BioWare is hard at work at yet another epic role-playing game, this time called Dragon Age: Origins, and today publisher Electronic Arts unveiled the minimum and maximum PC specifications necessary to run the title and they are mostly acceptable and welcoming.

Minimum requirements feel like a breeze, I mean really, even my laptop could run it, and the maximum, while a bit more taxing, are most definitely not too extravagant to make you drop more cash on new pieces. But where the fun starts is when we see the install size. A whopping 20GB! For reference, The Sims 3 needed a *measly* 6.5 GB.
