is your PC capable of smoothly running Rockstar's latest? Today, you can find out, as Rockstar has finally released Grand Theft Auto 5's system requirements ahead of a now delayed 24 March release.

Here's what Rockstar says you'll need to enjoy nu-GTA's brand of violence and mayhem:

Minimum Specs

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 64 Bit Service Pack 2* (*NVIDIA video card recommended if running Vista OS)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB

Recommended Specs

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB

Those are some extremely light minimum specs, which is nice to see. And if you were ever unsure as to how big a game it is, that 65GB hard drive requirement should leave you in no doubt.

This PC release will bring all the benefits of the most recent PS4 and Xbox One versions. That includes the first-person mode and an expanded soundtrack, and, exclusively for the PC version, native 4K support. Just a shame that we've now two more months to wait.

We've spent a long time waiting for GTA 5. So long that we've compiled a list of mods we'd love to see when it comes out. One thing's for sure, GTA 5 will be best on PC.
