If you've already resigned yourself to using Origin for PC games like Battlefield 3, then it can't hurt to take a peek at what Mass Effect 3's Origin-required PC outing will need to run smoothly on your rig.

Bioware released both minimum and required specs for Mass Effect 3 today in reference to the Mass Effect 3 demo that'll be available on Februaray 14th. That means that these specs are tailored to the demo, but you can bet it'll be plenty similar to the full release:
