FIFA 17 System Requirements: Can I play FIFA 17 on my PC?

EA Sports has just release the system requirements for the PC version of FIFA 17. Does your rig match up?

FIFA 17 will hit shops on September 29th (27th in the US) for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and of course PC.

Typically, a new FIFA game is hardly a source of great speculation as to its technical demands. Each new version is typically an iteration on the previous game. But this year’s version of the world’s biggest footy game will be a little different.

FIFA 17 sees EA switching from its Ignite engine to DICE’s Frostbite engine. This means that the new FIFA is a genuinely new game, with completely different guts to last year’s FIFA 16.

All of which makes the question over PC compatibility a genuinely valid and interesting one. So here, without further ado, are the minimum and recommended system specs for FIFA 17:

FIFA 17 Minimum Specifications

OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 – 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 @ 3.1GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4 GHz
Hard Drive Space Required: 50.0 GB
Minimum Supported Video Cards: NVIDIA GTX 460 or AMD Radeon R7 260
DirectX: 11.0

OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 – 64-Bit
CPU: Intel i5-3550K @ 3.40GHz or AMD FX 8150 @ 3.6GHz
Hard Drive Space Required: 50.0 GB
Minimum Supported Video Cards: NVIDIA GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 270
DirectX: 11.0

That’s not a massive difference over FIFA 16’s required specs, but the minimum RAM amount has been doubled to 8GB, and the required hard drive space is much higher (50GB versus 15GB).
