I would get like 15FPS then I installed this, and I get 45 or so at 1920x1080
Your cpu isn't bottlenecking the living crap out of that 570?!

Funny, because my 460 is bottlenecked by my CPU.

Your resolution is lower than mine



Your not bottlenecking that GPU, I had a pentium D extreme before this with a GTX 460 1gb, and everyone knows netburst CPU's are the worst thing ever

my old 2007 sigrig with a core 2 duo had 1gb of ram, i got about 4x the FPS by going to 3gb. also, GTA4 uses about 2gb of ram on my sig rig, as well as windows, so about 3.2gb of usage

GTA IV eats quadcores for breakfast, never mind your dual core. It uses almost all of my RAM as well... It's not gpu dependent.

If your not a graphics whore, a good 2 years at least.

For me, it will get replaced by summer's end.
