Hello!

I have played GTA V on both ps3 and ps4 and at first didn't want to buy it for pc again. But..... after its been released, I kinda want to buy it again :lol:.

The problem is my PC, its not bad, but it isnt great either:

CPU: Intel i5-2400S 2.50GHz

GPU: GeForce GTX960 2GB

Motherboard: ASUS P8H67 RevB3

RAM: 8GB DDR3

My GPU has been recently updated, however I think my CPU might be a serious bottleneck, both in general as for GTAV. My motherboard won't support fourth generation i5 processors. However it will support (after a BIOS update) several third generation (I was thinking 3570K). My question is, is this a good upgrade? Will it make a difference?

Or do you guys have any other suggestions?

Help would be appreciated :D

The CPU is still good imo. It's definitely not bottlenecking your GPU. Is your game performance bad?

So, do you think that I would be able to run GTAV on this system with decent graphics settings?

How much difference would it make if I were to update the CPU to a 3570?

This should answer your question.

This guy has 3570k. So you should have the same performance as him.
