for sure it'll run. not sure about res/settings. graphic quality will depend on your resolution mostly.


Will it run fine ? I mean without lag ? :huh:


Depends on what settings you use. You could have a brand new i7 and great videocard and it'll still lag if you tried to run it at 2560x1600 on everything maximum (probably).

What is the max resolution your monitor supports ? If you don't know, what size / type is your monitor (eg LCD 19" widescreen)

I don't want to run it on resolutions really high. I mean not something like 2560x1600.

Something like 1024x768(my desktop screen resolution) or 1280x720 pixels will be more than good for me.
Also, I don't have a LCD. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 793MB 17 inch CRT Monitor. I don't plan on changing it either, since it runs fine even now. :)

And by the max resolution my monitor supports. Do you mean the the max resolution I can use in Display Properties in Windows ? Then its 1280x1024 pixels.

If you're really that desparate to find out, you could've just ran it.

You should be able to, but don't hold out high hopes for the video settings. Depends alot at what res you're planning to use, really.


I'm not "desparate", and i just can't install ir 'till I finish downloading the game. I didn't meant to disturb you, i should erase that "aaaanyone" comment.


Don't worry. You should most probably be able to run it. :)



I'm done, my brand-new Radeon HD5770 vaporX just arrived, so now it should be running fine. I changed a little bit my configuration: Still the same processor, AMD Phenom II 965 X4 @3600, 4GB 1333 DDR3 ram and regular 7200rpm sata drives.
I tried to open the game just after the driver instalation (after reboot) and the game just hangs in a black screen. I'm not even able to do alt+tab, nothing at all!
Anyone knows what this is about? Thanx!

Does it give you any error or something? Or does it just crash your pc ? It should at least run with that specs.
If you downloaded the game illegally over the internet, the game might be corrupt.

Besides, what Operating System(XP/Vista/7) are you using ? :yup:

Sorry, but we don't provide support for pirated versions of GTA games. And I don't think that your current hardware config can run IV at decent playable speeds.

hmm thats weird...

try uninstall gta4, restart, reinstall, restart again, and try run it. if it still has issues, could be a driver problem but you said u just got the new ones so probably not that.

so you have the same cpu, motherboard, ram, hard drive etc as you had when you installed the OS. if you change at least the CPU or motherboard, you should reinstall the OS (windows or w/ev) because it doesnt really like it. i think some issues with drivers may arise etc.

well we wont be able to help you crack the game since its illegal and blablabla so yep.

as for running the game, intel graphics are just shit for gaming. you could run san andreas but i highly doubt you'd be able to run gta4.

Don't expect anything decent with an Intel GMA-powered PC when it comes to hardcore gaming. Casual and low-end games like SA, but like what WRX said, don't bother running it on an integrated graphics chip. You might think of shelling some more cash on a desktop with a good graphics card, lots of memory and a beefy CPU as IV is really really resource-hungry for a game.

Nope. You might be able to run it, but don't expect good frame rates even at low settings. Any four-digit Nvidia card that has 4 or below on the second digit is expected to be piss-poor when it comes to high-end games.

Hey guys! I was just wondering if my graphics card is compatible with GTA IV? I've got an ATI Radeon 3450, well the packet says 3450 but CPUZ says its 3400. I don't know which one to believe :lol:

I've all the requirements the game needs, just the graphics card I'm a bit concerned with

i reckon a 5770 would go well. they're about $150-200. you can get a powercolor one for $167 from MSY. if you wanna spend more than that, the 5850 is around $350.

well if the box says its 3450 then it is. CPU-Z probably just sees it as a 3400 series ATi.

For that, I don't think it will ever run at all. Maybe a slideshow, but I'm pretty sure it will be a lot worse than you can imagine.
