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

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!

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?

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.

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
