Rough Opening - Basement closet

I just framed a bedroom in my finshed basement (bi-level style home). I am going to use 1/2" drywall on the walls and I was wondering if someone could tell me what is the rough opening I should allow for a 6' wide bifold closet door. The door we will be using is a white (pre-primed) 6 panel door. I have not purchased it yet. I tried to pull some measurments from an existingbedroom closet and the measurment I got was 6'3" wide. Any suggestions or help woul be appreciated.

I just bought some bifold doors. Every package of them I looked at had the required rough opening dimensions printed on it.
