Did you try turning off the Windows event log?
Might want to check out this thread
It helps "some people". Give it a shot. Helped me out.

I have to turn shadows down to high from very high to get it to run smoothly with everything else on full. This is only on 1360x768 too. Every other game runs fine in full. Guess the optimization is just poor.

it's the 1090t that's the problem... the game is highly cpu dependent.

Try and get more out of your cpu and see if it helps

EDIT: what clock are you running on it anyways?

game runs fine, as long as your using a very good cpu, which amd is not
Why do people all ways jump to conclusions? This is what every one says. He could have a 980x and i bet you will still say, its your cpu.

Can you give us some examples? Like frame rate? Is it that you just cant turn every thing up because it says you dont have enough video ram? Their are ways around that.

If your running @ stock speeds on the 1090T then that could be why.

You have lots of vram, which is good. However, gta iv is really cpu dependent. Your phenom II is the bottleneck.

Uhh, what would be the point in saying that when it's not true? His cpu is what his bottleneck is. I personally have played gta iv with a phenom ii x4 @ 3.6ghz and a 2500k @ 4.6ghz, and the difference is night and day. Sure, that has a lot to do with clock speed, but sandy bridge is much quicker than phenom II clock for clock as well.

we wouldn't be saying this if he had a 980x since this wouldn't happen with a 980x
