Have you tried the FRAPS benchmark? Just curious because I get similar results to you from the in-game benchmark but my FRAPS results were about 10-15 FPS lower.

Did you use those same exact settings that I used for the benchmark ?. Were you able to play ingame with those same exact settings that you also used for the benchmark ?.

I don't use the exact settings as you (I use MED texture quality), I just wanted to find out if others were getting the same kind of differential between the in-game benchmark and the FRAPS benchmark.

I finally decided to buy GTA4 last night and I feel let down. It feels like a solid game but I can't shake the feeling of being disappointed. First off, I don't mind GFW since I do have a live account and I use on when playing Dawn of War II but having to log in every time just to be able to save my games is complete and utter bullcrap in general. In addition to that, I'd have to log into that POS "social lounge" from Rockstar just to play multi? No thanks pal. I don't want to have to log in THREE friggin times just to enjoy online gaming. Steam -> Social Lounge -> GFW?! Ugh.

Granted, I did not create a Social Lounge account but why the hell does it have to "terminate and stay active" in the damn taskbar? It's annoying to quit "twice" when I'm done playing GTA4 (right click -> Exit). I really feel like Rockstar did a number on the PC gamers with this release. I really want to enjoy the game but I also want a "clean" experience. I'm disappointed. Too bad Valve doesn't do refunds otherwise, I'd be waiting for one right now.

Eff you Rockstar.

If you set it to login automatically you never have to do that. I have mine set to auto login and it takes no more time than when the game starts up.

Can someone with a 4870x2 please let me know what fps they get @ 1980x1080 (max settings apart from view distance) as mine mostly < 25fps. Whereas my old single GTX260 was around 25-35fps (40 in some areas).

The 4870x2 hits 60fps by the sea but in the city its drops drastically, sometimes drops into the teens! Something isn't right here please help. Is this a known/fixed issue?

Pretty well actually, it's mostly CPU and RAM dependant, not so much on GPU.
