The next chapter in the Elder Scrolls saga, Skyrim is just two weeks away from release and if you plan on picking up the action RPG for your PC, here’s what you’ll need to run under the hood.

Recommended:

DirectX 9 compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with 1GB of RAM (Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon 4890 or higher).

The 6GB of space required is not a typo. Apparently Bethesda has devised a ninja way to compress game data. I only hope this doesn’t come at the cost of low resolution textures. Either way, we’ll get to know once the game releases for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC by the 11th of this month.
