    still no official release date, no reviews for pc version, and no reviews for next gen console versions. Still though you need to at least beat the recommended specs of GTA IV if you're thinking about pre-ordering.

    Your GPU simply isn't going to cut it. Judging how the last GTA PC release went, you need to think about a R9-270X or GTX 660 Ti at the least. And I'd go up to 8GB of ram, 4GB might not be enough.

    Don't worry I am thinking of upgrading but I still need to know the specs!
    Their specs will determine if I really need a super high-end gpu :p

    Don't forget to build a nuclear power plant in your backyard too. After all, it's GTA 5.

    660Ti atleast, 8gB RAM, etc... :rolleyes:



    Wait for the specs and buy accordingly. Save the money till then because you need a new PSU too. Total 250$ minimum (everything new and after selling your current hardware).

    Not that well versed in AMD processors and their power, so cant comment.

    Edit: Just checked. Processor wise, you have ZERO problems. :p

    Well... seeing as the PS4 features (almost) a 270X (7850/7870 performance) and 8GB of RAM; yogurts idea was so bad, really.


    To be honest, I'm expecting this release of GTA to be needing a 280X or GTX770 to run at a respectable frame rate while being cranked up. I also foresee some issues with 2GB of VRAM @ 1080, if this is the case.



    I for one am looking forward to the (master race edition) PC release of GTA V... certainly seeing as though I havent given up to the pressure of console ownership at this point lol :toast:



    Edit: And yes, he will need a new PSU if he wants a new card.

    I'd just assume you are going to need a beast computer, knowing the gta franchise.

    Seems the game might be delayed -
    They demo'ed the retail partners but not the press, so it's rumored it might be delayed :mad:

    The video is pretty pointless.

    A, its a rumor as ever.
    B, it gives out no useful information

    I also found this YouTube comment to be pretty much on the money:



    However, Rockstar has an habit of releasing things a little bit later than expected. I mean, would it really surprise anyone if this came out closer to Christmas than what we were hoping it would?

    After all, they only say "Coming Fall 2014" which can mean any time until late October, which is probably when it will be seeing as all the other 3D versions since GTA 3 have had a late October releases.


    Personally, I'd sooner them take a little bit longer.... after the 'issues' with GTA 4 and it being a bugfest from day one, maybe the extra time will help them iron out the major problems and we wont all have to be active BETA testers again.

    *MOD NOTE: STOP DOUBLE/TRIPLE POSTING

    I agree, I can't watch the video since I'm at work and don't have access to youtube, I just saw it in a news article.

    There is also another video stating and could come 2014 there are some evidence that link to it
    Check the news again I was surprised myself lol xD

    Friendly reminder. There's an edit button in the bottom left hand of your post. If you're going to add more to a post, use that. If you read the forum rules, multi-posting is rather frowned upon.

    As many avatars and signatures read, post count doesn't equate to e-peen.




    On topic, who cares? Every GTA release is a bug festival, preceded by moaning that Rockstar is taking so long to port the game to PC. Why not just go out and buy two discounted games that cover what GTA does in the mean time? Saints Row 4 will cover the open world and vehicles, while Dark Souls can cover your frustrating difficulty spikes and linearly non-linear missions. Between both of those games, you've got enough hours to kill all the time before GTA V is released, fewer bugs, and two reasonably compelling stories.
     
    Mindweaver and bubbleawsome say thanks.

    On a note of who cares; obviously people who're posting in here and I'd hazzard a guess at a whole lot more besides that, too.

    If you dont care, then maybe dont post in the thread at all? ;)


    But.......Saints Row 4 is pretty bad. This is coming from a guy whose appreciated all the others, most of all SR 3.


    It really wont be a patch on GTA... nothing ever was, in all honesty, so no point comparing apples to oranges, now, is there? :toast:

    What concerns me is the mentality of building a computer around a single application - particularly one that while demanding, will not be anywhere near the most taxing game available.

    The story to Saints Row 4 isn't as good, and the missions start out really slow so to speak. Fortunately it picks up to the point where it's worth playing, but ya it's not SR3 good.

    Meh, I played and beat GTA:IV on an Ahtlon X2 and an HD4670, and it looked better than the PS3 version. And that was before they released the patches that improved performance...

    So I'm pretty confident that any mid-range PC will be able to play GTA:V.

    Heck, I'll probably end up playing it with integrated graphics just like I did with Watch Dogs...

    why does that feel like you're going to have to reduce the pretties so badly it'll make SA look like cutting edge?

    Watch Dogs still looked decent enough.

    Can you record gameplay of you playing on your integrated graphics? I'm interested in seeing what how the game looks with those settings.

    cant tell if newtkie is trolling or not...

    gta 5 should look better than gta 4 with similar requirements. because for one GTA 4 was a direct port from xbox and in this case they actually worked harder to build gta 5 for pc from scratch.
