i dont know if this is the right place for the topic but lets get started...

if some1 makes a game with game maker does the game inherits the system requirements of game maker?or this isnt the case?
because if u can run the game maker with this settings below fine does that means that a game generated from game maker that it inherits them.
im not sure that's why im asking.

System requirements

Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7
DirectX 8-compatible graphics card with at least 32MB of video memory
Pentium or equivalent processor
DirectX 8-compatible sound card
156MB of memory or greater
800x600 or greater screen resolution with 16-bit or 32-bit colors

Not sure if this will answer your question but...

If you can 'test run' a game you're working on and it runs fine, it should run exactly the same on a similar system when you pack it into an .exe. I could be wrong, but as far as I know, when you test run a game, it literally compiles the .exe and runs it.

The system requirements of actually running the Game Maker editor have little to do with the 'system requirements' of a game you create from it, if that's what you're asking.

Hope this helps.
