GearNuke: "Screenshot comparison between GTA V PC running on Normal and Very High quality preset versus the PS3 and PS4 version of the game."
if you are GTA fan you know you wouldn't wait that long to play GTA.
Not true at all. Its called patience. Something I learned at a very young age was good things come to those that wait.
I have the patience but have had a ton of fun with this game twice, now I am just sitting back and letting the mods kick in before I buy it for PC.
Who the fuck downvoted you for saying "Good things come to those who wait!?" WTF!? That couldn't be more true... Don't listen to anyone Testfire, I'm with you buddy. You cant make a 5 minute chicken and expect it to taste like a 3 hour slowly roasted one.
And what did patience get you? I'm playing at highest setting on pc and there is almost literately no difference...it's very disappointing and honestly they hardly touched up the game for the pc and no one is calling them out for this. This is a over-hyped Console port and everyone is turning a blind eye to it just because its gta. Those pc screenshots they showed months before it came out on pc? ARE COMPLETE BULLSHOTS AND BULLSHIT.....ON PC IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THOSE PR SCREENSHOTS http://www.pcgamer.com/gta-... ALL LIES No one is calling them out for this but we did it for every other game that did it? Why not gta 5? It does not run like shit....that's the only positive thing I can think about on how to compliment the pc version....is this are standard for a good pc version? It works and runs acceptable? Oh wow it runs at 60fps, So does every other pc game! We have waited for almost 2 years and still...no exclusive graphic features other than 4k? Which by the way 1/10,000,000 of the potential pc gamers who play on steam out there are the only one who could enjoy that let alone run it!Where is workshop support? What about physX? It has no exclusive pc features! Ohh wait it has a custom radio station, bet that took them awhile to put that in the game.
It's crazy how the console versions are able to keep up. From what I can tell, those PC screenshots don't look anything like what the PR photos lead people to believe. PS3 version still looks great. And it came out almost 2 years ago on 9 year-old hardware (explains why PC elites are so insecure). @ Testfire "good things come to those that wait" Are you implying that the console versions weren't any good? lol They were great, actually. We played the heists. We had fun.
@ TheRealCrazedBaffoon,yeah here on N4G people will disagree for the silliest reasons, but whatever, I don't sugarcoat my opinions. @ Fries1223, patience got me a game that actually works. My PS3 copy never worked right, actually the game must have done something to my hdd because I tried multiple copies and tried restoring the database on my system but I always got freezes and infinite loading screens with ONLY GTA V and never any other games. And from comparison of my PS3 copy to my PC copy yes I'm happy and don't need "exclusive PC features". @ShinMaster, read my reply to Fries.
True, but I still bought the PC version after trading the PS3 and PS4 version along the way..
I did. I have played and beat every gta since GTA3. I knew the PC version was going to be head and shoulders above the console versions and did not want to settle.
how much do you guys(and gals) think a PC would cost to run this game on very high settings and be 60fps?
I feel that this could be a loaded question...
no seriously, im currently running on my HP pavillion laptop with an AMD Radeon 6770m 1gb, and i feel sad that i cant experience this game in its epicness :( so what am i looking at to spend on a PC (minus the monitor) thanks in advance edit: or what Video card would you recommend?
I built my PC the AMD route. Fx 6300, Asus M5a99 evo 2.0, 8 GB G Skill RAM, and a Sapphire R9 270x. I'm running GTA V as well as most games at 1080p 60fps with most settings on high/very high/ultra. I think my PC cost around $500-$600 when all said and done. It took me a while and I shopped around on deals for components, and my video card I got for $85 used on Ebay. The only downside is my video card right now, while its very capable at the moment, devs are really starting to use vram and my 2GB card is starting to not be enough. Soon a 3 or 4 GB card will be required to play at the settings I like.
Honestly I would expect at least two thousand. Depends on what res you're using. I personally would just go for normal or high settings, 60 fps is worth it IMO.
