On what resolution ?
4830 can play it maxed out on resolutions like 1280x1024 but on anything higher,you may want to lower the settings in order to get a smooth gameplay

I disagree. I dont' think any 512MB card can max out GTA4 at any normal resolutions. (800x600 maybe...) The view distance will kill the frame rates.

How much will you be getting? Try it and tell us.

Edit: When it came out Hardocp did some testing of the game and a couple of different 5870s including a 512MB version of that card. Its a game that likes GPU memory.

View distance in game has more impact on the CPU than the video card. The greater view distance the more objects the CPU has to render. Games like GTA IV with many objects are often more dependent on the CPU because all of those buildings that needs to be rendered in the background.

That being said I can't say if that video card is good enough for high settings in GTA IV

Very true. But the more things the CPU is rendering, the more things the GPU has to draw. And when dealing with only 512MBs of GPU RAM, you'll run into trouble.

sharing memory will be slow. And not recommended as most gpus run on gddr5

If you have all settings set to maximum you need 1.2gb of VRAM, and gta iv is very cpu based so i dont think you can max it out :(

you need core i5 overclock + at least geforce 560+ / radeon 7800+
to maybe think of maxing gta 4 out at high resolution.

I have a i5 + 8 go of ram + geforce 550 ti top 1 go and have lag at medium settings on 1600 * 900..

Gta 4 is badly coded for pc

No it isn't, and especially in this game.


It only uses 2 cores, and is poorly optimized.

The amd is stock, and has poor core performance to boot.


You are going to need to overclock it to at least 4 ghz.

I've already overclocked to 4GHz by just setting the clock multplier to x20 in Bios Settings. Working fine for me without any voltage change :)

Cool.

What is your monitors resolution? Then we can talk about what kind of graphics card you are gonna need.

You have a better cpu than the guy in the video.

This guy is running it at 1680x1050 and has a worse processor than you.



You should get a very playable game experience.
Especially if you download MSI afterburner and also overclock your 4830.


Just lower texture quality settings and view distance.
