Depends what you mean if you need a gpu to play in general yes, or at least have an integrated one into the cpu or mobo.
And even then you wont run games well enough unless u have a dedicated gpu , and if you meant if you need a good gpu to play then i think you do and at least a quad core because the game is very badly ported.
i just downloaded gta iv, so do i need a graphic card to play plzz answer. thankx
Depends on what your existing MBOD has? I assume that you have an onboard graphics, or an existing GPU or you wouldn't be able to use your computer. You need to know what your existing hardware supports. Thn, compare that with the minimum specs found on the game box. If you downloaded the software from the internet, I am assuming that it came with a License? If not, we can't help you with that. Either way, the bottom line is the same. Your exisint hardware must at least support the games minimum specs. Good luck.
Due to the game's rather demanding requirements I would be amazed if a non dedicated GPU could play the game smoothly. So if you are going through integrated
video do not expect very good results.
if you buy the game you get a box and on that box it shows system requirements.
toms does not help or condone piracy. so dont ask for help with a pirated game.
There is a chance he could have bought it through a digital distribution service such as Steam, so his downloading could have been perfectly legal.
I do agree that he should have looked at system requirements however before hand no matter the case however.
