Hi there

Just got GTA 4, and it is nearly impossibly slow, even on the lowest settings.
My computer:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x
GPU: HIS H585FN1GD Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
MOB: GIGABYTE GA-890XA-UD3
PSU: XFX Black Edition P1-750B-CAG9 750W
OS: Win7

It is not that I simply expected more from my computer, the game lags to the point that I can't even play it.
Any thoughts?

I also have the same problem.........
but when i patched it with 1.0.3.0/1.0.4.0(forgot which one of these two), I was able to play on everything maxed out..
and my gpu is worse and slower than yours..

GTA IV does have really bad port.
How much FPS do you get ? I know it is unplayable, but just for an info.

Since you have a good video card and processor, patching the game, as it was said above, can give you better performance.

Thank you everyone. Sorry, I had to go away for a week and couldn't check my email (imagine, there still are places on Earth without internet access).

Latest patch (1.0.8.0) fixed everything- paying flawlessly now. Albeit, not on the "highest settings", but it is good enough.

You can download and install "Fraps" application..
Start the app first and then start any game and note the range of FPS that u get..
and you can play on maximum settings with patch 1.0.4.0
