For the best experience, your PC needs to have a 1200x800 or higher screen, and the .NET Framework 4 installed for a small number of plug-in features. If you just recently bought the PC there is a good chance that you already have it. If you're not sure, Click here to get it. .NET framework isn't an official requirement, but some plugins use it, as well as a utility that is part of the installer that sets administration privileges.

Your computer's processor (Intel, AMD) should be recent enough that it can run SSE2 extensions.  Shader level 6 is required for GPU functions.
