As we’re talking about a game released in 2002, more than 15 years ago, GTA Vice City doesn’t demand too many hardware requirements to get it running with the maximum quality. These are the minimum requirements to be able to play the game on our Windows PC:
- Operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP.
- Processor: Intel Pentium III at 800 MHz, Intel Celeron at 1.2 GHz or AMD Duron a 1.2 GHz.
- RAM memory: 128 MB.
- Graphics card: GeForce with at least 32 MB of memory, compatible with DirectX 9.0.
- Hard drive space: it requires 915 MB of free storage space on our hard drive but in the case that our graphics card doesn’t support DirectX Texture Compression, it will need an extra 635 MB.
With regard to the recommended configuration, Steam, the online platform that distributes the game, recommends us to have a computer that comes along with the following hardware specifications to be able to play the game at full throttle:
- Processor: Intel Pentium IV o AMD Athlon XP.
- RAM memory: 256 MB.
- Graphics card: GeForce 3 or Radeon 8500 that supports DirectX Texture Compression with at least 64 MB of memory, compatible with DirectX 9.0.
- Hard drive space: it requires 1.55 GB of free storage space on our hard drive, with an extra 635 MB if our graphics card doesn’t support DirectX Texture Compression.
Nowadays, any computer purchased 7 or 8 years ago should meet all these demands to be able to run the game with the maximum graphic quality, offering us smooth action that definitely won’t hinder the gameplay
