GTA 5 System Requirements

With the next gen consoles has brought a huge serge in pc gaming. people are beginning to look to buying a gaming PC rather than a console where they before otherwise may not have. so the big question is… Can I Run It? There is off the bat, a hefty HDD space requirement of 65gb and the overhaul in graphics from the ps3/ xbox 360 versions is massive. however, that doesn’t mean if you’re looking at this and thinking ‘damn im never going to be able to afford this’ that you won’t be able to play. if theres one thing to be said about PC gaming its that bargains are always around the corner, and contrary to popular belief, a mid range pc capable of running most games is not infact that expensive. if you think about the cost of the consoles, which is around £300/ $450 for a couple hundred more than that you can get a very comfortable gaming pc. the main benefit for this is obviously the quality of graphics, but also the PC platform has giveaways and sales which will quickly lead you to making your money back.

if you’re curious about whether your PC can run the game feel free to ask around in the forums, im sure someone will be happy to help you out.

happy gaming :)
and murdering…
and speeding…
and causing general havoc in los santos!

      i think you can maybe run it on minimum settings with lags. it depends also on your CPU and graphic card. if they are good you can maybe run it. but you should stop all backround and other activities on your pc, anti-virus programm etc. for better performance. upgrade your ram. it’s the easiest and cheapest upgrade method. 2x2gb ram can cost you around 20 bucks.

      Sure, but remember that RAM is not the only thing that you need in large amounts to play this game. You need to have a fast graphics card and a very decent Processor. GTA 5 will probably not play well on laptops unless they are built for gaming. As long as you have a desktop with an i3 or above with a non built in graphics card you ought to be fine.

        btw even for the GTA 4 they said 512 graphics card enough but when i put everything on maximum it says that 1700 mb / 973 so it warns me that its dangerous for my system .. point is, 1 gb video card is not enough either :)
        but on high i cna run it smoothly even with a b950 CPU and thats admirable. i wont even bother purchasing gta 5. seems useless .

          “That is sickening to mad gamers like me.”

          – If you were a mad gamer buddy, you’d DEFINITELY have a PC with much more solid specs than that. Who still uses 2GB DDR2 ram anyway these days? Not to mention lack of discrete graphics? pssh.

      You’re computer has much better specs then my pc. When we think about it, GTA 5 won’t need more performance then GTA 4, because rockstar games learned from the last pc port issues and it will be much better optimized. They also use the same physic engine. Maybe just a little bit more performance.

      well like we said before, this is just speculation, but your cousin can run it too, i guess.
      About the i7 920: i would not buy it. the i5 2500k is fast enough for now. i would wait.

    What will be the predicted FPS on my cousin’s computer? He is pestering me to post in this forum and learn. So I put his question to you – and also ask whether his computer can run it smoothly or not – BTW predict the same for me too – I just want an approximate guess.

    Anyone tell me if AMD Opteron or Intel Core i7 is better? I will buy any one of this – so please give me an accurate info. My cousin’s upgrading too( he definitely needs an upgrade). Oh and BTW, GTA IV and GTA EFLC ran super smooth at 45FPS on my cousin’s system at medium settings. So what will the predicted FPS for him? That’s all I want to know.(keep in mind everyone, the requirements are NOT GONNA BE INSANE. Rockstar will NOT RELEASE A GAME THAT 95% of the PC gamers around the world cannot play)

      Depeds which opteron and which i7.

      In general, AMD is cheaper but Intel is slightly faster.

      Rockstar can release a game wich 60% of the world cant play, or with low specs. they always have the console versions. But look at crysis. in the begin there was like 20% of gamers who could play it smoothly.

      But don’t worry. if you could play EFLC with 45fps, gta5 cant be that much of a problem.
