Well yougamers finally released their benchmarking tool for GTA IV. You can test your PC here. Although I have to say, it is very odd that it puts the minimum / recomended requirements so close to each other on the scale, that the Quad core literally has no effect, so this might be of no indication at all as to whether or not your PC can really run it.
But I would say it is safe to say that you will be able to run the game well if you exceed the requirements by a comfortable margin.
Click on "Can you play it?" if you didn't figure that out already.
System Reqs are as follows:
Minimum System Requirements Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 1.8GHz Intel Core2Duo or 2.4GHz AMD Athlon X2 64 1 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 1.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista) 16 GB free hard drive space 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad or 2.1GHz AMD Phenom X3 2.5 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 2.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista) 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870

I am gonna make this a sticky so it doesn't get lost. I ran the test on my quad apparently it passes with everything except of course the 320mbs of gpu ram. I don't mind slumming it for a bit. I don't intend to buy a new GPU till Nvidia gets off it's arse and produces something of the 8800 calibre again (and I don't mean rebadging existing products eh Nvidia).
These "benchmarks" are stupid. All they do is take your computer specs and line them up side by side with the minimum and recommended specs.
Anyone that knows what's in their computer can do that in literally less than a second of reading the requirements. And lets face it, if you don't have the slightest idea what's in your computer, odds are you probably won't be running the game very well anyways.
They said my Pentium D 3.6Ghz meets the minimum CPU requirements... hah.
