More about athlon dual core good
  1. NO, to max gta4 you will need a quad core go for the athlon x4 about $20 more and also needs min 1GB of video ram
  2. is my cpu only the problem
  3. Try it. I have seen some people max that game out with a piece of crap system. If you haven't already bought it, get a X4 and a hd 5770.

    You don't need 1gb... :pfff: Than I couldn't max out BF:BC2 on with my hd6850!
  5. I can't max gta4 on a 3ghz quad with a 6950 at 1080p. My CPU is running on average at 85% util as well as the gpu. If you are buying a cpu to play this game I highly recommend a quad core. GTA4 is one of the few games that is highly CPU bound and takes advantage of more cores.

    Ummmm.... Are you sure? I have seen people max that game with a GT240 and a Pentium dual core. If your CPU is running @ 85%, then that means that you don't need the extra 15%. A hd6950 will EASILY max that game. What FPS do you get? You shouldn't have any problem maxing that game getting 80 + FPS.How much RAM do you have?
  7. I am not 100% sure but I think GTA4 uses 3 cores so an Athlon x3 would be much better than the dual and doesn't cost much more.

    My Athlon II X3 440 @ 3.3Ghz plays BFBC2 at max with an average of 57 FPS. They are good CPUs.
  9. look at this
    http://www.yougamers.com/gameometer/10296/
    this will test your system and tell you if it is good enough and says quad core and 1GB 4870 and 3GB ram to max
  10. You will not truly max out GTAIV without 2GB GDDR, I have 1055t @ constant 3.8GHZ, and 5850 @ 900MHZ, and only thing I cannot max out is due to GDDR limit!

    9800gt will not Max out GTAIV, and you definately need a minimum x4 CPU
