According to Hines, the minimum requires specs will be as follows:
Win XP/7/Vista (32 or 64 bit), dual core 2GB, 2GB RAM, DX9c video card w/ 512MB RAM, Internet Access for Steam activation
The recommended specs will be:
Win XP/7, quad-core Intel/AMD CPU, 4GB RAM, 6GB HD, DX compat snd card, DX9 vid card w/ 1 GB. GTX 260/Radeon 4890 or higher
The minimum specs will allow you to play the game, the recommended specs will let you play on high, but not on Ultra. As Hines says:
You’ll want beefier rig for that.
My “beefier rig” is ready and waiting, Pete. Bring it on!
