i m playing gta iv on intel HD 4000 graphics. my system specs r as follows:
i7 3770K
Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H mobo
4 GB Ram
400W Power supply.

the first time when i was playing gta iv the textures were missing. so i saw a video on youtube which showed me how to play gta iv on decent settings with textures. i had to create a text file by the name of Commandline and the contents in the text file were as follows:

-norestrictions
-nomemrestrict
-percentvidmem 100
-availablevidmem 25.0
-refreshrate 60

i copied this file in the folder in which the game is installed. the game is working very well now. so my question here for everyone here is that if put the availablevidmem as 25.0 am i at risk of overheating the cpu. will this affect my cpu. i m using the same heatsink which came with the processor.

I actually have poor FPS (somewhat) in GTA IV too, even though all other games run fine. On max settings, I sometimes drop to the low 20s.

For some reason GTA4 runs like crap on kepler based cards. I've seen quite a few people mention it on the forums.

Its run like crap for the longest time with AMD cards, thats a known driver issue.

It just seems like it's horribly optimized for PCs. More than ever

No, thats just a kepler issue for you. I ran into a few games like that. The reps on Nvidia forums don't seem to want to hear that though.

As everyone said, gta4 is very poorly optimized. When I play it usually stays at 60 fps , but when i look around certain parts of the game world(when i move camera), gta4 dips to 30 fps or lower. This only happens sometimes. The last time I had it installed didn't do this.
