With hair this wind resistant, why would you ever mess with Goku?!

Bandai Namco are about to unleash Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot on us and you might be wondering whether your rig can run the game of your anime dreams. You're in for a treat as the PC minimum and recommended specs are quite low.

CyberConnect2 seem to have done a great job on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot optimisation for PC as the game will run on potatoes if you ask it nicely. While this might not work in the literal sense, the required components are on the lower end for both minimum and recommended specs.

The bare minimum that is required in the way of CPUs is either i5-2400 or AMD Phenom II X6. While the i5-2400 is one of the legendary chipsets, it is also a really old one, with a release date from January 2011. Team Red's CPU is even older, dated in April 2010.

Meanwhile, the minimum GPU requirements are GTX 750 Ti and HD 7950 which we're mid-tier even back in their heyday. Again, these are old components, dating from 2014 and 2012, respectively. As a reminder, Radeon HD 7950 precedes the current generation of consoles. 

As for the recommended specs, Kakarot will not ask much either. Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200 will suffice, both of which are somewhat outdated CPUs by today's standards and even if they weren't - they are not expensive.

Recommended GPUs are GeForce GTX 960 and Radeon R9 280X. Once again, these are mid-tier GPUs. Even though they aren't as old as the ones in the minimum section, they have aged by now.
