    1How much graphics memory do I need for GTA 4?

    Your GPU only needs either a GeForce 7900 or a Radeon X1900 with 256 MB of VRAM for GPU. Your CPU should be at least an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 or an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+. GTA4 only needs 1.5 GB of RAM to run, so much of a modern PC should meet or exceed these requirements.

    2Can GTA 4 run without GPU?

    It doesn’t matter whether you have or not an external Graphics Card. If your graphics card is non-dedicated like Intel HD 3000, which is mainly inbuilt inside notebooks and notebooks, you will play GTA IV almost fine.

    If you have a non-dedicated integrated Graphics card, you can use your RAM (Physical memory) to allocate enough memory to your Video memory for at least 500 MB. You will only need to type Commandline text “availablevidmem” in Commandline. If you already have 64 MB, you can double it by adding “2.0” followed by the above command.

    Similarly, you can triple it by adding “3.0”.

    * However, if you’re looking for 256 MB, you won’t be able to play GTA IV well without these settings. It will lag, froze or crash.

    3Is 2GB enough GTA 4 VRAM?

    GTA 4 is a well-optimized game, so you will be able to play it on 2GB RAM and not need an external graphics card, but I suspect you will need some sort of integrated graphics (may be 300MB) would be useful.

    4What GPU can run GTA 4?

    An ATI Radeon X1900 is the minimum graphics card you need to run Grand Theft Auto 4 on. However, the recommended GPU for NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT or higher is a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT or higher. The GTA 4 PC requirements call for a minimum CPU equivalent to an AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-5-Whereas, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU or higher is recommended.

    5Can GTA 4 run on 512mb graphics card?

    No it will not run. GTA IV is one of the most unoptimized PC games, and it runs terribly on both powerful laptops and PC’s. Your laptop isn’t powerful, and it will not work. Sorry.

    6Can I run GTA 4 on 128mb video card?

    You can’t.

    7Can GTA 4 run smoothly on low end PC?

    With the help of some mods that make the graphics lower, a 2.6GHZ, 1 GB ram, and 1 GB graphic card is STILL able to run the game.

    8Is 4GB enough for GTA V GPU?

    One of the game’s minimum requirements is a 4GB of RAM. To run the game smoothly, you’ll still need a 2GB graphics card as well as an i3 processor. The 4GB RAM laptop or PC will run the game, but it will be at the lowest quality and the user experience will not be that good.
