For all 'Will my PC run GTA IV' - questions, please refer to >THIS< topic.

The official Games for Windows website has been updated with the recommended system requirements for the PC version of GTA IV, which are as follows:
  • OS: Windows XP SP2
  • Processor: Dual core processor (Intel Pentium D or better)
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Hard Drive: 18GB free hard disk space
  • Video Card: 512MB Direct3D 10 compatible video card or Direct3D 9 card compatible with Shader
  • Drive: DVD-ROM dual-layer drive


If your current rig doesn't quite match up to these specs, at least now you've got a good reason to upgrade!

UPDATE: It looks as though Microsoft has pulled the requirements from the Games For Windows site now, meaning they were most likely placeholder requirements. Take these specifications with a pinch of salt until the page is updated again.

Id have upgrade everything. Ill just get a new one. Though its going to be at least 6 months before that happens.
1UP
Wow fuck, My good comp only meets that, id much rather be over it. Time to buy some new things.
HotRaper
question ( cause i'm not exacly a pc nerd !!):

If I wanna chage the CPU, do i have to change the motherboard ?
And is a '' Direct3D 10 compatible video card '' similar to an NVidea GeForce FX8400 ?
FuddMan
Hmm, looks like the requirements have been pulled from the site now. I guess it was just a placeholder.

Those are the recommended reqs.....so the minimum will probably be half of these.....

Great I can run it. I only need to buy new video card.

nope u just must re-setting the BIOS for the new CPU laugh.gif . about the graphic card, download the GPU-Z from google then see the DirectX version is it 10 or no and then check the Shader too

WOW unsure.gif ... i almost crapped when i seen those specs, but then i seen RECCOMMENDED. lol

anyone think i can pull off LOWEST on:

Windows XP Professional SP2
Intel Pentium 4 HT 2.80GHz 800FSB 512k
1024MB DDR PC3200 Crucial Dual Channel
BFG Geforce 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 AGP8x
SoundMax Digital Audio
80GB 7200RPM HDD

i sure hope so, i can run GRID in 1024x768 with everything most of the way up at perfect frames..

In my opinion, i think ur system would be fine to run on low setting, the only downside is the cpu is little slow. biggrin.gif

the game will have min requirements, something like:

OS: Windows XP SP2
CPU: 2.8 GHz or faster for XP, 3.2 GHz or faster for Vista
RAM: 1 GB RAM for XP, 1.5 GB RAM for Vista
Graphic card: 256 MB video memory, NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or greater
Sound: DirectX 9.0c compliant card


Zen
This is yet another sign that I need a new computer. sad.gif
x_orange90_x
thnx for the info PCGamer! i did have my CPU oc'd to 3.00GHz with i think 810MHz FSB and my ram oc'd to 210MHz.. i may do that again, i wasnt having any cooling probs, just random game crashes (but that was my PSU being overloaded from 3 hdd, DVD-RW, and the 6800GT lol!).

18 GB of HDD Space needed WTF? isnt that a bit much?

The game's going to run at a maximum of 2560x1600 which means you need extremely hi-res textures. If you're going to make an entire city out of them, it's going to take up a fair bit of space.

Hard drives are pretty cheap nowadays anyway.

Indeed they are still a bit amount though and a large leap from san andreas's 4gb with radio installed onto your computer

Is the 18gb with radios installed onto computer?

Celeron cpu is ok, but is not recommend for gaming purpose, i suggest you upgrade but make sure your new cpu is at least dual core and running above 2.8ghz! BUT overall performance of the game will depend on whole of the system together, so you might be able to gta 4 at the lowest setting, if you're lucky.


NVIDIA 9500M GS is a good card, will def run gta 4, but don't expect th game to run at highest setting. laptops graphic card are always weak at gaming it comparison to the desktop ones! laptop GPU cards are designed to run cooler and on less power than their desktop counterparts. lamo.gif

dudes can i run it on my laptop on atleast medium setting ??? unsure.gif i hav 3gb ram,core2duo 2.2 processor,NVIDIA GEFORCE 8600 M GT 256mb??
PCGamer
To all the people asking if their system can run GTA 4, clam down wait for Rockstar to announce it, this will be very soon!

