Unbelievable GTA IV Shots Look Like Real Photos Of New York City

Kotaku - This week's gaming conversation has been dominated by Grand Theft Auto V, but these screenshots from a modded PC version of GTA IV are the most mind-blowing thing you'll see today. (Grand Theft Auto IV, PC)

Ah yes so Pretty!

Can't wait for GTAV PC and the ICEnhancer Mod!

Playing GTAV with photo realistic Graphics will be wonderful!

ice enchancer is overrated its usually a buggy mess imho
clmstr  +   493d ago
Well, tbh the only bug I bumped into while using Icenhancer was a red sky one.
You know, if you've been using this mod for a long time, going back to vanilla IV is not enjoyable at all.
Erudito87  +   493d ago
Have you played the game in length of time with the mod? It is unplayable. I have a high specced modern system and fps is quite erratic.

Freakin' Gorgeous.

I needs the PC version.
clmstr  +   493d ago
That's why we need V for PC asap.
clmstr  +   493d ago
Jealous console owner disagreed lol.
starchild  +   493d ago
Agreed. It will be great.

im sure your going to need a $4k pc to run this,
Linwelin  +   493d ago
prolly about $800 really depends where you get your hardware from :)
Murad  +   493d ago
I'm running a 700 dollar build and mine rapes these specs, so no.
aliengmr  +   493d ago
Nope, not even close.
sourav93  +   493d ago
I ran it fine back when I had my GTX 570, and that's a $200 card. So $800 would be for the whole package. So to sum it up, no; you don't need a $4000 PC to run this.

No, actually for these screens, they turn up settings to max and take screenshots, even though the game will run at like <10 frames per second.

They only need one frame for a picture.
Eiffel  +   493d ago
Yet you can find videos on youtube with ENB's like these running at an average of 30-40 FPS with everything maxed.

For example,

Somebody employ this guy! Too much talent wasted for free. Put him in a gaming company and let him do his magic B-)
ninjagoat  +   493d ago
Then watch him become a sellout to the consoles nah. Click his donate icon ;).
neoMAXMLC  +   493d ago
I really need to know which mods these are exactly and how to apply them because all the ICEnhancer mods I've tried only seem to make the game look worse.
JunioRS101  +   493d ago
GTA 5 icenhancer is going to be so ridiculous...
urwifeminder  +   493d ago
Was going to try this once but it was not patched to latest version of the game to play online so have not bothered.
Bonerboy  +   493d ago
Wowza! Cant wait for GTAV PC! MMMMmmmmm

I feel like some console player wrote this, finding mods for the first time

The buildings are amazing, I like the the light reflecting of the
taxi too.

No idea why people keep saying you need a high-end PC to run GTA IV with ICEHANCER END etc to run it @ 60fps 1080p

A midrange i5 with a 680GTX is enough to run it @ 60fps 1080p.

Sure it my dip from time to time to 45fps, but still.
