With so many people wondering whether they will be able to run JKII, everyone list your specs in this thread. List (A) What you have now and (B) what you'll probably have by JKII (next year.)


I personally have:


CPU: P3 1000 MHz


GFX: geForce2 GTS 32 MB DDR


At the end of summer, I'm purchasing:


CPU: P4 ~1700 MHz


GFX: geForce3 64 MB

Oh yes, add the connection speed you'll be on as well ;). I remember almost everyone was 56K when JK first came out; back then I thought my ISDN was nice heh.


4 months of the year: I'm cable.

8 months of the year: T3+

I thought this thread was going to be about what you had when Jedi Knight came out and what you have now.


Back in the day, I had a PII 350 with a Pure 3D (Voodoo 1) board! That was the bomb for JK playing.


Now I have a Thunderbird 1 GHz with a GeForce SDR card.

Currently I have,


P3 800

256mb of RAM

42gb HD

Geforce GTS II 64mb

Earthlink DSL


Seeing as how Quake III runs beautifully on my system and JKII will be using the Quake III engine, I won't have to make much of an upgrade.


P3 1.13ghz

256mb of RAM

Dedicated SCSI HD for Games

Geforce 3 Ultra

Right now, I have, now don't laugh;

Pentium 200,

32MB ram,

Phoenix Voodoo 2 Banshee 16mb video

4.2GB hard drive,

running Win 95 Plus!

with my cable connection, that really helps.

I hope to have a 1.2 Ghz, at least 256MB ram, with about (no less than) 20GB hard drive, a GeForce Ultra videocard, and my cable connection upgraded to ISDN high speed when it becomes available...(talk about a luxury)LOL :rolleyes:

  • K6-2 450
  • 128mb SDRAM (PC 100)
  • GeForce 2 MX
  • 56k


When JK II comes out:

  • 1Ghz-ish Duron/Athlon (not quite sure yet)
  • 192-256mb RAM
  • GeForce 2 MX
  • Probably still 56k (unless BT gets its act togather with ADSL) :mad:

That'll probably stretch my meager budget far enough.

Voodoo 3 when JK first came out? You mean when you first played it I'm sure.


For the first 3 months I owned Jedi Knight I didn't even have a computer--I played it on the computer of the guy in the next dorm room over. Then I upgraded to the most powerful computer that anyone had at the time.


A Cyrix 200mhz with a whopping 64mb of RAM and a 6mb Voodoo Rush card.


I'm not even going to try to guess what I'm going to have when JK2 comes out since I upgrade some part of my computer every 3 months or so.
