I'd say somewhere around Medium settings.

 

@coolboy: Where did you get the game from? Is there any crack installed?

How's your performance/framerate? You could use FRAPS or a benchmark to find out.

According to some statistics, my laptop can't run the game but it appears it can with a few tweaks here and there. Last night I did some testing with settings in the menu and command lines.

 

My Specs:

 

Compaq Presario CQ57

 

1.3 Ghz Dual Core AMD Processor

ATI HD Radeon 6680 2GB

4GB Ram

Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium

 

Running Grand Theft Auto IV Retail Version 1.0.7.0

 

Settings:

 

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

 

266MB/386MB available.

 

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.

It's because your PC specs are the minimum requirements, and there isn't enough video memory, thus "the ground is invisible."

So I've been playing on everything High, literally everything high, with the view distance and detail distance at 60, vsync off and getting a steady 30 FPS easily.

 

My current setup is

 

Intel i5 2500k @ 3.8GHz

8 GB Ram

EVGA GTS 450 1GB

Windows 7

 

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?

I'd say maxed out @ 60FPS. Say something around 45FPS with ENB.

Huh, I thought I posted here. Oh well.

 

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

8GB RAM

AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB

 

Using the launch commands:

-norestrictions -noprecache -novblank -nomemrestrict -percentvidmem 100

 

I can run the game with these settings:

1600x900

Textures: High

Reflections: Very High

Water: Very High

Shadows: High

Night Shadows: Off

Anistrophic: x8

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.

 

Statistics

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.

Nice, I can run it on High settings with about 35 FPS. Nearly everything on max except for the View Distance, Draw Distance, Vehicle density Shadow Density and a few other things.

 

High Settings - 35+ FPS

Medium Settings - 40 FPS

Low Settings - 50 FPS.

 

Runs smoothly on High, enjoying the game so far. I am also using the 1.0.4.0 patch.

 

Laptop Specs:

 

Intel Core I5 Mobile 2.5 Ghz

4GB RAM.

Windows 8

500 GB Hard Disk

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 7650m 1GB.

Well yougamers finally released their benchmarking tool for GTA IV. You can test your PC here. Although I have to say, it is very odd that it puts the minimum / recomended requirements so close to each other on the scale, that the Quad core literally has no effect, so this might be of no indication at all as to whether or not your PC can really run it.

 

But I would say it is safe to say that you will be able to run the game well if you exceed the requirements by a comfortable margin.

 

Yougamers GTA IV test

 

Click on "Can you play it?" if you didn't figure that out already.

 

System Reqs are as follows:

 

Minimum System Requirements

Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3

1.8GHz Intel Core2Duo or 2.4GHz AMD Athlon X2 64

1 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 1.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista)

16 GB free hard drive space

256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900

 

Well, i am new here and the said option is not coming up. Please help.

Recommended System Requirements

Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3

2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad or 2.1GHz AMD Phenom X3

2.5 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 2.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista)

18 GB Free Hard Drive Space

512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870

Gta 4 requires a lot of your ram,memory and graphics since the opcodes and graphics are highly advanced and source consuming. i have played gta 4 and during the past few years i have noticed that it requires more ram i was having 2 gb ram which is recommended but things appeared invisible and there was no road and buildings only there was the player and some other things. then i converted it to 3gb my game run perfectly but it needed graphic card so i put the nvidia 9400G and whatever it is then i played so i got maximum 20 fps

 

The real strategy lies behind the computer performance if you are having newly advanced pc with multicore processors good graphic card and 4 gb ram then definately it will run like hell on 60 fps i bet
