    Odds are your game will be pretty slow on that machine, as GTA IV will make best use of a quad core. Also video card is pretty dated for that game's requirements. Try and read some more posts on this subject, it's been asked and answered a lot.
  2. Also, remember that GTAIV is terribly optimized for PC, so even a computer that *should* logically be able to handle it fine may suffer from erratically bad performance.

  3. That Pentium D is bottlenecking that 9800GTX.
    You should get a better CPU.

    GTA IV tends to run better with quad core CPUs and a decent GPU like a GTX 460, to run well.
    That GPU for playing GTA IV at say 720p with maxed details is okay, but that CPU will be holding you back.
