View Full Version : System requirements for upcoming Jedi Knight 2?

08-16-2001, 10:21 AM
I'm considering getting a new computer and I was wondering what elements I'd need for a PC to play the upcoming Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast. I'm not very knowledgable about the technical elements of video cards and stuff, but I'll try to keep up.

Thanks for any help. :)

The minimum requirements should be around, 550mhz pentium compatable, 128mb ram, 16mb video card, and alot of disk space. :D Keep in mind, it probably wont run very well on a system lke that. You'll want to at least upgrade the video card to a 32mb,"Geforce 2 perhaps?" to get it to run relatively smooth.

I'd better start counting my pennies for a new computer.

I'm probably going to need a miracle to save up that much money before the game comes out.

Interesting, thanks for the info Rhett. I'm having a hard time deciding on a video card, I want 64 vid ram, but I don't want to spend too much. Any ideas?

Those are some lofty goals for my PC. But it's worth a try.

Well, you could get a Voodoo5 64mb card but the problem is that they don't support that card anymore. :D But it is probably the cheapest 64mb card out right now.

If I was buying one and really wanted a 64mb card but was keeping price in mind I would go for a Nvidia geforce2 64mb. You can get one on ebay for a pretty good price. I'd stay away from any Ati products. They may be dying soon. :o

If price is not a factor go ahead and get a Nvidia Geforce 3 64mb card or wait a few months for the 128mb card. :D

Just go to htp://www.pricewatch.com and check out computer component prices. You don't have to buy a new computer. Most of you can upgrade your old PC to 1 GHz P4 for a couple hundred bucks, and memory is cheaper than dirt right now (seriously, go down to Lowes and buy a few hundred Megabytes, err... pounds of dirt).

Current prices:
P4 1.3 GHz MB+CPU = $239
512 MB PC133 SIMM = $27
GForce 2 64MB = $48
