    Can I run GTA V?


    Hello to everyone! I am not a gamer but I think GTA V is so interesting and I would like to play it, but Im not sure if my computer can run it. It's an HP Envy dv6, and I will write the specifications below. I have played GTA IV with this computer and the truth is that it ran it a little bit slow, but people say that this one is more eassy to run. So can you help me, please?

    Intel (R) Core (TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz
    RAM: 6 GB DDR3
    OS: Windows 8.1 64 bits
    Hard Disk: SATA 1 TB 5400 rpm
    Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M (GDDR3 2GB)

    Welcome to the forum!

    There has been several questions like this lately. Not to pass the buck but it may be better to ask on the GTA forum. I believe you'll be alright as that is a fairly fast mobile GPU.
    It also depends exactly which version you have as described here as to just how well it will perform: NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M - NotebookCheck.net Tech

    There are tons of variables when it comes to playing games on laptops.

    EDIT: Here is interesting thread on GTA forum: Post your PC specs and AVERAGE framerate. - PC - GTAForums

    Reading through some of that I'm not so sure it will run well.

    i'm sure you can run it but you will have decrease the resolution a bit to get a playable frame rate
    i'm using laptop to play games *specs in profile* and yes it's a bit creepy when you use full res.
    for example i decreased the resolution in battle field 3 to 1280X720 and it run on about 50 fps
    and here is a piece of advise fro a person who tried a lot
    DON'T EVER trust the sites which frustrate you with "sorry, you can't run it"
