I did every other mainstream mission as far as I can remember. I don't see other NPC locations on the map.

Cheers but what about my >25fps average? My single 260 was higher than that. Any thoughts guys?

Thing is, at max setting crysis runs smoother than this, and on my old 260 I had higher fps in GTA...?

GTA was poorly coded, so even if the graphics look worse, it needs more power.

I turn water quality down, it helps alot. I am rarely looking at the river/ocean and it cuts down on the rain, which usually beats the he!! outa my system...


the rest I leave on High, and frame rates vary, sometimes dipping down to the mid-low 20's other times hitting 40+

The game is still very playable at such low frame rates tho. I dont see any bad stutter...

I reformatted recently and lost my save games so I have not been able to get back into it tho...
