Mafia II System Requirements


Mafia was an extrem­ly under­rat­ed game.  It received well by those who played it but it had very lit­tle expo­sure and had very lit­tle pub­lic recep­tion.   Below are the sys­tem require­ments for the PC ver­sion.  If your pc isn’t up to the par then you can always go the con­sole route.  I was one of the few who actu­al­ly bought the orig­i­nal game and I could­n’t set it down till it fin­ished it.  Sim­ply amaz­ing game.

    I can’t begin to tell you how excit­ed I am for this game. I loved the orig­i­nal game and could­n’t set it down. The cars were amaz­ing and so were the graph­ics for the time.
    I have to say though the graph­ics require­ments for this game are up there. A sec­ond card ded­i­cat­ed for physx? Seems a lit­tle high… we either have a new “cry­sis” or we have ter­ri­ble opti­miza­tion.

    Brad, most true pc gamers have a sec­ond card ded­i­cat­ed to Phyx only. The most com­mon is the 9800 or the 250GTS. I have a GTS for my phyx card and it allows me to boost my AA and AF to max and keep the frame rate at 200+ on my GPU. you should try to catch up with the scene hoe!

    You are jok­ing right? If you .025 of the pop­u­la­tion then yes 😛 I won’t lie i’ve been tempt­ed to buy a 9800 just to have a physx card but at the same time is it real­ly worth it for the 10 games that use it? Besides most REAL gamers use ATI cards 😛 Which I hap­pened to run at the moment. There is a spe­cial dri­ver that lets you bridge the two.
