First of all, I would like to introduce my readers to a new category on technodorm called “Games”. I will be posting about new releases and gaming related posts there. My first post is regarding GTA 4 System Requirements.  It was released on April 29th, 2008 for both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 while it was released on 2nd December for PC. GTA 4 is the ninth title in the grand theft auto series.

    It should run with lower settings although your graphic card is weak so you should upgrade it to enjoy newer game like these.

    can i play gta 4 with this specs?
    2.67 ghz 1.00 GB of RAM
    nvidia geforce fx
    reply here pls

  39. Fahad says:

    Your system is on the borderline for minimum specs. It may play but you will need to put all settings to lowest. If you upgrade your graphics card then you should be able to play at med-high settings.

    Yes, it will be a problem. You need Windows XP SP3 to play GTA 4.

    I cant say anything till you mention what video card you have. Even integrated graphic cards support upto 384mb but they still wont be able to play the game. Mention your video card and I can tell you if it will work or not.

    What video card? Make and model number are required to tell you if you can play this game although I doubt it since its only 128mb. You need at least a good video card with 256mb.

    Your processor is a bit slow but I dont think there should be much of a problem. Try running the game and you will find out.

    You haven’t told me anything. What processor? Is it Core 2 duo? What video card of nVidia do you have? How much memory does the video card have?

  40. coolkashif says:

    my laptop config: does not run smooth even with min. graphics…

    2.2 GHz Core 2 Duo,
    256 8600 GT nvidia
    2 GB ram
    windows 7

    if i upgrade ram to 4GB will it work?

  41. luka says:

    will it run smooothly on
    Intel core 2 quad 2.0 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Disk, Nvidia 9700GT 512 MB 1066 MHz, vista ultimate 64 bit ???

    Please reply fast!

  42. Fahad says:

    Windows 7 is not supported by this release. Try running the game on windows xp or vista although you will only be able to play on minimum settings due to your video card. You should be able to play on minimum settings with low resolution very smoothly.

    Yup, it should run quite nicely! :)

  43. Vapure says:

    i just wanted to say that i hav a 4gb of ram, enough space in the 320gb hardrive and 512MB NVIDIA 8800, AMD Phenom X3 and my pc is windows vista buisness am i able to play gta iv.

    I need a quick reply

  44. Fahad says:

    You should be able to play the game just fine! :P

  45. Jim says:

    I have a Q6600 core 2 quad 2,7 Ghz
    9700 GT 1gb memory
    4gb DDR3 memory

    And it STILL DOESN’T RUN on HIGH!!! This fucking game is driving me mad. I want to play high quality.. I play Farcry 2 with very high quality textures and in 1900 x 1440. What the hell?

    Is there a fix/patch/update for the Grand Theft Auto 4?

    Please let me know. I would pay 100 bucks for it.

    You might be able to play on your X3 AMD but it wont run high quality. The videocard should be fine!

  46. Fahad says:

    You have a great top notch PC but you are playing at a very high resolution. You may have been able to play Farcry 2 at that resolution but GTA 4 is a more demanding game. You either need to lower the resolution or get a better graphics card like the ATI 4870 or GTX 280.

  47. KAPIL says:


    i have AMD phenom 9850 quad core 2.5 processor and 2 gb 800 mhz ram corsair xms2 and r4650 ati 1gb graphics card and still it is not working

  48. Fahad says:

    Your graphics card is a bit on the low side although you should still be able to play at lower resolutions. :)

  49. Vishnu says:

    Ha it wont work in mine :) mine is amd turion!

  50. joey says:

    Hi will the game work if you dont got a core 2? i got a sony vaio its got a pentium 4 cpu 3.20 ghz 2 gigs ram and nividia 9600 brand new card. I wanna play this game but not sure it will even run at all. even at lowest settings do i have a chance of it installing and getting some gameplay?

  51. Nemanja says:

    Hey guys would i be able to play gta at least on low graphs with this settings :

    Nvidia 8400 gs 512mb ( SPECIAL EDITION!!! )
    Amd Athlon x2 4000+ 2.11ghz
    1gb of ram
    and enough space ( 250 gb )

    plz answer!

