Re-install your game , and patch it to v 1.0.4 . And it is true , you need a quad core to play this P.O.S. !! My sig rig(apart from the vc) are in rma , and i'm now using a dual core , which cut my fps to a third of what they were . Yes , with a MF gtx480 . Sucks , doesn't it ? I'm able to play crysis on high w/ 1800x1440 resolution and get ~45 average but this game ... NOT REALLY ..

Hey wait a second, maybe the OP needs an overclock on that CPU. I remember reading somewhere that overclocking helps a ton for this game, that was a long time ago though and I'm not sure whether the latest patch fixes that issue or not.

I DON"T think he really needs to overclock that beast of a CPU . It uses a lot of cpu power but still .. That's a 2.93 ghz cpu if i'm not wrong...

It's a poorly optimized, poorly ported console game.

Turning down the draw distance helped me a bit.
Its not ported. It was completely remade for the pc. Thats why it was released months after the console versions.


As for the lag problem, try runing it in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3. GTA4 doesnt seem to like W7 for some reason and I used to have this problem.

that's ridiculous. I shouldn't have to overclock my cpu for ANY game out in the market right now.

figured out whats wrong on page 2, its unpatched because i downloaded a copy. Thanks for all the input though you guys. I will buy the full GTA collection on steam and hopefully it'll have no problems.

With your rig i would play that game perfectly,some guys say to you that its a bad ported game,you serious guys?You can't say that he has I7 not dual core,I suggest you install patch 1.7 for gta 4 and it will run perfect smooth.

yep, will let you know once i buy it on steam! it has to be the patches. i downloaded the cracked version.

only thing, ONLY thing my pc somewhat lags is HDD and VGA, and even those aren't that bad. not bad at all. if i have problems with games because of CPU/RAM, there is something horribly, horribly wrong. 12 gigs, and i7 950 @ 4.2, i'd be pretty shocked if that was the case lol
