Played sleeping dogs, mafia 2, just cause 2 in high and very high settings, can't play GTA IV

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys.
I'm wondering if I should buy a video card or not. I have a CPU i7-3770, 8 GB RAM and an Radeon 4850 512 MB. I know it's an old card, but I can play every game with nice graphics, except for GTA IV. The weird part is that with the same card I have played GTA IV in a lower CPU, 6000+ amd in a Win 7 32 bit, but I cannot play it in Win 8 or win 7 64 bit with the i7 even in lowest setting. There is a weird lag. I was thinking to buy a new card but I'm kind of thinking the problem might continue, since the card is fine with the other games. Do I risk having the same problem even with the new card? Could this be some compatibility problem of this game with my RAM, Motherboard or CPU? (p8z77v-lx and RAM vengeance 1600) I've updated all drivers possible. I don't know what to do anymore. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance

I think GTA IV  is a badly optimized port, and you need a better graphics card.

It's just not a good port. On my setup it's fine but still not super high frame rates.
