Will you guys shut up about these Specs being fake. THEY ARE NOT FAKE, if I thought for a second these specs were fake do you think I would have shoved the story up on GTA4.net. I will quote directly from the article shall I :-

To take advantage of these new visual upgrades, Rockstar has released the official system requirements for the game.

These are the specs as stated by ROCKSTAR, they are NOT fake.

Well I guess it's a horrible port.......

Perhaps we should test the Port first before we give such statements but i have also a bad feeling about that.

by the minimum system requirements no because the 7900 series is faster than the 8500GT anyone with a slower card than the 7900 series like me is gonna need luck playing the game above low...... Since CroakStar just made a horrible port by the looks of things

I really hope this doesn't end up being some sh*tty port like Bully, i cant believe that game, i hope they release patch for that soon or i wont buy the game next time, if i have to end up wasting my money on something i cant use.

And these requirements are horrendous. Worst port ever? And the first game to require quad core in recommended.

What the hell is this, have they even bothered to optimise this? - I was expecting the computer I've put so many upgrades into to ace this game, and it doesn't even get the reccomended grade on everything:

2.5GB RAM - I have 3GB, - Passed
AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz - I have a 2.6GHz AMD 64 Dual Core, which is just above minimum... Come on Rockstar?!? - Failed on Recomended
18GB Reccomended Hard Drive Space - I have a 160GB HD, and most of it is already consumed sad.gif - Passed, but I'll have to stop installing programs...
512MB NVIDIA 8600 - Zotac 8800GT 512MB - Passed

I'm not really pleased with these requirements, I would expect a computer like mine to be above recommended on everything, not just a few things. Better be a brilliant game sigh.gif

I play all the games at 40+ FPS, and this IS one of the worst ports I've ever seen.

Look at Crysis or Far Cry 2.

Crysis is comparable to GTA IV to you in terms of graphics?

well
whats the point
we would be happy if GTA IV min will require

280GTX x3 THRID SLI
QX9770 X2
8GB RAM (800Mhz wont do)
250HDD
OS : Windows 6.1 Beta (double vista req)

are you still happy it comes to PC with that?
they piss us off so we stop spam them with PC version of IV
they simpley give us a favor

Well...

Far Cry 2 - Better Graphics than GTAIV but lower requirements
Crysis - Much Better Graphics than GTAIV but same requirements
Fallout 3 - Equal Graphics to GTAIV but much lower requirements

I really hope that Rockstar made at least an acceptable Job here confused.gif

What a sad bunch of miserable F*cks!!

I am proud to know that this game will be "future proof", So the next time I upgrade I will see big advantages in the game!


the requirements just show that R* wants to take advantage of the current gen tech, rarther than using the old fashioned stuff like in previous GTA games!

I see many people here already relegating the game into begin a crappy port but I don't think it's fair to say that just yet....

I mean honestly I think so far charmingcharlies post has prolly got to be the closest to assessing the situation correctly...

I mean imo the processor req for both recc. and min. are high but at the same time all the other specs are inline with most PC games today. I believe that those recommended specs are to run the game at the highest resolution possible with all gfx options at max.

I do not believe that those are the recommended specs required to run the game good. For example I plan on running the game at 1280x1024 so I am sure that my specs don't need to meet the recommended for me to do so.

I mean look at far cry 2....their recommended specs are quite low...but after spending some time with the game I am sure that a PC with the specs that they recommended wouldn't be able to run that game on max !!!

So again I am guessing that those specs are to run the game at the highest resolution possible with all gfx options at max. Now if you do plan on doing that then those the processor req. are are high...there is no beating around it...but if you only plan on running it on 1024x768 then you would fine that the specs required to do that aren't so bad...


I mean we have to believe that R* has some common sense. If they release a game that only 3 people can run good then what's the point in that.

I can fully understand making use of Dual Core processors. Why is it only 1.8GHz Core2Duo, but 2.4GHz AMD 64 X2, is the difference really that great?

I'd expect something more like this for recommended:
1.5GB RAM (2GB for Vista),
2.4GHz AMD 64 X2 4800+ ,
8GB Hard Drive Space,
Nvidia Geforce 8600GT 512MB,

- The processor is the most shocking in my opinion, I'm still trying to get around the fact that my 64 X2 5000+ 2.6GHz is only just above minimum.

maybe but its still very high requirements for a game that is not much of a thing

FFS... EVERYONE WAS SAYING THAT THEY'D PREFERRE *TRUE* REQUIREMENTS A FEW DAYS AGO


So why all of a sudden you all slate a developer for giving true requirements??


Look at the Crysis *Minimum* requirements, any system with them exact specs would not work at all with Crysis!!! even as system with the reccomended specs would struggle!

With these req. "croackstar" haha made the worst port in the history of pc gaming. All the min specs are pretty much xbox 360 equivalent.

Hopefully when one of the other PC previews come out some it will shed some light on the PC system performance to give people a better idea as to weather you need to upgrade or not....

Hi

I was wondering about how my pc will take the game... better then my 360 or not...

I have Core 2 d 3.0 GHz (I thinks it's okay for at processer although it is recommended with quad core)
Geforce 8800 GTX 768 mb
only 500 gb of hd space sad.gif not always enough... (will not be in about 4 years where the ultra high definition will come out, and ask for soemnthing more then a tb for just 20 min of a movie))
then of course 4 gb of virtual DDR2 memory (a bit sh*tty, cuz i only use around 3,5 while I am running xp sad.gif )

I know that this is a spec of a middle class pc today... but it could still run Far Cry 2 on all setting on Ultra.

I can say I was more relaxt after I saw the reqs for the game... cuz I personally thought that I should have a minimum of dual gf card of mine, to run the game.

But can anybody answer my question? those of you who really understand the difrense...

(I hope that the download able content, which they talk about allready will be there in the PC version, if anybody knows better please answer)

thx in advance...

i cleaned my pc up for gaming now. im ready to go! too bad its coming out late. does not matter too much. i have a 360.

also i really dont like the graphics in the pc vs. it does not have that many blur/smoke/bloom. it fells like a old dx9 game with high quality textures.

QUOTE
version will allow players to turn the city's traffic density up,


this is the part im happy about. better game play!
