Rust Computer Requirements

The system requirements are quite high, and a gaming PC with a new graphics processing unit is required for successfully running Rust. GeForce GTX 980 or better GPU is needed.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a computer. 10gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 20gb of hard drive space is required, which has to be noted if you install many games.
