I am getting a new PC this Monday, what do you think of ATI HD5570 1GB? Is it good, can it run GTA IV on highest with no lag? My full specs will be:
Intel G41 chipset LGA775
Intel Pentium Dual Core E6600 3,06GHz
4GB DDR3 1066MHz D-ch
HDD 500GB SATA 7200 RPM
DVD+/-R-RW 22X SATA
MIDI Tower ATX 400W
ATI HD5570 1GB GDDR PCI-E

EDIT: I got it, and I can actually run IV on highest @ 1024x768 O_O.
I run GTA SA on all highest, anti-aliasing set to 3, 1920x1080, and I get 60FPS average.
A heads up: I've overclocked the CPU to 3.5.

hmmm dunno about the gfxcard but about the rest:

had a similar setup before and gtaiv ran on lowest smooth but if I set it higher it started lagging hard..

it will be like:

ATX, 420Watt
6GB Triple-KIT DDR3 Kingston Valueram PC1066 CL7
ASUS M4N68T V2, AM3, ATX
EVGA GeForce GT 520, 1024MB, PCI-Express //not sure about thisone yet
Samsung EcoGreen F3 1TB,SATA II HD105SI //not sure about thisone yet
AMD Phenom II X6 1075T, AM3 3,0GHz
Corsair Hydro Series H70 (Sockel 775/1156/1366/AM2/AM2+/AM3) Watercooler

Get a Nvidia card with the same/similar specs and it will work alot better with GTA IV.

Almost the exact same specs as I have.

Yes, you can run GTA IV on those specs almost flawlessly with medium settings.

The problem with GTA IV no matter what it's really hard to have no lag. I am running on a ATI HD 5570 myself. I normally don't experience much lag on normal settings but sometimes on high it can be quite annoying.

Also your CPU will likely have to make it low settings.

Turn shadows off and you'll probably have no lags, shadows eats up your CPU and maybe 10-20 FPS depending on your CPU.
