Stray system requirements

Everybody wants to be a cat, and Stray system requirements won't stop you using your gaming PC to fulfil your futuristic feline dreams

Stray system requirements: cat from game sitting with city backdrop

What are the Stray system requirements? The minimum and recommended specs won’t block you from exploring futuristic alleyways as an adorable cat, but might want to double-check your rig before diving in. Thankfully, while the game’s neon-lit cityscapes look remarkable, you won’t need an Nvidia RTX graphics card to get your claws into this cyberpunk adventure.


Here are the Stray system requirements:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 64-bit Windows 10 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 2550K
AMD FX 8350
Intel Core i5 8400
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
AMD Radeon R7 360
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
AMD Radeon R9 290X
Storage 10GB 10GB

According to BlueTwelve Studio’s Stray system requirements, you can run the game on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti – a GPU that’s almost a decade old. Naturally, you’re going to need something a little newer to play with higher settings enabled, but the developer recommends a GTX 780, so you still won’t need to splash out on the best graphics card.

In terms of RAM, you’re going to need a gaming PC with at least 8GB to run around as a cat. While the game’s memory requirements aren’t unreasonable, you might need to revamp your rig if it’s a slightly older build. You’ll also only need 10GB of space to install Stray, which means you won’t necessarily need the best SSD for gaming.

Stray is now available to buy on Steam, and the game is even Steam Deck verified. That means it’ll play nice with Valve’s portable powerhouse, which you’d perhaps expect given its PC controller support and forgiving specs.

Again, it won’t take much to play this cat caper, but if you’re looking to claw as much performance as possible, check out our Best Stray settings for PC and Steam Deck.
