For the last time! No, we're not posting GTA4.tv's specs on the front page. They aren't official. They are taken from CoD4. Besides, ours seem more realistic.


This is GTA 4, Not Crysis LOL !

Yes, but if you've played the PS3 or 360 versions of GTA IV, you'll have noticed that Liberty City is a living, breathing city. There's a new game engine, new physics engine, ped AI is much different now. And anyway, R* would never copy another games requirements.

You seem to have very similar specs to mine. I believe your card is better than what I have - I am pretty sure the HP laptops use the DDR3 version of the 8600.

I would really love to see Crysis running on a rig with this spec on high settings without a drop in fps.

When you're including your specs, it's also very relevant what screen resolution you're running.


A game might run on high at 800x600, but have to take a massive drop in visuals to run at 1280x1024. When anyone says 'at high settings' it's useless unless they say what resolution they are at. If you run on the wrong resolution for your screen, chances are the game will look shit anyway.

@ evo... you probably could run that...if the 8xxx was an 8800 GTX or something... and if you were at 1280x1024. I got that out of my system, but when i went up to 1680x1050, i had to drop it down to just high.

I don't think you can run GTA IV on an internal/built-in graphics chipset such as the Intel GMA, especially if you are using Windows Vista, which uses more resources than XP. I think an Nvidia 8600 or 7300 will do, well, at least if you set the graphics to low or medium.

Nvidia 7300


lol

General rule of thumb with nVidia cards. In 4-number series cards, if the second number is below 6, the card sucks and should never be used for gaming ever.

Same thing with ATi, although it's generally the second number being below 8 that denotes failure.

If your graphics card is integrated/Intel, I doubt you'll be able to play at all. I've said it before: if you can't play San Andreas maxed out (Very High visual FX), at 1280x1024 and get a constant framerate (usually 25 if V-Sync is off and frame limiter is on) then good luck playing GTA IV.

That's why I should have bought an 8600 when me and my dad shopped for a PC...

I use an ATI Radeon X1300 Pro, works fantasticly for games such as HL2: Ep2. I get framerate issues when all settings are maxed out(but everything looks quite pretty.), herein lies the problem with not enough RAM and my slightly-below-average AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor.

Gigabyte RADEON HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E 2210
Asus RADEON EAH4850 /HTDI/512 2485

I'm planning to get ATi 4850 instead of Geforce 9600, but which of them?
The last number is price.(1$=10EEK)

Asus tend to be the best when it comes to customer service, warranty, and all that. So that's what i say.
Gigabyte make good cards too... I've had bad experiences with sapphire cards...

ATM I have Sapphire Radeon 9600 ATLANTIS which served me pretty well too.
But ASUS is a bit expensive.
What does HTDI mean?

It CAN output a HDMI signal, but doesn't have one as standard, a DVI - HDMI adapter would be needed for that, as well as a HDMI equipped mobo.

i think.

Huh? :blink:

I don't know much about what words on graphics cards mean.
So could you please say what the heck are DVI and HDMI and stuff :P?

DVI is an alternative to VGA.

You know the plug that goes into your PC from your monitor? That's a VGA socket. DVI are an alternative, but different, they are better quality, and only newer monitors support them. HDMI is only supported by the more expensive monitors and TV's and gives awesome sound an visual quality.
