The Essentials: Minimum Specifications

GTA V and FiveM can be demanding, especially when modded or running custom servers. Ensuring your PC meets these minimum specifications is essential for a smooth experience. Here’s what you need:

Processor (CPU)

  • Minimum: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz or AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor @ 2.5GHz
  • Recommended: 12th Gen Intel Core i5 or higher

A powerful CPU is necessary to handle the complex world of Los Santos, especially when there are many players or mods involved, for a comfortable experience at 1080p we'd recommend a 12th or 14th Gen i5 processors - but if you're looking to REALLY crank the settings up and experience everything Los Santos has to offer then we'd recommend an i7 or even i9 system.

Memory (RAM)

  • Minimum: 4 GB RAM
  • Recommended: 16 GB or more

More RAM ensures smooth gameplay, even when multitasking or running mods on FiveM servers, 16GB is a great place to start for 1080p resolutions - but it's important to note that at high settings and high resolutions you may need to upgrade to 32GB.

Graphics Card (GPU)

  • Minimum: Nvidia 9800 GT 1GB or AMD HD 4870 1GB
  • Recommended: Nvidia RTX 4060 or higher

A solid GPU is crucial for rendering the detailed graphics and smooth animations that make GTA V so visually impressive. To have an enjoyable experience at 1080p we'd recommend an Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics card, but if you're looking to play at 1440p you may want to aim higher.

For those that want to see absolutely everything GTA V has to offer, an RTX 4090 system (combined with an i9 processor and at least 32GB RAM) will typically yield decent frame rates at 4K resolution.

  • Minimum: 72 GB available hard drive space
  • Recommended: NVMe SSD for faster load times

Having ample storage is essential for installing the game and its updates. An SSD will significantly reduce load times, getting you into the action faster.
