Will This PC Run IV?
Hey guys, I've bought this PC off Ebay, but I don't think the graphics card is good enough, I mean I'm happy to play on low specs, but If the card isn't even good enough to play the game, then I'm gonna be getting a better one. Perhaps a 7900.

So, please tell me if these specs are good enough, I'm updating the PC from 2GB Ram to 3GB
Barely. The processor isn't great, and the video card is extremely low-end. Expect to run it at lowest setting at 640x480 resolution, if at all.
That CPU series is actually decent with GTA IV with the patches, I run the game at 1280x1024 and get around 20-25fps and that's with a lower model speed (4200+) but you WILL need to upgrade the graphics card, aim for a later series card, if you can get a 9800GT card, which are pretty cheap now, you'll be able to run the game around 30fps fine.
Actually, if you look at the link below, the creator of the video has the same card as me, and the game seems to run fine. He downloaded this thing that means you can go below 640x580 or whatever it is, if i download that, i should be fine.
Do you really want to play this game at such a low resolution and detail though? I would reccommend picking up a better card, at least a late 8 Series even not just for this but for other games too.
