Question by niiio: Is the Gateway FX desktop okay for Grand Theft Auto IV?
Gateway FX4710 Desktop
Specs: Video: NVIDIA 9800 Geforce
Processor: Intel Core 2 Q9300 Quad-core

Can this computer hold Grand Theft Auto IV at all high quality? If it can, what can I do to take off the graphic restrictions? Thanks.

Yes, it will play GTA4 just fine. It actually beats (slightly) the “recommended” system requirements:

Publishers Recommended System Requirements:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Display Card!: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 512MB /
Memory: 2048MB
Free Disk Space: 16GB
Operating System: Windows Vista SP1 / Windows XP SP3

I think you’ll be able to run it “full featured” – the only weak spot might be your display card. It might run a tad faster with a Geforce GTX280 1GB or better card. The 9800 series is getting a little old.

Good luck,
Donk
