Urgh... That's nuts... Goes to show that either their benchmarking isn't up to scratch or there's some really REALLY screwed up programming in there somewhere!

I don't think there's a simple answer to the "will it or won't it work" question. Or even how well will it work... I'm just going to be happy to get it playing at a decent framerate and better gfx level than the xBox/PS3!!

Interesting to note that IF these benchmarks are accurate, then regardless of GFX levels used, the CPU is only being used about 50%!!!!!! It's relying too much on the GPU... I think this game is crying out for SLI! I read somewhere on here that there will be a patch coming for an SLI setup... I don't think anyone is going to see the game in it's full glory until that happens!

Edit your shortcut to look something like this:

"C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\LaunchGTAIV.exe" -norestrictions

So right click > Properties > add "-norestriction" at the end. It tells you in the readme.
