According to the Dead Space system requirements on Steam, you’re going to need one of the best gaming CPU options to board the USG Ishimura. Motive advises using something at least on par with the Intel Core i5 8600 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, with the recommended specs jumping up much higher to the Core i5 11600K and Ryzen 5 5600X.

Dead Space minimum GPU requirements aren’t quite as ravenous, with Motive suggesting you won’t need the best graphics card to go on this spooky sci-fi romp. Both the ageing Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 will provide enough horsepower, but we don’t know what kind of performance they’ll offer.
However, those looking to boost fps or enjoy the game’s ray tracing features will be better served by the GeForce RTX 2070 or Radeon RX 6700 XT. Thankfully, Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR are supported, with both upscaling technologies giving you some extra headroom.
