Will my laptop run GTA IV? if so, where to buy (digitally only)?

Recommended Posts

OnlyAsking

Hi, I am interested in purchasing GTA IV (not EFLC, too much vulgar content) for single player free roam modding, and I need to know if my laptop will be able to run the game comfortably.

 

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5 with the following specs:

-AMD Quad-Core Processor A12-970P

-AMD Radeon RX 540 (2GB dedicated VRAM)

-16GB RAM

 

Please know that I am happy with 25-30FPS (and will lock to such an FPS if frames are higher to prevent overheating) and medium settings.

 

Secondly, if my laptop will run the game, where can I legally buy the game? Steam is $24.95AUD which is very steep for an 11 year old game with a poor PC port which I already own on PS3, so I was wondering if there are any other online retailers selling the game, I have heard negative things about G2A and I'm not sure if it's even legal. My ;laptop has no optical CD drive (way of the future I guess) so physical copies are NOT an option unfortunately.

 

Thank You

If you're looking to get it legit while still maintaining modding flexibility, I'd try buying it from here. I got it from there in like 2012 and it gave me a completely unpatched download. From there you can just update to 1.0.4.0 (or even 1.0.3.0) and you should be good.

Thanks but it's $49.95 on there (GTA V is cheaper at $47.95!!!).

Damn my bad man. Australia really do be like that sometimes. I got it on sale for just $5 back then.

G2A had some bad reviews recently, but in general, it is completely legal buying games there, you just have to check if the seller has good ratings, just like eBay or any kind of marketplace.
