    No, but then again that would depend on what resolution you're running on, hopefully you mean like a 17inch monitor or something.

    No, you definately cannot run at max resolution with that card. You need something like a 4770 or a gtx250. That cpu isnt that fast either, with a small amount of L2cache on it as well.

    a 4850 can outperform a gts 250. for about the same price

    Don't play GTA 4 on pc. Go buy a console. GTA 4 on pc is just a headache.

    Its really not as bad as it was since they patched it up.

    Still need a "high end" setup though... But when its running next to my brothers xbox 360 version there is a huge gulf between them. In favor of the pc by far.
