Go there and find out!

Its pretty nice on PC, I personally think it looks better than the 360 version...some say it doesn't @_@ On my rig, I dont get lag, it runs pretty smooth on high settings.

You shouldnt have issues playing GTA4, but you may need lower settings since I have seen VAST improvement from dual core to quads on this. I ran GTA4 with my current rig using a AMD 7750Kuma and got lag, but on my Phenom Quad, no lag

You have an 8800GTX, it should run great. And it will do fine on your dual core as well. Unless you run a very low resolution, the GPU is the bottleneck.
