If you're hoping to play Mass Effect: Andromeda on PC, we now know what kind of hardware you'll need to do so.

Origin has published the minimum and recommended specs for Andromeda ahead of its release next month. The low end isn't especially demanding, only calling for a 2 GB GTX 660 or Radeon 7850 to be paired with an i5-3570 or FX-6350.

If you want a more ideal experience, though, the recommended specs suggest you have at least a GTX 1060 or RX 480 with an i7-4790 or FX-8350.

Unfortunately, EA doesn't specify what level of quality, framerate, or resolution this hardware is needed to reach. Ubisoft's recent recommended specs have only been for 1080p, while many PC players will expect to play at higher resolutions.

Andromeda launches on all platforms on March 21. A multiplayer beta is expected to launch at some point before then, which may give you the chance to see how the game runs on your system.

In the meantime, check out our latest preview of Andromeda and chat with BioWare about the size of the game.
