As you can see, they’re really widening the playing field by including XP SP 3, so gamers on the almost obselete operating system can play. If you have a gaming rig, you’re going to have (or at least, should have) an i5 of around 3GHz, so you should be covered, but the important thing here is it’s very recommended to have a graphics card with at least 1GB of RAM.
