Ahead of its release next week, its worth checking out the minimum and recommended requirements for running Grand Theft Auto V on PC. Follow the link for all the details.
Idk what it is about GTA in general but I just keep going back - I bought GTA IV a few years after it came to PC and was blown away by the mod support and hope that Rockstar not only makes this port on the level of the Max Payne 3 port, but also makes the mod integration a little easier. It prolongs the life of their game and makes some of the best reasons to go back to the game down the road. The specs aren't that terrible either, I can't really bring myself to shell out another $60 right away but if the MP community shows up in GTA Online I may just have to. It just comes at a weird time so close to The Witcher that I can't say I'll definitely grab it just due to knowing The Witcher will certainly take up a majority of my time come May.
Definitely I'm expecting GTA V to be the masterpiece which everyone "must own". Full value for the purchase, that's how I look at it.
Same here, I can't pull myself away from the series. I was playing IV right up until V released on the consoles. GTA V and GTA Online in particular is just so well done, people who don't enjoy it are either not fans of open world games (which I totally understand!) or simply have such a limited imagination/mental capacity, they can't decide/figure out how to have fun. I probably have 10+ detailed stories that unfolded in GTA Online with some buddies and random people online, things I'll never forget, and I'm hoping to clock twice as much time in the PC version - if not more as it expands.
Those recommended specs are pretty low! That's awesome, doesn't take an ultra PC rig to run this game.
ah, i'd wait and see what happens in that regard...if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is... they may call that 'recommended'...but i bet it crawls on a PC with those specs... the weird thing is that they make it appear to be somewhat cpu bound...then recommend almost below mid-range gpu's (those are only marginally faster gpu's to the PS4's gpu)... then factor in that you've got DX11 in the way...and like i said...I'd place a strong bet that the game will require a far more powerful gpu to get anywhere close to 1080/60fps... I'm guessing a good starting point, gpu wise, would be a 7970/280x from AMD, or a 770 from Nvidia...that, of course, would be for 'maxing' out the game with a stable 60fps at 1920x1080...the listed equipment may run it, but probably worse than the new consoles...again, mostly because of still being stuck with DX11... just saying, Rockstar doesn't have that great of a track record with PC releases...they gave some un-intimidating specs for GTAIV, too...and the game wouldn't even load unless you had double that...
Got i7 4771 and MSI 7970 Lightning, gonna easily max out this!
Still haven't played the game. Might pick it up on PC once it's cheaper. I've lost interesst in GTA after Vice City but GTA V looks interessting enough for me to return to the franchise. Those spec requirements are fairly low as well. Seems like Rockstar did a good job porting the game to PC. @author: You might wanna include a line break between Memory and Video Card. At first I read it as "8GB Video Card".
Lol, me too.
I'll get it on a Steam sale in about 2 months for about half price. The recommended specs are still weak for such a good looking game. Looking forward to picking this up.
After 2 months you might see 25% if you're lucky, but not 50%, not on a popular title like GTA.
Well this took long enough. The only question I have is whether going 4K is going to be worth it. Is it worth it for just this one game?
The requirements have been out for a while. This is old news.
We knew that 2 years ago. I've been playin gta4 in 4k before the new gen was announced. Started on a 30hz set then picked up a 60hz 4k tv last year and it's fantastic. I turn some settings back that hardly make a difference visually to pull more horsepower from my Titan.
Dude look at BioShock Infinite in 4k there's your answer
I'm debating on buying it for the third time... is it worth it, also no news on the single player dlc has me on the fence for even reinstalling it on PS4.
Recommended is an 8GB Video Card? :)
Recommended is buying a $5000 gaming rig...
1000 or less.
You have no clue whatsoever about PC gaming. Please stick to consoles where you are out of harm's way :)
Psychotica: recommended system memory was 8GB recommended video cards were the Nvidia 660 or AMD 7870...both in 2GB variants... the 7870 is a higher power/draw and clocked version of the PS4's gpu (which slots in closer to the desktop 7850), so a slightly more powerful console gpu... but, as i mentioned higher up, these parts are going to be strangled by DX11 pretty heavily...I'm pretty sure that the recommended equipment is not going to run the game all that well...it'll take a significantly more powerful gpu to really push GTAV on PC... EDIT: just saw it was answered below haha...
it should be 2 lines Memory: 8GB Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB not "Memory: 8GB Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB"
Oh!, thanks for waking me up..it's been a long day
You can preorder on Greenmangaming for $46.79 in the VIP section if you have an account. It's a Steam code and it's completely legit. They have great deals all the time.
Out of stock...
Jesus - a 9800gt is the minimum graphics card. Isn't that thing like 9 years old?
Yet the CPU demands are relatively high in comparison, telling me this game is CPU load heavy. A great way to utilise that £300 graphics card I have - not.
exactly what i thought... they recommend one of AMD's fastest cpu's...then recommend a gpu that is already dipping below mid range... not really sure what to make of all that...
The system specs are pretty reasonable for min and recommended specs. Should be pretty well optimised I hope they've had long enough after all. Will be preordering the game on Friday for £20 :)
Erm... weren't these specs revealed zonks ago?
very low recommended specs... being it's from Rockstar and it's a PC game I expect poor graphics and poor optimization.
These specs have been out for months already. Just saying.
Ubisoft & watchdogs take note. This is how it's done. the specs for Watchdogs were ridiculous, especially for a game that looks WORSE then GTA V.
Finally a game with respectable requirements. The lack of optimization in games lately has been disgusting.
rest assured...those posted parts are not going to output the game at anything most would find acceptable... we won't see properly optimized PC software until DX11 is dead and buried...
Bring it, i am ready.
Those specs seem TOO nice. I have 16gb memory with a GeForce GTX 780ti and an i7-4770k processor and a simple game like Sleeping Dogs STILL chugs a certain times at 1920x1080p. I'll hold judgement until GTA V PC comes out.
