I think we just need to accept that GTA IV will only work smoothly on some systems, and like a pig dog on others.
My rig "should" run it maxed out smooth and stable, but it just wont.
I have the same issue, if i turn shadows off, it runs perfectly....part of the reason i built my new rig was to play this with better visuals!!
