When using Gamersbin System Requirements start a new thread when you want to add your own predicted requirements for a game. Call the thread something like - "Max Payne 3 predicted system requirements"
I don't think the GTS 450 would be enough to play it on medium-high. GTA IV was released almost 3 years ago and there certainly has been progress in graphics. I say GTX 460 / 5850 for medium-high, and a GTX from 500s for maxing out. I agree about the CPU and RAM though. HDD seems a bit too much, but might be right as well
Term - The HDD for the recently released RAGE was over 20GB so I don't see any reason why a big hitter like GTA V wouldn't have a massive Hard Disk requirement.
The CPU - In one sense Pip is absolutely right, that kind of CPU is still far ahead of the curve in terms of gameplay requirements because of the constant design of games for console. BUT GTA IV was ported so badly that a heavy weight CPU was certainly leaned on by the game to help deliver the game to our PCs. So if GTA V is anything like its predecessor then a massive RIG will be needed to get the game to run.

Yeah a 4 core CPU with 3.0GHZ? If a game requires it, was either poorly developed or is simply visually amazing. I don't know about the GPU guys. In the end my baby (540M) ends up playing every top notch game like Crysis 2 or BF3 on medium or even high so I really doubt such a powerful GPU is required.
