Can my GPU and CPU run Grand Theft Auto 5

I was wondering if anyone knew if my GPU and CPU can run GTA 5 on at least low settings 1080p.

Here are my specs:
Motherboard: MSI A68HM-E33 v2
GPU: Nvidia GT 9800
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860k (Black Edition)
Ram: Kingston Hyper X 8gb
Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80 plus
OS: Windows 10

  1. I don't know from personal experience but this person on YouTube was able to run GTA 5 at 1360 x 740 resolution with a GT 9800, that appears to have 1 GB of VRAM. He was achieving 20-30 FPS.

    Obviously a future platform upgrade to an i3-6100 + GTX 950 (or 1070) would be a monster upgrade. Regardless, just purchase the game via Steam, and you'll have the option of returning it as long as your total play time doesn't exceed 2 hours.

    Your CPU and power supply are enough to handle a better card than the 9800, even a GT 730 GDDR5 is better than the 9800 and can be found pretty cheap, especially if you can find a good working used one. Or even better, a 750 or 750 Ti, it's a good investment in the system you have.

    a 960 is the best option or waiting for the r9 480
    if you upgrade the cpu get a good i3 or i5

    upgrade the CPU means change the motherboard too

    btw about your spec, mate
    I'm not doubt about processor and RAM performance, 8 GB should working smoothly w/o lag or stuttering
    the GPU, could you tell your full specs about it..?

    and other thing, resolution...
