it's 1360x768, but the only thig that seems to help is making all the graphics to the lowest and the resolution to 800x600, but then it's not ven fun to play and even then i only get 28fps maximum, even though im only using ~200mb/~970mb video memory

Yeah some games just look horrific when playing on very low graphics :P. Thats all really I can suggest, maybe window it? I'm sure somewhere on GTA IV menu you can tick Run in window. That sometimes helps. When I used to have a rubbish pc I used to put my games in a window form so they'd run better.

The Celeron is a weak processor, that's where the issue is. It has a small Cache and is not made for gaming.
GTAIV is CPU intensive, the reason why Dual-Core is required and Quad-Core is recommended.

To run in windowed mode:
Right click desktop icon and select "Properties";
Look tor "Target";
At the end of that hit the space bar and put "-w" then click "Apply" and "Ok";
After that it should run in windowed mode.

it's a mid-end card, but how can i run all the other games on maximum setting then? it's impossible that i can't play gta IV with my specs...
In these days it is considered a low end card.

GTA4 uses an 'advanced' engine that requires a lot of processing power

'advanced' means that it was ported poorly from consoles

Amd lag

hello Quinn here

I have a 8 core AMD processor and a 2GB Radeon HD 6670 graphics card, I am also running windows 8

and I'm still getting lag from GTA IV but only when I play on medium or higher graphics.

I don't know weather it is my graphics card or other because I'm not sure about how good graphics cards are???

please help

thanks
