Can I Run Roblox On My Computer?

Roblox is intentionally designed to be fairly undemanding on your system, so as to open the space up to as many people as possible. That being said, the minimum system requirements for the game (recommended system requirements are not given) have not actually been updated by the publisher since the platform was launched back in 2006, despite graphical improvements that have occurred to the game in the interim.

As a result, further down this page, you will see both the official minimum system requirements and our version of the recommended system requirements, which we believe are much more accurate for playing the game now.

If you want to see if your current PC can run the game but aren’t sure how, look to our guide on how to find your PC specs to see if you will need an upgrade. If so, at the bottom of this page we have listed some PC builds that would be suitable to play the game on.

Roblox is free to download from the Roblox website once you’ve set up an account, though there are various upgrade packs you can buy on Eneba at discounted prices for the PC and Xbox versions should you wish.


Roblox Game Details

  • System Requirements : Low
  • Genre : MMORPG / Game Creation System / Online Social Platform

Roblox is a relatively unique, multi genre game platform, in which users can create their own games and play the game created by other users. Hugely popular among young teens, the platform has also grown to incorporate elements of an online social platform and even hosts live virtual music concerts.

Roblox System Requirements

As stated, we have listed below the outdated minimum system requirements, from back in 2006, and also what we believe to be more realistic recommended system requirements for playing the game now.

Roblox Minimum System Requirements (official)

  • CPU : a processor from 2005 or later @1.6 Ghz or better (some issues with older AMD CPUs)
  • RAM : 1GB RAM
  • GPU / Video Card : must support DirectX 10 minimum and Shader Model 2.0
  • Storage : 20MB HDD
  • Operating System : Windows 7, 8, or 10

Roblox Recommended System Requirements (WePC)

  • CPU : Intel Core i3 6300 Dual Core 3.8 GHz
  • RAM : 8GB RAM
  • GPU / Video Card : GeForce GTX 660 2GB
  • Storage : 2GB HDD
  • Operating System : Windows 7, 8, or 10

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Roblox?

To run Roblox on the lowest settings at a 1080p, one of our $500 budget self build PCs should do the job nicely. If you want to crank things up a bit, then an $800 self-build should suffice.

Although putting together your own PC is generally more cost-effective, it isn’t for everyone, so if you want to run Roblox on the lowest settings at 1080p then one of our under $500 pre-built PCs will steer you true. Again though, if you want to up the settings a bit, then a $800 build would be best.

From halcyon days playing Sonic 2 on the Megadrive, to trying to work out how to make the 'TOASTY!' man appear on Mortal Kombat 3, many of Aaron’s fondest childhood memories are associated with gaming. He regrets nothing. First getting into PC gaming through exposure to Drug Lord 2.0 and then the original Half Life, he has been a fiend ever since. If you need to know anything about gaming laptops, he's your guy.