    • Fahad says:

      Your graphics card is not good. You need to upgrade it. Also, you should at least have 2gb of ram.

      I doubt you would be able to play this game as it is now.

  52. Sabby Jay says:

    Hey i’ve got core 2 duo processor 2.6ghz………2GB of RAM, 512 mb Graphics card nVidia 8400gs, XP SP2…….would i b a ble to play it on ma pc??……i wanna buy d original……so pls temme fast…kk

    • Fahad says:

      I doubt you will be able to play it on your computer. Your graphics card is not powerful enough. I wouldn’t buy the game if I were you.

      Upgrade your graphics card and then you should be able to play the game smoothly! :)

  53. sorabh says:

    hey i have 2gb ram
    512mb graphic card-8400 gs
    2.53ghz core 2 duo processor and xp sp-2!!!will gta 4 work in my computer ????should i but hte orignal on???

  54. Mr ISH says:

    Wow, this game is heaps hardware intense! Tho i can totally see why. GTA4 ROXXX!!!!!

    I am running:
    Q6600 Core2 Quad 2.4Ghz
    4Gb RAM
    Asus ATI Radeon EAH3450 512Mb
    Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

    The game runs at low to medium graphix, at 1024×768. Still a tad chunky.

    Guess a $45 graphix card just doesn’t cut the mustard. :p
    Will have to work on that. If anyone is feeling generous…? ;)

  55. Jack says:

    i have………

    Intel Duel Core 2.0 Ghz
    2 Gb RAM
    windows xp sp2

    it will works ???????

  56. me says:

    59 people said “will it work”



  57. Mr ISH says:

    oh but it is far easier to get someone else to read the requirements and do the math required as to whether their systems will hack the game.

    userz huh? *rolls eyez* lolz


    tho there is no point me saying this, as it IS written at the top of the page, and some other user person will ask the same question yet again in a few posts xD

    i think we should restrict computers to people who understand them :p LOL


    heheh, could just write a script that posts the required system specs every day, and tells everyone: “if yuu dont kno if yuur system will handle the game, tha answer is prolly NO!”

    or summink.

    the end.

  70. jamie says:

    i have a intel quad core at 2.8GHz , comp only cost 350 , 500 gb and a 1000GB slave drive , 6GB ram , upgraded graphics card for £50 , got a decent computer for £400, got a HD 1080p screen and blu ray disk drive for £50 aswell by just asking my family Lol,

    i also swapped one of the unused processers from the ps3 with a 2.6GHz , so i have a 3.3GHz just like that it is incredible easy , and incredibly cheap for some people as well.

    I have a good experience with computers so i would not try to do the ps3 processor trick on you own , i tried it because i had two ps3′s and i was lucky enough i got the 8th processor in the ps3 which isnt used and i didnt get the 1st – 3rd which are the ones that run the games

    Oh yea if you have vista , vista ultimate package or premiem version works better with this game.

    hope i helped a bit or none lol

  86. Fahad says:

    @rocky sixer
    There is something really messed up with your system if you aren’t able to play your games probably.
    1) Check that you have drivers installed properly for your graphics card and that your sli configuration is correct. This will most likely be your problem. :)

    Also, GTA 4 requires either Windows XP SP3 or Vista SP1, which you dont have, so you cannot play that game until you upgrade your OS.

    You should be able to play Crysis at high resolutions with high detail. Check your drivers.

    Btw, the i7 is a quad core cpu, not 8 cores. Although it has the ability of Hyper Threading which makes it act like 8 cores but it is not in the true sense, an 8 core cpu.

    it runs fine on 800×600 (low)resolution but not on 1366×768
    why ???

  90. kunal says:

    dual core – 1.6 gigahertz
    nvidia – 512mb 8400 gs
    ram – 3 gb ddr2
    os – xp sp3

    will work or not please tell

    • Fahad says:

      I doubt it will work on your computer. Even though your graphics card has 512mb memory, it is a very low performing card and isn’t a true graphics card. You should really upgrade your graphics card if you want to play GTA 4.

