That's a dual core AMD chip (technically it's a quad core with 2 cores disabled) and a 512 MB GPU. If you are running high resolutions, it won't run very well.

Morris, that's not a bad PC by any means but GTAIV is coded in a way to really puts an emphasis on 4 cores and 768 MB or higher video RAM. That will run most other games very, very well.

GTAIV might lag a bit but the other 3 games will run great.

As long as you have your video/view distance settings on low you will be fine.

I have almost the same specs as what you posted above and the game runs fine at med-settings. Of course there will be a lag spike here n there, specially when alot of action is going on.