BUT In my opinion, if your system has specs(below) something like: should able to run the game on low setting

OS: Windows XP SP2/Vista
CPU: 2.8 GHz or faster for XP, 3.2 GHz or faster for Vista
RAM: 1 GB RAM for XP, 1.5 GB RAM for Vista
Graphic card: 256 MB video memory, NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or greater

You guys who are saying that you need at least a 2.8GHZ CPU are morons. Any dual core CPU will do. # of cores is more important than clock speed nowadays.

I have an Nvidia 8400GS 256MB that Turbo Caches to 512MB. That should be sufficient to run at max settings right?

so you are moron too, right? where's your mind? a very poor 8400GS just can run the low setting, maybe with much of laggy. you are a very poor people laugh.gif

A 8400gs is a low budget card( not made for gaming purpose) can never compete with 8600xx or the 8800xx in the nvidia 8 series range so this guy is right gta 4 will run a low setting.

dual core cpu are only good for running multiple tasks, for game to take full advantage of dual/quad core cpus, both the operating system and the software should be must have simultaneous multi-threading technology (SMT) written into its code, not having SMT the software will only recognize one core. So a very fast single core can run current games on the market that guaranteed!

Probably not. 8600 is a mid-range, almost budget card. And since you have XP you won't be able to use DirectX 10, which is pretty much a necessity for running new games on full graphics nowdays.

You system would be just fine for gta 4. The AMD cpu will do the jobs for now, should upgrade near future. you got more the enough ram both for xp or even vista. No need to upgrade as 4gb of ram is wasted, well firstly you will a 64bit OS(vista/xp pro) to use effectively and secondly application would NOT see the the extra 1gb correctly and will not take the full advantage!

So you may not be able to run the game at the highest setting with dx10 textures and etc as u will require vista.

@ this configuration u think not be able to run @ highest settings? with better processor maybe AMD Athlon64 6000+ or better and that 3870 @ 800/2250MHz + 3GB of RAM i think GTA IV run @ max

I think I have good configuration, but I need to buy better processor maybe...

MB: ASUS M2N-E
Processor: AMD Athlon64 DualCore 4000+ @ (default 2.1GHz) but I can OC @ 2.5GHz and more
Graphic: MSI RX3870 T2D512E-OC 512MB DDR4 GPU @ 800Mhz memory @ 2250MHz
RAM: Kingston 3GB 800MHz
Monitor: SAMSUNG 931BW 1440x900 2ms 2000:1
OS: XP SP3

What U think?

u right change it to intel quad smile.gif i prefer vista than xp, but its up to u. if going to change to vista maybe its better upgrade the ram


Vista make me nervous because on vista arent working all oldest programs and etc. and if a want to change to intel I need intel motherboard too... I think it would be ok to buy AMD Athlon64 6000+ or better Dual Core of course biggrin.gif




You system would be just fine for gta 4. The AMD cpu will do the jobs for now, should upgrade near future. you got more the enough ram both for xp or even vista. No need to upgrade as 4gb of ram is wasted, well firstly you will a 64bit OS(vista/xp pro) to use effectively and secondly application would NOT see the the extra 1gb correctly and will not take the full advantage!

So you may not be able to run the game at the highest setting with dx10 textures and etc as u will require vista.


@ this configuration u think not be able to run @ highest settings? with better processor maybe AMD Athlon64 6000+ or better and that 3870 @ 800/2250MHz + 3GB of RAM i think GTA IV run @ max



I said is wont run with full dx10 textures as u don't have vista!


yeah u right, nothing prevent me to try game on vista too biggrin.gif I have some DX10 for XP but I think that is fake shit... in software info i see DX 10 but who knows!
GTA 4EVER
sorry i'm forgot that 32bit just can read about 3.5GB Ram. but ya PCGamer right, the modern games now will run better with DX10. and maybe require it! so the XP users will crying sadly^_^

what do u use XP or Vista if XP, RAM OK, HDD OK but for the Intel P4 and the video card not. About the processor, at least u have 2 cores. and the graphics should change. if no, GTA4 wont be run. and if u use vista and have lots of stuff there, just add the RAM maybe to 3 or 3.5 GB
