Must be hard, what with your hectic "go to work at 10, leave a 3" schedule.

I have the PC release too. From what I heard post launch it can run on a variety of set ups with little issue. I had to get a new cooler for my CPU before it overheated but after that it was cool and smooth. I also installed the latest drivers, specifically made GTA V release from AMD. I don't have all the options on high but based on the resource bar in the graphics menue I am using 1506MB out of 2048MB. I have a first gen Intel i7-950, 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a Radeon 5780 Eyefinity.

The limited edition from way back during the first release had that map. It was in the two higher SKUs.

Man the reviews of the PC version are through the roof in hyperbolic acclaim. I want to believe.

the optimization that Rockstar pulled off should be applauded. It's easy to get upset at a game you want to play being delayed. But I'm so pleased w/ the result - and yes, clearly the critical reviews feel the same.

$20 in my steam wallet, $50 in paypal. All of my friends playing this on PC. Do I resist the urge or jump in with all of them?

I loved the 360 version! So should I be loading this up on the PC?

Yes you should. The original release of the game was amazing back then but they've added so much more to these new releases.

I think it would make less sense for someone who owns the PS4 and XBone release to pick up this PC game. But original owners should jump back in if they feel they want to go through the game again.

The Xbox One/PS4/PC version is a huge upgrade from the original and is absolutely worth getting. Wether I can play with you or not, is up in the air, since a lot of my time is wrapped up, but we could set something up. Worst case scenario is that we set up a Racketboy crew in GTAOnline
