Will Starcraft 2 run on my computer?

Recommended Posts

It's always exciting playing a new game, but it can be tough working out whether or not it will be an enjoyable investment if you don't even know if it will run on your computer!

Below are the minimum system requirements for Windows PCs:

Operating System Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10
Processor Intel Core 2 Duo / AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
Video NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT / ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT / Intel HD Graphics 3000
Memory 2 GB RAM
Storage 30 GB available
Resolution 1024 x 768 

If you're planning to play on a Mac, you'll want to check out these minimum requirements instead:

Operating System OS X 10.11
Processor Intel Core 2 Duo
Video NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M / ATI Radeon HD 4670
Memory 4 GB RAM
Storage 30 GB available
Resolution 1024 x 768 

While these will not provide a perfect experience, the above listed requirements will allow the game to run. If you want to try and meet the recommended requirements, there are upgrades required for the operating system, processor and video sections. 

For Windows, the recommended specs are:

Operating System Windows 10 64-bit
Processor Intel Core i5 or AMD FX Series Processor
Video NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 or AMD Radeon HD 7790
Memory 4 GB RAM

For Mac, the recommended specs are:

Operating System macOS 10.13
Processor Intel Core i5
Video NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M / AMD Radeon HD 6970
Memory 8 GB RAM

Note that the recommended specs are not an exact target - if you have something better than what is recommended, the game will definitely run more smoothly. They are just a target for experiencing the game at a level where Blizzard feels is "recommended".
