Hello! I have a Dual Core E5200 at 2.5 GHz (Stock), 2GB RAM amd nVidia GeForce 9600GT 1GB Graphics Card. So guys, what do you think? I just want a playable fps, I don’t care about the graphics settings very much. So?
Details are, I generally game at 1024x768 resolution coz I have a 15 inch CRT. Dad’s gonna buy me a 19 inch lcd soon (1280x1024 then, maybe). And I don’t want to overclock anything coz I don’t have the money to buy another processor or gpu (I’m a student).
GTAIV is really heavy on the CPU, even if you got a killer GPU. That's why it has problems with even the high end rig's on higher resolutions. I was running it with a Quad firstname.lastname@example.org, MSIGTS250 and 6 gig RAM and it still wouldn't play on high settings, with the same resolution as yours.
To answer your question, yes it will run. Just make sure you set the details on medium, detail distance, etc on low.
