First up, we can see that it still works on Windows XP, which is good for some users who are running the much older operating system. Secondly, minimum requirements are that you have a dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT. But, the goodness lays in what it ranges up to, not minimum requirements.
Rockstar have actually put it in text right there, that Max Payne 3 scales right up to the latest and greatest Intel Core i7 3930K 6-core processor, as well as NVIDIA and AMD's latest and greatest DX11-powered GPUs, the GEFORCE GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970. This is great news. The latest screenshots to go with it show an insane amount of detail on the characters, environments, and guns. Let's hope the in-game graphics look this good, because if they do, it's high time you get excited!
