusing on technical aspects of the game and its engine and there's also an interview on VG247 that concentrates more on gameplay. The full specs follow.
