  1. My specs are:

    8GB System RAM
    I play at 1920x1080 resolution!
    AMD Quad-Core 2.4GHz rated at:
    ATi Radeon HD 6550D (D is for Desktop graphics, f*ck laptops.)
    1TB HDD
    Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit.

    I thought of downgrading to Windows XP. Should I? (Pirated) and please realize in GTA IV, under "Display" my available video ram is 489... wow. WTF, I haz 4GB's that is must not be interpreting. I so hope GTA 5 Isn't this much of a disaster!

    Um, anything else I should add? According to "" I'm BEAT recommended, but I only get 1-10 FPS. Please help me? :(

    Sorry to break it to you, but, no you don't (have a powerful rig) least by GTA standards.

    Firstly; All the GTA series are CPU clockspeed sensitive. 3.4GHz I would consider "entry level" for the most part, and anything above this would definitely be better.

    Secondly; Your graphics card....basically NO, unless you're turning down the graphics options (esp. draw distance) way, way down and using a low screen resolution. Personally I'd place as much faith in "canyourunit" as I would in used car salesmen. You can try YouGamers but this is also going to be very optimistic

    As divide said, turn down your settings/resolution.
    That isnt a "powerful" rig,
    P.S 1920x1080 isnt necessary for that specs.

    On top of what dbz said, also, don't mention anything about pirating OSes again or you can kindly GTFO.
