World of Warcraft: Cataclysm system requirements out

Do you need a 3D card upgrade?

Blizzard's just put out the recommended system requirements for upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm.

As our colleagues at PC Gamer point out, the specs for the add-on are very similar to those of Wrath of the Lich King.
