PC System Analysis For Grand Theft Auto V Requirements
You need a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz or FX-8350 processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 660 to run Grand Theft Auto V system requirements at recommended. You can expect to get around 60FPS at 1080p screen res on high graphics settings with this hardware. You should also have 8 GB system memory. The best chance at playing this at minimum sys specs on a 1280x720 screen res will be if your PC has at least the GeForce 9800 GT/Radeon HD 4870 graphics card. The CPU required to meet minimum requirements is a Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Black Edition/Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz processor. With that PC you will be getting around 30FPS on low graphics and may need to adjust some of the other Grand Theft Auto V graphics options. System memory for min is 4 GB. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 11.00 or Grand Theft Auto V won’t run. This means you will require a 10 year old PC to play smoothly.

I wonder, why do people keep asking if their PC can run it or no. When instead of just asking it here in the comments, they can use web site's built-in function

If anyone has any good settings that look good but have good performance, pls reply, cheers.

medium maybe, but with 1gb gpu could be very limiting
i own almost the same as yours and could do around 45-50 fps in low

This GPU can run the game with 40-50 fps average on 720p normal settings. I have played GTA V with R5 M230, and considering that tha R7 240 is somewhat faster-my final answer is YES. Don't go too far and expecting it to run at 1080p or high settings though. Keep your expectations low and enjoy!

You would get 60 or above most of the time I believe. I had an 8350 with a 1050 ti that could run it well. I would say an SSD is another integral part to playing this game as well.
