On the fence about which platform you should be buying Skyrim on? We’ve got you covered. Bethesda today announced the minimum and recommended system requirements for the upcoming RPG. The good news? It’s pretty reasonable for a modern gaming PC, especially when you compare it to the recently released mammoth that goes by the name of Battlefield 3.

Let’s be honest, a game as good as this, you’re gonna want the visuals to look nothing short of fantastic. If you can’t come close to the recommended specs, you could always opt for the console version. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
