How do I find my computer's specification?

In order to find your computer's specification, you can use a tool built into Windows called DxDiag.

Type 'dxdiag' into the start menu on your PC. An icon should appear at the top of the list, double-click the icon to run the program.

In the System tab you should see:
  • Your operating system.
  • The processor model, speed, and the number of cores
  • Your total available memory
Next is the Display tab, it shows:
  • Graphics card make and model
  • Total graphics memory
  • Date of your current graphics driver
Should you need any assistance comparing your computer's system specifications to the minimum and recommended system requirements, you can select Save all information and attach it to any tickets you make.

Additional information

The items below should be equal or higher than the minimum requirements:
  • Operating system version
  • Number of processor cores
  • Processor speed
  • Memory
To compare your graphics card with the minimum system requirements, first, make sure that your graphics card supports DirectX version 11 or above. If you are not sure if which DirectX version your card supports, please check with the manufacturer of the graphics card.
If your graphics card does support DirectX 11 or later, please check that the installed graphics memory is above the minimum required. Note that some graphics cards are available in multiple versions with different amounts of memory.
