Hello. Recently downloaded GTA5 and realized my rig does not meet the min requirement anymore. Specifically, the CPU is no longer meets the requirement...


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6883220141

I have an ASUS CM1831 with a few upgrade

Upgrade 750watt power supply,

Geforce GTX660

everything else is stock.

the issue is the CPU which is an AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processorand i need at least an

Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)

question is. Upgrade just the CPU or upgrade the mobo CPU combo?

thank you.

Likely that GTA5 program does not comply with the same processing features that AMD CPU has, preferring the Intel CPU features. Not that the AMD CPU is 'obsolete' but a bit too new on the market scene.

Check with the tech desk for GTA5, to see which AMD CPU is acceptable. The GTA5 test team should be working on an acceptable revision that utilizes certain AMD features being offered with that 8120.
