    That's easiest thing to fix, new OS and go.

    well I finally bought the PC and I am very satisfied with the games that I am capable of playing (Dying Light/Far Cry 4/PES 2015/Payday 2/Mordor).
    But I want to play GTA V when it comes out. Will it run smooth?
    Any additions to it?

    Congrats, GTA5 is still moot point as it's not out yet and if they fix problems they had with V4 you should be able to run 5 at decent settings.

    I know you already bought it.

    To buy a used computer I would need to test it before buying it.
    Check temps etc.

    I would require a full retail version of the os.
    & a set of factory recovery disks.

    My suggestion is upgrading that GTX 650 to something like at least a GTX 660 or GTX 750 Ti. Or, you can go AMD with a R7 260X or R9 270.

    Judging from GTA V's system requirements, and Max Payne 3 PC version, I'd bet V will be decently optimized. I know for sure that it's not a port.
