Strange the above tip didn't work for you though, it works in most cases; for the record, you need to have vsync activated in game for it to work properly, did you at least notice the cap on the framerate when tryng it? If not, you didn't do it right, I mean, it's cool just saying. (also, if it works you can't change your graphic settings on the graphics menu or it will override the framerate cap)

I suggested the above thing cause I had the exact same problem, in very specific parts of the map too, I, as well thought it was a hard drive issue, but it turns out it's a leak on the memory buffer, last time rockstar was 'looking into it', I guess they completely gave up by now; but I guess this is not your issue then so...

Also, one more thing, steam automatically updates you to the latest patch which to be fair, is far from being the best patch fps wise (almost no system can play the game with very high shadows without stuttering), patch 4 and 5 gives you the best results, if you have the money and you're willing to buy the retail version, go for it, and try those patches, the game is very cheap nowadays anyway. good luck.

Heey! It worked smile.gif I had to put vsync on biggrin.gif Thank you very much thumb.gif
