The problem is that most of us expect this game to run like ass even on the best machines, even several years after release. If you wanna refute my system, go ahead but I think these stats should have no trouble running GTA IV maxed.
Intel i7 990x at stock settings 12 GB ram RaedonHD 7970 Game is installed on an SSD.
There is no reason for this game to not run at max settings at 60fps on this system by now, seeing how it was released in 2008 & has the option of patches available to it. Yet, as I said earlier I can't even access the full range of graphics settings without editing an ini file. I can barely hold 20-30fps, then I drop to around 15fps around more intensive stuff like the bank mission. That is pure BS. As paying customers we deserve better.
I'm sure we can handle this like mature,responsible adults.Isn't that right,Mr Poopy-Pants? -Lt. Frank Drebin
