GTA IV wont recognize Dual XFX6970

I just built my gaming rig and can't get GTA IV to work correctly. It launches fine, but when i go to the graphics settings it displays
an error message that my GPU can't handle the game and i need to lower the settings, which are locked from any adjustment! Really?!!! My DUAL XFX6970 2GB's cant handle this 2yr old game?
I have the 11.2 driver installed, which is the latest. I've tried reinstalling kthe game and it direct x components, no good.
My old pc with a dual core pentium and 1 4870 1 GB would play the game at medium settings.(had probs luanching the game like every one else, but when it launched it worked fine)
Any suggestions?

    OH BTW, other games are not problems so far, seems to be isolated to this game.
  2. did you install all the patches?
  3. same prob here but with 3 xfx 6970s and a 2600K almost same memory just ripjaws and a p67a-ud7 MOBO
  4. it might have to do with the latest drivers

    i have experienced micro shuddering on a more extreme level in just cause 2 since i installed 11.2 drivers

    i hope these drivers are not broken
  5. ill try the old ones and tell you if it is a driver problem
  6. sry.. couldn't try the old ones (they were to unstable to even use photoshop)
  7. works if you disable crossfire/trifire

    just do that

    remember space to apply and resolution is at the top of the options --> graphics page
