GTA IV still lagging...

ahh... just bought the game, patched it ( thru steam ) and it still lags... when im on foot i achieve up to 15fps and in car up to 12fps.... i notice that it doesn't drop or go up.... the only places that it doesn't lag in are at home and at the beach ( i get more than 40fps there ) i also tried setting my graphics to minimum and making it on high priority but it didin't help... also i can run crysis 2 on medium graphics with no lag at all... windows 7 64bit nvidia gt 240 graphics card, 8gb ram, Inter celeron cpu E1500 @2.20ghz and 2.2ghz. Thanks!

@Itjust Hmm, it should be able to run fine your just a bit below. Tryed turning your graphics down? Try running it in a window it normally helps or if your prefer running it full screen turn the resolution down to somthing like 640x480

Also, i tested Mafia II now and its at minimum too, though i can play it on maximum setting without overclocking just fine, with no lag at all! same with MW 2 i always have 70+fps on it and it says that i can hardly run it ( im playing on maximum graphics )....never goes below 45...

The GT240 is too weak to handle GTA4
Low end cards are not design to run such games

GTA IV Requires a good graphics card. If you do decide to upgrade make sure your computer will be able to handle it
