Can your PC run the new Need for Speed game?

21 September 2017
PC gaming is alive and well in 2017, despite numerous predictions over the decades that Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo would kill PC gaming. If anything, their growth has strengthened the PC gaming community.
 
However, the one biggest difference between PC gaming and console gaming is the fact that every single computer is different. For example, if you buy an Xbox and your friend buys an Xbox, they can play the same games, in the same quality, without any problem.
 
On the other hand, if you have a strong PC and your friend has a weak PC, they will struggle to play some of the bulkier games out there. Things like your graphics card, processor, and the amount of RAM you have on your machine all make a difference.
 
PC Gamers will have been excited to see that Need For Speed Payback is heading to their platform. Check out the trailer below:
 

 
But the real question is, can your PC run the game?
 
We had a look on the web and we've found the minimum requirements for the latest edition of the world's most popular racing game franchise. If your PC doesn't meet some of these specs, you might need to upgrade some of your parts.
 
The great thing about (most!) PCs is that you don't have to get a whole brand new device. You can actually just replace a specific part (e.g. your Graphics Card) or upgrade your RAM, which will be cheaper than an entire overhaul.
