"Grand Theft Auto V" publisher Rockstar Games has announced in a recent post, the minimum and recommended specifications for the title's PC version.

Minimum required specs include an operating system which could be one of the following: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1 or Windows Vista 64 Bit Service Pack 2. If the latter runs Vista OS, an NVIDIA video card is recommended.

Two types of processors are set to support the PC game: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 clocked at 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) or AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor clocked at 2.5GHz (4 CPUs).

Video card must be NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11), while sound card should be 100% DirectX 10 compatible. The game will run at a minimum memory of 4 GB and an HDD Space of 65 GB. DVD Drive is expected.

As for recommended specs, Rockstar listed the first three operating systems as viable choices. However, different processors were suggested, including Intel Core i5 3470 clocked at 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) and AMD X8 FX-8350 clocked at 4GHZ (8 CPUs).

The same minimum sound card is recommended, but video cards may also be NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB and AMD HD7870 2GB. Rockstar doubles the minimum RAM into 8 GB, while HDD Space remains as noted.

Unfortunately, this list of officially-recognized specs came months before the title's arrival. Rockstar has announced that the PC version's release date has been moved once more, this time on Mar. 24, 2015. According to GameSpot, this has been the title's second delay, being initially set for a Fall 2014 launch. The first delay set it on Jan. 27, 2015.

If "GTA V" would arrive on Jan. 27, we're supposed to be less than two weeks away from seeing Los Santos and Blaine County in PC.

"Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be. Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice we make only when we know it is in the best interests of the game and our fans." Rockstar said in a statement,

That said, fans can expect that the PC game won't be coming out prematurely. The developer has also informed that the "GTA" Online for PC will be supporting up to 30 players. This will be launching alongside the title's PC version.

Online Heists are available among consoles "in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch."

Rockstar has also released a series of "GTA V" PC screens, which you can check out here: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5.
