  1. should do. might be worth OCing your CPU though as GTA loves processors!
  2. What PSU, make & model? It DOES make a difference.

  3. Ultra lsp series 550watt.

  4. overclock is a must. u can get those cpus to 3.4 on good air cooling.
  5. System Specs:
    Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5GHz (Stock Speed)
    Corsair 2GB DDR2 667 EVGA Geforce 8600GT 512MB
    2X Western Digital 120GB SATA 3.0GB/s
    Foxconn 45CMX Motherboard
    Windows Vista Home Premium SP1

    Is this good enough to compare to my computer specs, well except for the weaker video card.
  6. How much did you pay for that PSU? Ultra vary a lot between different models, some are rubbish.Run 3DMark06, that will test your system.

  7. I payed $60 for the PSU, but I already bought the game and it plays pretty nicely, better than I thought. I have v sync on, medium texture detail, highest rendering quality and everything else on the second highest setting I think(Very High) on 1080p, and 60hz.

    You are right about that, but i cant do anything about that because of my motherboard.

    Why? What's wrong with your motherboard that's stopping you from overclocking?
  10. It came with the Gateway Desktop, and there are no settings for overclocking when I search my bios. The motherboard is Gateway MS-7399
