Duke Nukem system specs revealed

You can tell a PC release is getting close when the developers send out the system specifications. In the case of Duke Nukem Forever, it's been a long time coming. Gearbox released the full specs today, along with a reminder that it will require Steamworks authentication on the PC.

The requirements don't seem too taxing, but they won't run on the machine you bought for the game back in 1998. The game's latest delay slates it for a June 14 release.
