One would think that a game that is nearly 5 years old on the PC in 2020 should pose no challenge to your hardware but that is not the case with GTA 5. Rockstar released the game on console way before it ever came out on PC and took nearly 2 years to release GTA 5 for PC.

PC enthusiasts couldn't wait to get their hands on GTA 5 as it was one of the most anticipated games in the history of video gaming. The PC community was excited even more as it would open up so many possibilities for the modding community.

However, fans were well aware of GTA 5's technical brilliance and knew it would demand a lot from PC hardware. The game, even in 2020, is still one of the most demanding games in terms of hardware.

No one can deny that GTA 5 is a technical powerhouse and still looks and plays quite brilliantly when compared to more recent games.

The minimum required hardware will run GTA 5 with the settings turned to Low or Medium, depending on the hardware, to increase performance over quality. More often than not, players will prefer a higher frame rate over better textures and resolution.
