You might be able to run it on low. Maybe. It was very poorly optimized, so don't get your hopes up.

Try running it on lower settings, have you got the latest hardware drivers for your PC? If not, then you should update them. This game doesn't have good optimization so try playing it on lower settings.

You should add more dRAM to achive playable fps in this game, but I think your GPU might be a little too weak and cause stutters/lag in this game.

Yeh, i agree. 1GB is a little too low for GTA IV but you could play it but expect lag spikes and slow texture rendering. Your CPU might be able to handle the game aswell but don't expect smooth gameplay.

Yes, low settings will give you best/most stable fps, but hard to tell the exact fps count as the optimization in GTA IV are poorly made, and might cause unstabily in some hardware...

Yeah, low settings will work for you the best, but you could try medium settings too although i'm not sure it will be 100% stable FPS and you might get alot of slow texture rendering because of your GPU

You can run it at medium-high settings with a stable 50 fps imo

Sorry, but I really doubt stable 50fps on medium/high. Maybe at low settings, but medium-to-high will cause lag spikes with his current rig; as this game isn't very well/too well optimized.

Medium/high with stable 50FPS on his PC will not be that stable. It would most probably create alot of lag spikes.

Hm, try medium-high or high even. The game isn't that well optimized but i'm sure you can go past low-medium.

You could try low settings with your current monitor resolution but theres 50/50 chance that it will lag.

You might be able to run it on low setting 720p with 30fps, but texture pop-ins and slower texture loading/rendering may occure.
