GTA 5 was initially released in 2013, but the PC port didn't arrive for another two years. The new and updated version for PC, PS4, and Xbox One brought improved graphics, new and exclusive items and features, and other enhancements.

Despite being almost seven years old, the game is still quite difficult to run on modern PCs. With the chip shortage and the rise in prices of graphics cards, gamers have had to resort to budget cards like the GTX 1650. Since this is not a top-range graphics card, players should make certain adjustments to run GTA 5 smoothly.

This article explores such tweaks in detail, including a setup that focuses on quality and another that prefers performance.

Although the global lockdowns have mostly been lifted, the chip shortage hasn't been normalized yet. Graphics cards and processor prices are still quite high across most of the world. In addition, many sellers have resorted to scalping or selling at raised prices despite market prices being lowered.

As a result, gamers are left with no choice but to stick to budget gaming laptops or cheaper graphics cards and processors. The GTX 1650 by Nvidia became extremely popular almost immediately upon its release in 2019, mostly due to its affordable price tag.

Since the lockdown, the GTX 1650 has once again become the most popular choice for gamers worldwide, with GTX 1650 laptops almost flooding the market. Hence, it's understandable that many GTA 5 players are running the game with this card.

This graphics configuration emphasizes on getting the best quality possible without letting the framerate drop below acceptable levels. The FPS stays at over 70 most of the time, although moving over grass might lower it down to around 50. An average FPS of 70 is more than acceptable in a single-player game, and it would also appeal to GTA Online players.
