What does the American Dream mean today?
For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.
For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

Intel Xeon is server CPU, with a extremly high price, better for you to get Intel Core i7-3770K or better, btw you can use a GeForce GTX 780 with that, I'm not recomended for you to get that CPU.

What? A Xeon (eg. Xeon E3-1231v3) is the same as a i7 without the integrated graphics (you don't need wehen you have a external gpu) for the price of an i5…


They cost approximately a bit over 200 €. What is there extremely high??

This game is not optimized at all! -.-


Sometimes framedrops to 37fps at all Very High exept Texture and Reflection with V-Sync. That really sucks. I can play almost all games on very high without stuttering…


And some other thing to mention: The V-Sync limits to 55/56 fps although my monitor and the res is 60Hz
