im sorry i didn't mean to argue your knowledge, i was just throwing that out there, sometimes if your close to the specs you can get the game to run, especially for titles that have a strong mod community , they will usually make a mod for weaker systems so more people can enjoy the game.

Yeah, i agree. Probably if the specs are just a little under, you can run it. But still dont think that you (the OP) will be able to play it anything close to smoothly.

The results:

on minimum it says pass for my cpu pass but when i click recommended it says upgrade suggested,

Everything else on minimum passes except for my operating system but i was wondering i might be able to run the game in capability mode or something along them lines.

This is the recommended tab:

Video Card
Recommended: 512MB NVIDIA 8600+ / 512MB ATI 3870+
You Have: ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (0x9612)
Upgrade Suggested: Unfortunately, your Video Card does not meet this requirement. Click here to see some recommendations.
Features: Recommended attributes of your Video Card
Required You Have
Video RAM 512 MB 1.4 GB
3D Yes Yes
Hardware T&L Yes Yes
Pixel Shader version 3.0 4.0
Vertex Shader version 3.0 4.0

You have the hd3200. I had that in a computer I just purchased. It had troubles playing fallout and resident evil 5. Although GTA isnt as graphically demanding, the magnitude of the game would make it pretty painful to play id imagine.
The 3200 is integrated is it not?

Laptops were never built for gaming.
Try get a cheap but decent desktop, then buying a gaming card. We will help you out from there.
Alternatively, buy a gaming PC

Building is always cheaper, and you can over-rule useless parts like quad-cores and huge hard-drives. And buy a gaming card if you can afford it, if not too bad. GTA IV still wont play smoothly.
And all ati/nvidia cards are non/intergrated i think?

actually some of the budget desktops are getting cheaper to buy than to build , obviously this isn't always the case and if you have some of the parts laying around you could build much cheaper but this isn't the case for some people. a lot of people are also still uncomfortable building their own pc's. if your on a tight budget i recommend looking at your options, and deciding for yourself which way is more beneficial.

GTA 4 is a poorly optimized game for pc, which it struggles on some of the best computers out there.

agreed they most likely can't get GTA 4 to run, it's a very poorly done console port. they just may want to keep what i said in mind for other titles they have questions about in the future.
