I am getting from 30-55fps at what seems to be random. i see my cpu usage to be very low, most i have seen is 35%. I have no idea what more i could do. cpu @4.9ghz and gpu at 797/1950. Any ideas?

gta runs like crap on every pc so don't expect anything spectacular.
are you using the latest patch of the game? if so, there's not much more you can do.

that sucks. game is really nice when it runs at 50+ fps. the slow downs really diminish it though. and the graphics settings dont do anything!

thanks

what settings are you running it at? i think shadow density can be very demanding.

Use 1.04 patch. its runs the best

Turn off pc shadows or shadow density, it adds very little for a lot of cpu cycles

Set your available vid mem to 2.0 using the command line. It allows you to max out sliders without worrying about too much stuff popping in and it prevents missing texture. It isnt necessary it you have 2gb vid card, but if you have 1gb or less you hsould do it. GTA iv is meant to be played with view distance slider maxed out.

Your CPU is too slow, you need at least 6.0 Ghz

It's a sluggish game, and a console port.

Don't expect much more, just play it.
