The PC system requirements for Dishonored are actually pretty reasonable.

Dishonored looks hot. Luckily for those of the mouse-and-keyboard set, that hotness will apparently be attainable without having to fork over $700 for the latest and greatest GPU from Nvidia or ATI. Bethesda revealed the minimum PC system requirements today and while the game is optimized for 64-bit systems and multi-core CPUs, the baseline requirements aren't what I'd call outrageous. Behold!

  • OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7
  • Processor: 3.0 GHz dual core or better
  • Memory: 4 GB system RAM
  • Hard Disk Space: 9 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible with 512 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
  • Sound: Windows compatible sound card

And then of course there's the recommended spec, which is actually quite similar but for the quad-core CPU and slightly upgraded video card:

  • OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7
  • Processor: 2.4 GHz quad core or better
  • Memory: 4 GB system RAM
  • Hard Disk Space: 9 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible with 768 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
  • Sound: Windows compatible sound card

In case you weren't aware, Bethesda has previously revealed that the PC version of Dishonored will offer a number of exclusive features including a shortcut bar mapped to the top-row number keys which will give direct access to powers and items, a field-of-view slider and various options and "graphical toggles" that will let gamers take full advantage of their rigs. Yeah, it's good to be elite.

Dishonored comes out on October 9 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
