    GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

    Was looking on play.com for GTA4 and found the minimum requirements:

    Windows XP with SP3 / Vista with SP1
    1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4GHz AMD Athlon X2 64 or equivalent
    1GB RAM (1.5GB for Vista)
    16GB HDD Space
    256MB nVidia 7900, ATi X1900 or equivalent
    DVD-ROM Drive
    Internet connection required for installation and online play

    They seem pretty steep for minimum, more of a recommended. Especially the graphic cards, the 7900 is still quite a high end DX9 card.

    7900 is a 4 generation old graphics card. If you're running a graphics card that low you probably already experianced GTA4 on xbox360/ps3 the way it will look with that GPU. I could be wrong but I would not be inclined to say a 7900 with be maxing out the game. Hopefully thats the minimum and reccomended is at least only 3 generations ago. I want it to look ALOT better than the console versions.

    Which is why I said for DX9 games.

    And considering Crysis has a minimum requirement of 6800.

    A 7900 is only 1 generation behind your 8800...And if that is the minimum, I doubt your 8800 320mb will be running it max at liquid fps.

    Yep, that looks to be a hogger with those requirements, hopefully, it will be super optimized, otherwise, we will have another UBI Vegas game in our hands. Anybody knows what the RECOMMENDED Reqs will be?

    Re: GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

    Just did a search and came up with this:

    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

    Not so specific with the graphic card on this one, but recommends DX10 card, which I like the sound of.

    Edit: Just found another site with this:

    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

    Re: GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

    I'd be willing to bet that the 8800 series will not dissapoint with this game though. If I cant run it in 1680x1050 with all the settings maxed no AA or AF, then something is probably wrong or they changed ALOT more than how it was on the 360/ps3. I mean the game doesnt look anything close to crysis level. I cant see why it would reccomend a DX10 card, the game is only DX9 correct? And in the amount of time the game was being done up for the PC I doubt they implemented DX10. Unless of course the whole releasing it on consoles first was a total ploy and it really was originally built with PC hardware in mind. In which case I would take back everything I said and absolutely be thrilled at the fact that it could look good enough to warrent crippling my system. I have been waiting for something to bring it to its knees. An excuse to upgrade :-P

    Dual core but they don't say which one... Hmmm. I am giving myself a present for Xmas and even though I have an ECS 8800GT with Accelero S1 HS, I think a GX260 would yield me better result for that eye candy look.

    Re: GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

    Wait!, I just looked at the "Recommended" requirements again and I now see that they list a "Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz". A Quad Core??? Hmmm, I see myself having issues with this game even after getting my GTX260.

    Re: GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

    Theres no way. Most games now a days dont even take advantage of dual cores... O.o I could be wrong but I would HIGHLY doubt a quad core is even reccomended.
