Baldur’s Gate 3 system requirements might change as the game goes through it’s lengthy Steam Early Access period, but it doesn’t demand too much of your gaming PC so far. The likelihood is that you’ll already have a rig ready to run the minimum, and the recommended specs prioritise the most popular GPU on Steam right now.
At the least, Larian reckons you’ll want to run an Intel i5-4690 or an AMD FX 4350 processor with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or an AMD Radeon R9 280X graphics card to run Baldur’s Gate 3 comfortably. You should also make sure you have a minimum memory of 8 GB RAM.
