We're all eagerly awaiting Modern Warfare 2, and luckily we'll be able to enter the beta on September 16th, but since it's only for PlayStation players for now, the question is: What are the PC system requirements for Modern Warfare 2 and how powerful does my PC need to be to play the game reasonably smoothly? Don't worry my dear PC friends, thanks to a blog post we already know the Modern Warfare 2 PC system requirements and I can reassure you, as long as you don't play on an Amiga anymore, Modern Warfare 2 should run on your computer.
