  1. I see you do Club100 too. Did you ever do The Daytona D-MAX Champs too?

  2. The 9800GT is not mid-range. It's better than the 8600GT, which is the reccomended requirement and will run the game fine at medium settings. The 9800GT is about equivalent to my graphics card, an ATi 3850, which runs the game absolutely fine. The fact that he has 1gb of video memory is an added bonus.
  3. That's really nothing to be proud of right there. Okay, that might be slightly hypocritical coming from someone on a pirated version of Windows (did they really expect me to buy Vista?) but I have never pirated a game in my life. The gaming industry is on its knees at the moment, mainly because of people like you. Look at all of EA's games. It's thanks to pirates like you that we, paying customers, have to put up with crap like securom limiting the amount of times we can install the games on our PCs. What you are doing is you are essentially stealing from companies who are already suffering because of the current economic crisis (I'd hardly say that microsoft is suffering, so you can pirate windows as many times as you like for all I care). Seriously, delete every game on your PC and go out and buy them for the sake of the gaming industry and all of us PC gamers who are being treated like criminals by companies like Securom.
  4. ok, thanks, my GTA IV dont run too good, and i dont understand why: Intel Xeon quad 2.8 GHz 6 GB RAM 1GB Geforce 9800GT Your video card is not adequate. its a shame isn't it? I dont know much about Nvidia but the 9800 only has 100 stream processors. That is not good from my understanding. But beats my hd 3450 with only 32 stream processors. You probablyu could do well playing on 800 x 600 monitor resolution with everything on medium high settings. But if you want higher resolution your probably going to have to buy something with more near 300 stream processors. For me I'm looking at getting a HD 3870 or if it goes well a HD 4870. As I dont know much of Nvidia, if you a fan of using of those cards so I can't recommend anything from that. Actually, I think you'll find that his graphics card is absolutely fine! It probably has more to do with the fact that he's running a processor not designed for gaming, however I don't know much more than that about the Xeon line of processors, so I can't say for sure.
  5. This bug happens when you use a No-CD crack. I know, because I tried one and it happened to me (yes, I own the game, I just don't like using the CD). Either use the original CD or buy the game like everyone else does.
  6. He's right. A Pentium Duo is quite different to a Core 2 Duo. And there's no such thing as a 'downgrader patch' which will allow you to play GTA IV with a 128MB graphics card. If the game ran with 128MB of video memory, then Rockstar would have allowed you to use a 128MB graphics card. It's as simple as that.
  7. Yep, that will easily run GTA IV Regarding comments on SLI, I've also heard that even with games that do support SLI, the improvement over a single card is not huge. Added to the limited support, if you've got the cash to buy 2 GTX260s, you might as well just get a single GTX295.
  8. TM is quite right. Your operating system and your hardware are completely independent. In case you need confirmation (before you post another topic asking the same question again) you will not be able to run GTA IV on that PC. EVER. No matter what you do to the game files.
  9. It's supposed to remind you of this.
  10. Just because you recently purchased it doesn't mean it's a good computer. You certainly won't run GTA IV on a 1.86GHZ Intel Pentium Dual Core. Not very well, anyway. We assume that you don't know much about computers when you post the same thing in 3 different topics despite being told that your PC is nowhere near powerful enough to run GTA IV, due to the graphics card AND processor.
  11. Before you buy more RAM, make sure your motherboard supports it and that you have enough slots. You will also need a new processor. Hell, why not just buy a new PC?
  12. I find it incredible that you didn't read the comments made in the last 2 threads. You WILL NOT be able to play GTA IV on that PC. EVER. Intel graphics are shit. Intel Pentium processors are shit.
  13. If a 4870X2 is stretching your budget, why not go for a single 4870? Do not get the 9600 or 4670. They are nowhere near as good as a GTX280 or 4870.
  14. I'm going to say most settings on high.
  15. Was it really necessary for you to post in both topics? Why do people buy games like GTA IV without reading the system requirements?
