EA has released the minimum and recommended system requirements for Mass Effect Legendary Edition. While the minimum specs are reasonable, the recommended hardware may be hard to come by for those that don't already have it.

BioWare’s Mass Effect trilogy is one of the most impactful RGP’s in the PC space in recent memory. With the remaster (titled Mass Effect Legendary Edition) landing on PCs in May, BioWare has announced the minimum and recommended specifications to give gamers enough time to upgrade their rigs.

The minimum specifications are fairly modest:

The recommended specifications are quite a bit higher (and may be harder to come by for those that don’t already meet them):

Considering the ongoing GPU shortage (and the resultant price hikes for graphics cards), prospective players that don’t already meet these requirements will have to weigh the high cost of a new GPU versus playing the remaster. They will have until the game releases on May 14th to make that decision. 

Preorder Mass Effect Legendary Edition for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
