I have:

i5 3570k
8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz

Can the MSI GTX 670 PE 2GB MAX OUT GTA IV? I mean absolute MAXIMUM settings, highest on EVERYTHING. At 1080p? Is the 2GB enough?

It's impossible to max out GTA IV regardless of what hardware you have. If you max out the draw distance, the game becomes horribly CPU bound, and not even your i5 3570k will be able to keep up. The game also has issues with actually being able to use more than 1GB of VRAM despite the fact it needs more than 1GB to run at maximum settings.

I wouldn't worry about maxing out GTA IV, it was a horrible port that runs terribly regardless of what hardware you have. The 670 will be able to max out most other games though. You don't really need more than 2GB of VRAM unless you are running Skyrim with a lot of graphics mods and high res textures, or if you are planning on gaming across multiple displays. At 1080p you don't need to have more than 2GB right now, so there isn't much point in spending extra for the 4GB version of that card.

^He's right. GTA sux on the PC. That card is a good one and like he said, should be sufficient to max out most if not all games.

Will a GTX 670 max out GTA V?

Too bad I really enjoyed GTA IV. Despite it being a horrible console port, I still found it fun. If you want more performance, add the ultimate texture pack, and install iCenchancer 2.1. It'll give you more performance, and look 10x better.

a i5 3570k & GTX 670 will do 60fps, just don't raise the bars related to view distance more than 40-50.

That is the reason its intensive. Its like saying, a 9500GT and a Pentium 4 will do 60fps, just run it at 320x240 at lowest details.

The game looks terrible with a view distance of less than 75.

I believe that its unreal to think that his processor and his gpu can't max out this game I did a fraps of the game and recorded it through fraps onto my scratch drive uploading now. This is my setup. I'll update when my fraps is done uploading. My mic cuts out sometimes because I feel like I get nervous it gets better towards the end :\

less than 75 looks terrible :heink: 
then what about the console version that have view distance around 10 (with other effects around low as well) how it looks to you?

GTA4 at 1080p, max settings(expect view distance) looks good compared to the console 720p, low settings, 20-30fps.

It looks great but the Aliasing is out of flipping control.

Obviously. why are you bringing up consoles. You are assuming I think the console version looks good, when it doesn't. Why are consoles even being brought up?

Lol yea honestly why bring them up. I do understand what he is saying though hes basically saying from a visual standpoint that the game isn't a poor looking game and he is using a console as a comparison I wouldn't look to deep into his comments other than he is trying to make a comparison visually.

Even at max settings gta iv isnt that good looking from what i rember havent played it in a long time. and a 670 should max that game pretty decently.

It can it can. The game was a poor PC port I will admit but there are plenty of mods that turn around and make the game look awesome. A quick search on youtube will verify this.

The point is that millions console games found gta4 good looking (playing like that 720p, low settings, 20-30fps), and you saying that playing gta4 with 1080p, 60fps, max settings(expect view distance), looks terrible just becasue you donot have view distance more than 75.
The thing is that haveing view distance around 50 is good enough, it is not 10(like consoles) that you have a lot of pop-in.

That is because they are console gamers and do not know any better. Most of em anyways.

Coming from someone who started off with the original GTA games I would say that the game is absolutely awesome looking now course its not perfect but its come a long way and looking at GTA V it should be rad on the pc when and if it comes out

Quite a good rig you have but you should know that GTA IV is very badly optimized game so I think you should be able to set quality settings on ultra but distance andAA should be reduced. However, you card is fair enough to max out all the games made till know (not sure about GTA V) at 1080p on above 40 fps.
