Now you say it's because of the video card but you still may be experiencing the same issue. I fixed it by going to the 22.214.171.124 patch. 126.96.36.199 (or whatever the newest is) stuttered on me like CRAZY.
Also use High shadows on 188.8.131.52 not Very High. (Reduces stuttering furthermore)
tl;dr I doubt your card has a problem, it's that game.
yeah but he isnt just complaining of that game only. if we are talking about GTA IV, well.. let me tell you that right next to me a friend's rig, i7 2700k, 16GB ram, TWO GTX 590s in Quad SLI, x2 128GB ssds in raid 0 and the game still lags, i would blame the slow ass cores of the gtx 590 cuz its very well known that GTA IV doesnt support SLI/crossfire
I do believe in his latest post he did in fact say GTA IV was the only thing giving him a problem now, out of the things he's tried.
Also his problem isn't fps lag, it's stuttering. Resembles frame skipping and is a very common problem
with this game.
Also the reason your friend with the dual 590's lags is because that game doesn't support SLI so really out of his four GPU's he's only using one(but you knew this). It is possible to get a smooth FPS in this game, you just need a beast of a single GPU and a very fast processor to make up for it's bad utilization.Edited by Khaotik55 - 2/2/12 at 1:18am
