I haven't got a CFire board it's only a cheap G31 mobo.

Ok i'm going to need to sell my Hd4850 She is not up to the test anymore.

Also, while your at it, check out some new MOBOs on NewEgg. You can get a 4850 for pretty cheap and a crossfire motherboard for as low as $70 US.

lol at least you guys can run it. gta4 has caused the near death of my PC. it freezes no matter what settings i choose, ranging from 1024x768 to 1920x1200, all inclusive.

and thats on medium textures with view and detail distance @ 35, vehicle desnity @ 40.

well i lie, it does run. for 5 minutes. when it runs its very smooth though, the benching was over 40fps but then it freezes so yeah.

oh and lets not forget to thank the latest 8.12 hotfix drivers for causing some serious issues... even though ATI said they were only needed for 4850 owners i still tried them with the hopes of helping GTA4. GTA4 froze, so i tried Left4Dead. my frames more than halved.

SO, rolled back to regular 8.12s. they wont work. they install ok, ask me to reset. then when i boot back in, it says no ATI display driver installed or working.

all for this stupid game. GRRRR @$@#$@!!!

It sounds to me like your motherboard is just not keeping up with your CPU/GPU, or it's unstable because of the overclock (you said it doesn't handle it well?)

Crossfire won't help GTA IV the game doesn't support it.

I might turn down the detail dis:

to give me a higher FPS

I would love a avg fps of 35 to 40. so the game runs smoothly.

What have Rockstar done to this game.

Could it be my Pentium E2220 @ 3.3Ghz bottle necking my GPU

It was wonderful modifying the older GTA games. Mainly because rockstar is lazy and don't bother to use any sort of engine or fancy coding, making the whole processes very easy. Everything practically runs as is and always kills current systems upon release. Not till a year later when people stop caring for the game does system performance match up well enough that the majority of people can fully enjoy it >.<
