Following on from their hands-on preview earlier, IGN have released the official minimum and recommended PC specifications for GTA IV. They did it at the same time as officially (sort of) announcing that the game will be delayed, as was rumoured recently due to many online retailers pushing back the date to 2nd December.
There's no word directly from Rockstar yet, but we suspect IGN has better sources than Amazon. We'll keep you updated if we hear anything from R* on the matter.

Minimum System Requirements
  • OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz
  • Memory: 1.5GB, 16GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements
  • OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz
  • Memory: 2 GB (Windows XP) 2.5 GB (Windows Vista)
  • 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
Still not sure if your PC is up to the job? Check our helpful forum thread. For convenience, the specs will be permanently on our GTA IV system requirements page, to save you having to find this news post.

w00t.

I can run it. Haha. I have a Core 2 Quad Processor, with the exact same speed. Hmm, 18GB is quite massive. In fact, it's biggest I've seen, I think. Graphics card can handle it too, which is ftw.

Hell, this is gonna be an awesome experience. :D

Ah fuck. Gotta clear out my C drive, move some of my shit into my other hard drives. I still have like 1TB free space but it's only semi-organised. C drive is nearly full!

I'll be fine running it but I'm no longer so sure about running at 1680x1050 on max settings :/
It's been a long time since I had a look at graphics cards, anyone know how well my nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 320MB squares up to the recommended nVidia card there, as I've no idea? BTW it also utilises shared VRAM or some shit, dxdiag says total video RAM is 1.9GB, which leaves me with 2.1GB actual RAM free for the game. Sort of. :)

What? Rockstar, you can't be fucking serious. A quad core? Bull. I bet you that you'd be able to run it nicely on an E4600.

Ermm...

An 8800 will no doubt play the game with everything you have, Chris.

Also, sucks for single-core users!

Gotta upgrade mah RAM!

Same, too. Maybe if I swap processors from the other PC that I built; it has a 2.2Ghz C2D, buy another stick and an 8600GT (or a 9600GSO), then I can run it even on low or medium.

Well, at least now I know what to get if I buy a new PC. Anyone think a 3 year old Compaq with a HD 3450, Sempron 3000+ will run it on low?

Ermm...

Lol I doubt it, you don't even pass the minimum? You do realise that the minimums are basically another way of saying "this is what you require to run the game smoothly on low settings" - so you'll probably run it, but on the lowest settings, and it won't be that smooth.

Lol... They said San Andreas wouldn't run on anything lower than 512MB too. And that it needs a videocard installed. But my friend manages to play it with 256MB RAM, a crappy processor and an on-board 'Sis' videocard or w/e it's called xD

There is absolutely no way that a game of this quality of graphics will run on integrated graphics.

kl my new system should run on medium-low

intel Xeon Quad Core X5355 2.66 GHz
4GB DDR2 RAM
nvidia geforce 9600GT 512MB
500GB HDD
windows XP x64


If by medium-low you mean very high, then yes.

Should be fine with that. You'll run it smoothly on pretty high settings
