!!!GTA 4 Lags like crap

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just got a new GFX card to play TBoGT with, and for the first week it was fine. I posted a thread on here about how slow it was running (25 fps @ med/high settings) and discovered it was my RAM that was the problem.

Then, I came back from vacation and ran EFLC and it was so slow I had to lower all the settings to low/zero. Even then, I was getting 5-7 fps! ***? I did everything the same way as I usually do (let it boot for 5 mins, gamebooster, then run the program), I tried different mods, I killed applications, virus scans (although this is a 1 month old build), even tested the speed of the processor. I couldn't fault it, but somewhere in my machine is a major performance killer. Any ideas?

Try to run a separate benchmark, such as unigine, and compare it to the point chart we have here. On my phone right now, can't find it for you. Ifit turns out okay, then it might be a faulty OS. Your OS is just a month old, so I would back up and reinstall.
Also bench all your other hardware if you have the time

This, you need a quad core to run this game smoothly. Also why are you running 1GB of ram? Need atleast 4 GBs today to run games smoothly.

Unfortunately, I can't afford any kind of quad right now, except for maybe a q8300 which I heard was crapola...

Check your temps, the CPU could be throttling back, thus lag.
