AMD Phenom II X6
Radeon HD 5970 2GB
6GB Corsair Dominator

Not maxed out - there will still be a few settings you will have to lower, but you should be able to find a decent compromise between decent IQ and smooth frame rates.

It also depends on your resolution.

1280x1024 res.
what does this game need to run at max? xD
I saw videos on youtube where it runs everything on max, and their config is not so high, fake?

You can add an extra parameter to a GTA IV shortcut that removes the limit, so you can set the max settings regardless of how much VRAM you have. I have max settings on mine without that extra parameter, at 1920x1080 res and I think it uses around 1.1GB VRAM, and my card has just under 1.3GB.

so I could run all max with 1280x1024 res. without any problems?
I will get a Radeon HD 5970 2GB instead of the HD 5870.

GTA 4 probably wouldn't even run at max settings if you had a gtx 480. It wasn't very well written.

What was not very well written?
HD 5970, GTX 480, kinda same thing, for me ATI > Nvidia anyway


Whatever, enough of this topic, this is only speculation...

either way.. it's not anything wrong with the hardware. Just a poorly written graphics engine

at 1280x1024 I would think eve 512Mb vram would be plenty.

1Gb certainly is.

As odd as it sounds, you may do just as well or better performance wise, moving up to higher res monitor.

Most of the modern cards arent really working that much at that low of res.
Really need at least 1680x1050 or more before they really start helping.
