Direct2Drive publishes minimum Black Ops specs


Direct2Drive's published a set of minimum specs for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Got an Intel Core2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better? You're laughing.

These aren't the official specs, obviously, but we're assuming D2D didn't just invent them. We'll tap up Activision and see what happens.

Here's the lot:
