Can my PC run GTA IV?

1,190 posts in this topic

I changed the recommended CPU to a E8190. IIRC the 6400+ is only a dual-core. GTA IV definitely won't require a quad-core, that's just outrageous. You would presumably only need to use one or two of your cores if you're playing GTA IV...

Quad core = fad. End.

GTAIV won't require dual core, but it will be optimized to take advantage of it. It's not all about what make of processor you have either really. No point in ahving one that you had to sell your firstborn to buy if it's not backed up with other good components. I think that a rig running a 2.4 ghz dual core could run it on full with the right RAM / GFX setup.

2.4 Pentium HT, 512mb of memory, 20gb HD and 4mb Intel intergrated graphics ... wrong computer ...

My laptop has ... 8600m GT 512mb, Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz and 3gb memory.

I plan on building a desktop soon enough anyway.

Bullshit it is, the more cores the better, but it costs more and most games (even some applications) still don't take advantage of them.

IMO they should program each core to do a different task. For example if you had a quad-core processor and a game, one core would do the physics, one for the lighting/shadowing, one for rendering, and one for processing information. The graphics and sound cards would take care of the other bits.

That's a damn nice computer for a laptop, I just don't like to game on them, but you should be able to run it on there anyway.

This laptop is okay with cooling, I tend to run around 65C on the GPU with a slight OC and COD4 running at almost max settings. It works well.

But if it don't run GTA4 ... it's being sold.

Yeah, you should be able to run it on at least medium or low with that card. I do recommend you upgrade though, get a HD 4850 or something and maybe another gig of ram. 1GB isn't that much for GTA IV. CPU's not that bad though.

Yes most likely. That's a pretty decent machine you have there.

Do ya think it would run on my laptop

Acer aspire 5315

Vista basic

intel celron 540

252mbmobile intel graphic media x3100

1gb ddr2

80gig hd

Hell, you'd be lucky if you played it on the lowest settings. Vista Basic isn't exactly awesome. Intel GMA is fail as well.

8GB to 10 GB Free hard disk space

VGA Card:- 256 MB VRAM, Nvidia Geforce 7800 or Better, Shader Model 3.0 Supportable recommended

These are the DAMN SURE requirements cuz my cousin works in Nvidia company and he mailed me these requirements and after few days, similar requirements are also posted in gta4.tv website :rolleyes:

Are you some sort of GTA4.tv promoter or something? You do realise they just posted Call of Duty 4 specs, verbatim, don't you. Their guess is as good as ours. I think ours is more realistic though.

Also I don't believe you have a cousin. Why would anyone at nVidia know what the requirements are?

Oh and guy with crappy laptop, BULL, or someone, didn't notice you had a Intel GMA gfx card - yeah you're gonna be lucky as hell to get it to run on that mate. You not got a PC you can play it on? Upgrading laptops is ftl.

Okay, I'll do that. And then I'll prove you wrong. They'll definitely be similar but I think Chris82 or my guess is the closest. Anyway, how are you so sure? Your cousin is probably chatting BS, I'm nto even sure if NVIDIA even has a building in Bahrain or wherever your cousin (Susan or w/e his name is) works.

I'm psychic. Just assumed that because your flag says that you live in Bahrain. Anyway, this is getting a little off-topic now. Back on the road we go!

EDIT: Heath Ledger was an awesome actor, and the Joker is an awesome villain. It's called The Dark Knight btw...