A couple grand 2-4 k? Gta 5's highest settings is 4K
I would suggest this link http://www.gamersnexus.net/... It's basically a benchmark for GTA V using multiple graphic cards.
digital foundary says all you need is a GTX 750 Ti ($130) and Core i3 4130 ($120), not too demanding at all http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
People are still under the illusion that PC gaming is waaay expensive and you need really expensive hardware to run today's game ha ha not this generation
Without a monitor, $700 to 1k. Too many variables. (Sales and Sizes)
http://www.forbes.com/sites... A Gtx 970 will be great bang for your buck, especially with the 4gb of VRAM. AMD also do great budget cards, they just didnt benchmark as high with this particular game.
Agreed I have a 970, but they are really 3.5gb (the other 500mb being quite useless)cards not that it actually makes a difference as they are phenomenal cards for the money.
500-800 including OS and peripherals. This will get you a really good budget amd build. I'm getting 8 gb ram, fx 8350, R9 270x, Gigabyte 970 ud3p and a 500 watt psu. I have no idea if this build will be any good at all but meh, it's 600 something bucks lol.
Dont go with AMD, spend a bit more. Over the course of time you will save money because AMD uses twice the power of Intel. I have a 970 and love it, but from what I hear on the net, people with a 750ti are pushing this game on high settings just fine.
Not much. Have you not seen those screenshots? $600 maybe, minus the OS and monitor.
Only thing that makes the wait worth it is the mods. Being able to play superman to n GTA4 was pretty fun You could have just as easily enjoyed the vanilla GTA V on last gen consoles and enjoy the game as much as you would on PC.
Rockstar has said they will not support mods. I'm sorry to burst bubbles. http://www.craveonline.com/...
Some of that was already cracked with OpenIV 2.5 https://www.youtube.com/wat... It's only a matter of time before the whole game is available to be modded
It's not up to Rockstar to support mods. It's never been up to them, PC has the most active modding community. GTA IV was proof of that.
In almost all the pictures the PS4 wins, or is exactly the same...WTF Look at details like signs and stuff, the PC versions is washed out.
Completely agree, I have a gaming PC and PS4, I'm shocked that the PS4 fared so well in this comparison.
PS4 is also locked at 30fps, PC isn't
It's because the screenshots don't have the proper brightness/gamma settings.
PS4 = Very High Settings. Ultra = Better then PS4.
Actually playing game = pretty much the same for 80% of PC gamers, its not day and night! Waiting month after month for PC = not worth it tbh, I don't own a PC for GTA, its a console game that's even fully enjoyable on ps3. Mods coming = that's when shit gets interesting as PC takes GTA to the next level and truly pushes its 4k support. My comment = lotsa disagrees!
GTA started on PC too same time as PS1 so not sure why it's just a console game now? So yes you did get a disagree from me :D
PS4 version looks miles better than PC Normal - PC Normal settings http://i0.wp.com/gearnuke.c... - PS4 version http://i2.wp.com/gearnuke.c... And lets face it most people on PC will play at normal settings. Me i will play it at Very high settings. R9 290 owner.
Don't play at normal settings unless it gives you a better framerate
Now that its been released, do you PC elitists still think it was worth the wait? Personally Gtav is old news, ive moved on to better funner things.
I doubt many "waited", what PC gamer doesn't already have a ps3/ps4/360/xb1 to play this on? many are double dipping for the definitive edition, just like many that get it on ps4/xb1 already played it on ps3/360
Waiting? Oh dear how clueless. PC gamers have the biggest backlog of games. We don't have to wait.
Pc GAMERS probably have quite a backlog of games, so I doubt the wait was too painful. The New gen consoles keep pumping out Remasters and such, so why is waiting for 1080p/60fps such a bad thing?
Don't remind me of the backlog, I must admit as owning consoles and PC's I would say it's more of a back forest now though :(
Shame you didn't move on to funnier comments though, :D Already played GTA 5 on PS3 and then ordered the PC version back in 2013 too. It's a great game I don't mind buying twice, not many of those these days (I did get Last of Us remastered though after playing it on PS3).
PC gamers have this thing called backwards compatibility. We get 1080p or better and 60fps the first time. No need for remasters here. Plus many of us that game on PC also own consoles. I know minds blown.
Looks the same.
