I haven't had any problems playing PC games myself. It's just stuff I've seen on the net. Some people talking about how their game would not start because it detected daemon tools or something like that.

Copy protection - well... StarForce for one. People hate that one. Luckily, none of the games I've bought use that particular protection so I don't know how bad it really is... again, just what i've seen on the net.

On another note... what is the fingerless glove thing I read about?

I'd love to buy this for PC, but i dunno if my PC would run it, you'd need a proper good PC to run GTA IV on so that it runs smoothly and so there's no crashes or glitches.

What are the minimum requirements, that's what I'm wondering. How good does your PC have to be to run this?

I can almost garantee the PC version of GTA4 will have glitches, GTASA had many of them when it was ported from Console to PC. (mostly map glitches tho, and those can be fun sometimes)

just hope thier isn't any issues that will interfere with the storyline.

Hard Drive space is a minor factor in most peoples case.

When I say minor case, I mean in comparison with CPU speed, Graphics card, Ram etc.
I can't imagine my current set up (I can run bioshock at a stable FPS on medium) will be able to run IV

Bioshock I can run at 1280x960, Max Detail, 4X AA just fine. I tried 1600x1200 but lack of video memory was the problem.

with GTA4 however I hope I can at least do 1024x768, Highest Detail with 4X FSAA or better
