Hello guys! I just upgraded my pc so I was wondering if it is good enough to play GTA IV...
So, this is my old PC specs...
Asus P5GPL-X
Intel Pentium 4 3.21GHz
ATi Sapphire Radeon HD 4770 PCI-E 512MB 750MHz Clock speed 800MHz Bus speed 40nm Shader Model 4.1
Sound Blaster 5.1
500Gb ATA 7,200rpm
500W PSU
I only got 16.07 fps on the lowest settings with these specs now can anyone tell me am I able to play with my new specs get better results and quality?
New specs...
Asus P5Q SE2 Intel P45 Express Chipset FSB 1600
Intel Core 2 Quad Desktop processor Q8400 2.66GHz
4Gb DDR2 RAM Kingston
ATi Sapphire Radeon HD 4770 512MB 750MHz Clock Speed 800MHz Bus speed 40nm Shader Model 4.1
500W PSU

I was also wondering if the PSU is strong enough to hold these new specs cause I'm afraid of hardware failure...
I will appreciate every reply posted

You might get more frames but it will still lag no matter what... The game is just a crappy port made for extremely fast machines.... I gave up a few months ago....

Your PSU is fine, unless it's a no-name underperformer....

Oooook... but still I will get at least 20 or above fps on low right? or maybe on medium maybe I don't know. Thanks for the reply and I do agree with you about GTA IV, I had n xbox version of it but my xbox is now broken rrod so I'm now on PC and I really love the game!
