The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has some rather grand requirements to run at a pristine 60fps. Also, it has seven installation discs. You're probably going to have to do some heists yourself if you want your PC to play this game with a 4k display and 60fps.

With Grand Theft Auto V's PC version arriving in just a few days (four to be exact, not that we're counting down or anything) there's been a whole slew of information dumps that VG247 has rounded up. To start out with, we finally have the requirements for running the game on 1080p at 60fps, at a 4k display and 4k with 60fps in motion. We also have the general system requirements atop its recommended system specs.

To start out with, let's get the general requirements out of the way. You can check them out below:

  • 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
  • DVD Drive

Then there's the recommended specifications:

  • 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
  • DVD Drive

These are both in relation to playing the game at 1080p and 60 fps, but what about if you want to run the game at 4K at 30fps or 60fps? Rockstar has come out with the specs for that as well, saying, "to run the game on a 4K display at 30fps, you'll need at minimum an AMD HD 7870 or Nvidia GTX 760 with 2GB of VRAM." Rockstar went on to say that for 60fps you will need a "high-end SLI or Crossfire setup."

The possible amount of discs for the actual game has also been released and we're counting seven, according to the picture below. There was also a tweet on Grand Theft Feed's Twitter that showcases a pretty thick looking package for the game, so seven discs doesn't exactly seem unreasonable. It's not like you're running them all at once.

The PC version will also be coming with an editing tool that will allow fans to create, stage and edit their own movies that they can then upload to YouTube as well as other social media sites. There will also be a new radio station that will broadcast the 14 tracks of Welcome to Los Santos. Finally there will be the option to import their console character over to the new PC version.

You can look out for Grand Theft Auto V to come out for PC on April 14. We're counting the days, Rockstar. Trevor Phillips Industries is expanding.
