Ladies and gentleman, start your building. Now that GameStop has leaked the PC specs for Battlefield 3, it's time to piece together a new rig that can handle the Frostbite 2 engine.

The specs appeared on the GameStop product page over the weekend, but has since disappeared. Thanks to the lads at Gamerzines, that information is still available for public consumption. Looking at these hardware requirements, they are very similar to the guesses made by the fan site EnterBF3.com this past May.

Minimum:

  • Hard Drive Space: 15GB for disc version or 10GB for digital version
  • OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
  • Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia/AMD ATI card

Recommended:

  • Hard Drive Space: 15GB for disc version or 10GB for digital version
  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850

We've reached out to EA for confirmation that these are the final specs, but have yet to hear back. Battlefield 3 storms retail on October 25.
