Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce GTS 250/Radeon HD 3800 series and it should be paired with either a Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000+/Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz CPU to match the Rocksmith recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. You should also have 2 GB system memory for min specs.

I actually have this game for xbox 360 and for PC when I'm on the go. The game runs great on either system and I've had zero problems. It was truly a real plug & play experience. On top of the game being able to work with any guitar that has a jack, that it would normally use to plug into an amp, is a huge bonus. The advanced player might become bored, but there are fundamentals taught by this game that can benefit players of all skill levels. This game is my new high!