  95. jameson says:

    Core2 duo 2.00GHz

    can run this game?

  96. Kevin says:

    Tnx…. My PC actually reached those requirements since my PC contains high specs…. Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad (2.4GHz),
    1Gb nvidia GeForce GTX 285, 4Gb Pc667 RAM, 320 Gb SATA II Hard Disk Drive, OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32-Bit). Tnx for posting the system requirements of GTA 4….. THANKS ALOT….:-)

  97. andy says:

    i got amd phenom quad core 2.5ghz cpu 1gb ati somethin graphics card 8gb of ram over a tb of hdd and the game runs like shit gunna get a xbox360 4 it instead waste of money grrrr

  98. napster says:

    If your system config is low

    !!!do not forget to install Win Xp SP3

    there is good chance that the game will run…

    And install SP3 in safe mode


  99. Justin says:

    yo, i have gta 4 and it lags and runs pretty slow. My specs for my pc are as follows

    amd triple core 3.01ghz
    6gb ram
    650 gb hard drive
    nvidia 9600gt (just one, no sli yet, and i do plan to upgrade)
    windows vista ultimate 64-bit

    runs fast on medium, but i know i need a new graphics card. Thats just to get an idea. I thought my machine was untouchable until i bought this game…good luck all. If anyone gets it runnin smooth, lemme know what graphics card your working with. Im in the market for one now

  100. Justin says:

    i doubt you need a quad core to run the game..but man…this game kinda…sucks on pc just cause of how much you have to spend to get it to look even close to xbox36 or ps3.

  101. jajahanaui says:

  102. Nobodynoddy says:

    I have a Core 2 Quad 2.33ghz CPU with 4gb ram and a 9800GT-OC grafix card, with Vista Ultimate, I play the game at full graphixs without any problems. You guys should upgrade.
    P.S. I DID save for 9 months to buy this comp…

    Will this work on duel core

    …. i couldn’t even start to install.. it’s saying that my
    system is incompatible with %P… please follow the link for more information “microsoft”…

    what do i need to do?

  106. Justin says:

    OMG…whats the deal with the i7′s not being able to run the game…You’d think that’d be the best way to go. From what i’ve gathered, its still a quad core with either a really really good graphics card, or a quad core with 2 good graphics cards. My triple core is doin aight i guess, medium settings. some mod can change the frame rate to go faster but it cuts the draw distance

  107. horsepowerfreak says:

    look! why dont you all just get an alienware, falcon(12gb ram) or velocity… prices range from usd$6000.00-usd$8000.00
    go to and check these out the reviews and stop the complaining.just consider these powerhouses as an investment.

  108. WILL IT WORK??!?? says:

    my system specs-
    intel core 2 duo
    512 mb card-nvida-7900 GT
    1 gb RAm
    120 gb hard disk space..
    WILL IT WORK?????????????????????????????/plz answers

  109. Justin says:

    yo honestly yall, i dont see a whole lot of hope for any dual core. Thats just my opinion. My triple core is at 3.1ghz, and it runs on pretty low settings. I got 6gb of memory, my graphics card is a 6400gt. I’d say to buddy right above me, you may need some more ram, and some ghz on that processor. Alienware computers cost so much its rediculous. I’ve always wanted to get one tho. I checked out a used one on craigs for $600 that came with a freakin p4…PASS! If your not able to afford the alienware $$$ bucket, just upgrade your sht. Its gonna have to happen sooner or later. AMD if your ballin on a budget. Intel if your good, and alien stuff if your BAAALLIN!

