Nah, you're going to need a dedicated GFX card.
@AuSsIeThUnDeR36: What graphics card does it have?
It has 1 GB dedicated AMD Radeon whatever that is. It uses crossfire to enable cpu to go to high performance when gaming. I dunno I'm no tech guru. I have original Far Cry and I can max the settings on that which makes the game look awesome but a steady warm stream of air comes through the vents, i guess that's normal when gaming at high graphic rate.

Compaq Presario CQ57
1.3 Ghz Dual Core AMD Processor
ATI HD Radeon 6680 2GB
Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium
Running Grand Theft Auto IV Retail Version 22.214.171.124
Resolution - 1366x768 60Hz
Texture Quality - Low
Reflection Quality - Off
Night Shadows - Off
Water Quality - Low
Shadow Quality - Off
VSync - Off
Definition - On
Draw Distance - 1
Detail Distance - 1
Vehicle Density - 30
Game runs at about 15 FPS outside while 30 FPS in doors. It appears to run just fine for a £275 laptop. I'm also running VisualIV with FPS increase tweak and these command lines:
-nomemrestrict -norestrictions -noprecache -novblank
I'm also running Razer Game Booster as well before I boot the game which sees about 5 FPS increase too.
Any other helpful advice would be needed but for now it will do I suppose.

My current setup is
Intel i5 2500k @ 3.8GHz
8 GB Ram
EVGA GTS 450 1GB
Tomorrow I will be receiving my GTX 660 in the mail and I'm pretty excited to see what's in store for me. My CPU is already a great one, but the GPU has been bottlenecking me with this build. Finally tomorrow I will have a nice build all around and I'm pretty excited and I think I have the confidence at all High, all 100 I should have a playable 30 FPS game on my hands.
What do you all think?

Where did u got this test or something?
Posted 10 July 2013 - 09:53 AM
No run for me. Can anyone suggest any good gaming laptop's that are on more of the cheap end if not totally expensive!? Something a little than $1,000?
Posted 20 July 2013 - 07:31 PM
I'm hoping someone can provide a bit of advice. Currently my setup is an:
Windows 7 SP1 - 64-Bit
Intel i5-2310 Quad Core @ 2.9Ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB
Using the launch commands:
-norestrictions -noprecache -novblank -nomemrestrict -percentvidmem 100
I can run the game with these settings:
Reflections: Very High
Water: Very High
Night Shadows: Off
View Distance: 25
Detail Distance: 31
Vehicle Density: 51
And I get a stable framerate of 30FPS. I used to have Shadows at Very High, but I kept View and Detail Distance at 21 and 10, and Vehicle Density at 33 (these are the console settings). It would dip below 30 once and a while, mostly near Middle Park.
I'm wondering if I should upgrade my CPU or my GPU. I'm leaning more towards GPU, and getting a GTX 660 Ti (2GB). I think my CPU is good enough as it is, though I'd like to hear your say on it. Shadows are more GPU dependent, right? So a GTX 660 Ti would probably help a lot, and free up some Video Memory since my settings right now are only using up around 750 out of 1024.
What do you think?
EDIT: I just ran a benchmark on GTA IV.
Average FPS: 64.09
Duration: 37.63 sec
CPU Usage: 55%
System memory usage: 39%
Video memory usage: 85%
What do you think about the CPU and GPU usage?
I do think this isn't a very good benchmark though. As it says, my average FPS was 64. But that's a load, I usually get 30 ingame. Is there a better benchmark video available somewhere? I don't think the default one is a very good representation of the game.

|Got the game a while ago and half the graphics didn't load. Recently had an urge to play it after seeing the trailer for GTA 5 but again realized I couldn't play it. I emailed a few companies with my PC name and they said I need a new graphics card. I have a HP Pavilion P6-2010uk but don't know what graphics card to get. Can anyone help me out???|
If you are missing textures it's most likely your graphics memory filling up. I would recommend anything above 1GB of memory.
Seems I'm save
