Your PC needs to be this shiny, this chrome to ride on the Fury Road of Mad Max

Mad Max (1)

Buckle up, hold onto your ass and prepare to ride with me, Immortan D! Once August hits the finishing stretch, it’s time for the gaming calendar to get pumped up on high-octane crazy blood, as the war boys of Q4 descend on your chosen platforms.

For me, that game is pretty much Mad Max, which is running at full throttle on my excite-o-meter. I’ll be playing it on console of course. But for you PC warlords, this is what’ll you need in order to run the game eternal on the Fury Road of Valhalla:

Mad Max (2)


  • OS: 64-bit Windows Vista, 7, or 8
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-650, 3.2 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 Ghz
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660ti (2 GB Memory or higher) or AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2 GB Memory or higher)
  • DirectX: DX11
  • HDD: 32 GB available space


  • OS: 64 bit: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (3 GB Memory or higher) or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (3 GB Memory or higher)
  • DirectX: DX11
  • HDD: 32 GB available space

If you’re playing on console, you’ll need the following:

Xbox One and PlayStation 4

  • Someone to witness you inserting the disc into the machine. OH WHAT  A LOVELY DAY!

Not too shabby, or as Lord Humongous (AKA Geoff) told me, that’s on the higher end of a moderately beefy gaming PC then. According to my knowledge of hardware, purple crayons still don’t taste like grapes to me and I’m kind of anxious to play the Wii U version of the game eventually.

Mad Max hits various platforms on September 1. I LIVE! I DIE! I LIVE AGAIN!

    I really wanna get this but I have a feeling that since it’s WB published only a minute amount of data will be on disk and the rest will be a Steam download

    Would rather spend my Cash on MGS V but still boils down to data

    And cannot get a clear answer on a DIY adsl installation, I’m told that my 10 year old Telkom line is perfectly fine for ADSL conversion?

    Pretty much my Idea is telkom line + own router + Afrihost

    But step 1 is the problem….

      If you got a telephone line they just have to activate ADSL on it, afrihost will be able to do everything for you!

        Oh wow that simple?


        Shall attempt before the end of this month since I needa preload MGS V badly

      They just have to activate the ADSL and “verify” the line once you’ve signed up and then you plug in your shiny new ASUS Router(good routers) and login with your Afrihost details.

    Once again my pc rides to get gasoline, once again it will be lead by my flagship, once again it will be the gtx 970 that will lead us to triumph!

      Amen to that

      Glad to see my i5 2400 is still passable, but do need a upgrade it soon to at least the 4th or 5th gen

    I read a review last week on one of the gaming sites that did a Skylake vs Sandy bridge benchmark test and they found the Intel Core i5 2500k to be the best gaming CPU out there albeit up to 10% slower than a DDR4 Skylake system at best.