  110. jubzzz says:

    hello people will gta 4 work on 8200 nvidia geforce, 3gb ram and 2.1 amd phenom *3 processor!!!!!!!!!!! please reply quickly……. thank for your attention!!!!!!!1

  111. Dennis_DDog says:

    I’ve got a AMD Phenom X4 9500 2.2 GhZ Quad, Sapphire Radeon 512 MB video, 4 Gig DDR2 RAM and Realtek sound card with Vista Home Premium. Bought PC for 700 Euros and it works, sort of. I get @ 1280×1024 32-bit MAX everything about 10 frames, but when I lower the settings, I don’t see any boost in performance:(

  112. storm says:

    dude………WTF!!………….vice city requireed only 128 mb ram…………..that waz awesome…..coz anyone could play it………..but now with these specs i dont think anyone will!!!

  113. Dennis_DDog says:

    PS: with MAX everything I mean everything @ full graphics

  114. Justin says:

    I honestly think Im just gonna leave GTAIV for the systems…cause you need a super machine to play it it seems like, and i dont have the chips for no alienware or any interest in buying another computer…FCK that. My sht cost too much for me to consider replacing it…plus it looks cool. Im stickin to mods for san andreas on the pc. I’ll just buy the ps3 version of gta4 b/c nobody even plays online for pc anyways…prolly cause nobody’s computer can play the fcking game…YO DENNIS_DDOG, did your game have bad lag? I was thinking bout getting a quad core processor today.

  115. Justin says:

    JUBUZZ, it’ll work, prolly medium settings, my processor is the same as yours, i just overclocked it. I’d look into upgrading the graphics card maybe tho. mine is a 9400gt and it does the job…but its no over achiever

    Well, I’d install it in my PC

    Pen 4 – 3.0G
    256 8500GT DDR2
    2x 1G DDR2 RAM

    It can enter, can show the game, but quite laggy….so I’ll assume if upgrade card to 8600GT DDR3, the game should able to play @ minumum setting.

  169. Ax says:

    I have everything required but it doesnt work properly the ground becomes transparent and the items like lamps on the street are invisible any1 know why?

  170. Sama18 says:

    Is this gonna work with ati readon 200m graphics, 2gb ram 1.73 ghz core duo processor with vista ultimate???

  171. metal09 says:

    eh does any1 know which laptops feature any of the recommended graphic cards(512mb ATI 3780 or 512mb NVIDIA 8600) that are mentioned above?

  172. paul says:

    Gowtham – I would not risk it. Sorry!
    Bram Van – you are stupid! No one cares what you have, this is for help and useful comments only. My PC would honestly destroy yours, yours is smaller than mine – feeling better? (sorry guys, I hate show offs, but lets put them in place huh?)

    Ax – Most likely your graphics driver needs updating or it’s not good enough, try lowering all graphic properties.

    Sama18 – I doubt it. Sadly you will need an upgrade.

    metla09 – the new dell 15′s come with the 4750 ATI 256mb which is better than the 8600 nvidia. 3780 card is better but you are looking at a pricey machine. In the UK the 4750 ATI laptop is priced £500.00 which is a good price considering what you get. I would reccomend you head with a desktop though, you will get way more for your money! The game will run much better.

    Kaizer – RICH?? you are being silly. People if you have a new PC but no decent graphics card, then buy one! A card around £50.00-£110.00 will run this game nicely. Think of it this way though, if you own a console, the price of the games on those are silly, the controllers are over priced. Saving a couple of hundred pounds to upgrade and use your old stuff does no harm, and it’s not just for one game but in general your PC will be running better. It’s cheaper than a mobile contract for a year, and all you get there is phone calls. Plus, if you enjoy gaming then you will do it! don’t buy so much alcohol! I would say rich is spending over £1000.00 without feeling it. I would say middle class could afford £300.00 easily. If you are on benefits then save a little, but that time the equipment will be even cheaper!!

  173. metal09 says:

    @ paul- thx for ur suggestion… but i m not sure if gta4 will run on ati 4750 as claimed on this link.

    actually i m pretty confused with the list in the link. according to that list only a few top expensive graphic cards can render the game in decent graphix. i just wanna play the game at least in 1024*768 wid medium settings. do u have any suggestions for a laptop? please reply thx in advance
