GTA 4 IMO seems more graphics-intensive than Crysis... Crysis runs a lot better on my system at fairly high settings.

I have to play GTA 4 at 800x600 16:10, all settings on low, all sliders down, just to get maybe an average frame rate of 30. My GPU is probably to blame.

It doesn't really bother me, since I play all my games at 800x600 (including MW2, which gets a really sick frame rate at high settings).

That is disturbing, not to mention ugly - I run all games at 1920x1080 - you are not experiencing the game play at all. Here are the specs:

Excellent gaming performance in 7

This would max out GTA 4, with the draw distance turned to 50% or so, and AA off if I bothered to install a Phenom x4 965 which runs @ 3.4GHz - without a high clock speed/quad core, don't buy this game.

It's actually the game that is to blame, very poorly coded imo. When they first released it they said it was for future gen hardware(probably to cover their arses!). How you could make a game today and say oh by the way it's optimised for tomorrows hardware.

We're still waiting........* strums fingers

Haha, luckily ii only spent 25 dollars AU on it, bought it overseas along with MW2.

But its a real disappointment, shame i didn't do my research before buying the game.

GTA4 artifacts.
Only game to cause it. The temp on my card is only going to 60c area. That isn't much considering its a 4850. Is there a fix? It almost never happened on xp. Frame tearing was the worst, now this. Any idea?

GTA4 lag
Ok I just upgraded to w7 pro, and I must say I enjoy it. Moved my save file over all is good, but it lags now. The loading is slower too. Is it because w7 actually uses my ram, or is there more to it? If I turn off Vsync it runs smoother but with page tearing. What can I do?
