  • Hard Drive: 18GB free hard disk space
  • Video Card: 512MB Direct3D 10 compatible video card or Direct3D 9 card compatible with Shader

    Dual core processor? Good god did they just do a straight port from the PS3 or something? 18gb of space? I’m hoping thats for all the high resolution textures.

    You’ve not been able to buy a single core processor for a couple of years, anyone who is going to be playing GTA on PC is easily going to have an X2 or a Pentium-D.

    The specs are pretty modest really (I’m assuming the Shader bit is truncated and it wants SM3), 18 gig sounds a lot until you realise that a 1TB drive is less than 80 quid.

    the 512meg graphic card is a pretty steep requirement.
