Max Payne PC System Sepcs News: Think your PC can run Max Payne 3? Rockstar Games' PC system requirements might say otherwise.
The system requirements for the PC version of Max Payne 3 were recently revealed and it seems like you are going to need a top-of-the-line machine if you want to experience everything as Rockstar intended. For better or worse, you'll have a little more time to improve your gaming rig, as the company just delayed the Max Payne 3 PC release date to June 1.
The original Max Payne was released in July 2001 with a sequel hitting in 2003. These titles introduced Max Payne, a New York City cop who was going through the worst time in his life after his family was murdered one fateful evening. Max Payne can also be credited for popularizing "Bullet Time"? in games - a form of slow motion that slows down your enemy but allows Max Payne to react and aim in real time. After many years Rockstar has revealed that the PC version of Max Payne 3 will launch simultaneously worldwide on June 1. Developed in parallel with the console versions, Max Payne 3 for PC supports a wide range of PC hardware specifications from entry-level machines right up to very high end PCs, alongside support for DirectX11 features including tessellation, and support for stereoscopic 3D.
If you are curious as to whether your PC can run Max Payne 3 check out these system requirements:
Operating System: Windows 7 32/64 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 32/64 Service Pack 2, Windows XP 32/64 Service Pack 3

Please keep in mind that unlike consoles, PCs have a wide variety of different hardware and a lot of these system specs are towards the higher end of the spectrum. Rockstar Games currently has no plans for a Max Payne 3 demo so I would use other recent games to help judge whether Max Payne 3 will run on your system. If you aren't sure then it might be best to just play the game on the Xbox 360 or PS3.
Will your PC gaming rig meet the requirements of the PC version of Max Payne 3 when it releases on June 1?
