Can your PC handle GTA IV?

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 03:40 PM MDT | By Neil
YouGamers, the gaming resource site of benchmarking behemoth Futuremark Corporation has launched a web application which allows gamers to check whether their PC is capable of running GTA IV.

It's no secret that the game will require a very mighty PC to run, so it would be advisable to check this out before you go running to the store later this week.

Of course, tools like this are not always accurate but it can give you a ballpark estimation of how your PC will perform. Test your system by clicking here.

I dare not do it...:-(
Well, if I can't run it, I'll buy it anyway, since I'm upgrading my GPU soon.
