I'd double the amount of RAM there if you can afford it. Just to be sure. 2GB isn't that much these days, it's enough, but you know, this is GTAIV.

Just buy an adapter for your old PS2 controller. PS2 controllers are the best for playing GTA games on the PC. Been using it to play them since GTA3 :)

PC parts manufacturers are gonna love this news though. Think of all the people who must be upgrading their computers now. Everyone wanting Vista and a new graphics card so they can see the benefits of DX10. Everyone getting more RAM.
Glad I upgraded last year, will almost certainly pay off. 2.4GHz Core2Duo, 4GB RAM, 8800GTS 320MB, I can't wait for this. Will be pre-ordering as soon as it's available online somewhere :awesome:


Was just talking to Evo about the same thing on MSN. It's so much easier.

Lol, might as well, that's what I did before buying an extra 2x1GB sticks. Then I sold the old RAM :P

Man, this is gunna be so awesome! I actually can't wait. Only problem is with this year, I'm studying loads for my GCSE's and even if I get it, I won't have the time to play it due to studies.

Is it going to be DX10 only?
Or it will support DX9 too?
If DX10 only then I better get new graphics card soon.

Not bad, not bad at all.

And Vista. The only reason I'm getting Vista on mine is to seduce DX10.

Chris, I might just get an extra 2GB RAM from eBay if the game doesn't run smoothly with 2GB.

Ermm...

Well yeah we don't know what specs it will require yet, and if it'll take advantage of DX10 - but one would assume it will do.

Looks like I'll be needing to get some more RAM and a better graphics card for this but it'll be worth it. :D

So I bought that 360 for nothing?


>.>
<.<


I'd much rather have it on PC. Especially for moar multiplayer!

Hey, I'm on Xbox Live. That's gotta count for something. No?

Oh man. Can you imagine the amount of twats we're gonna get on here posting crap like "why duz GTA4 run so slow on my PC plz halp". Fucking kids on their parents computers...
Probably gonna need to employ some new moderators here!

I'm good at telling people they're idiots. :lol:

*ejaculates*


So... so happy right now .... :P

Wow, that kinda reminds me of when TM (I think) posted some pics of some hot piece of ass. That mess was a bitch to clean up! Anyway, I wonder what extras the multiplayer will have. It's not gonna make me re-buy the game and upgrade my POS PC, but I'm still curious.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

You may well be but there's more to being a moderator than just the ability to tell people off. ;)

Mod time!

The engine has changed, so what will the new Zmodeler or Moomapper be like?
