Just Cause 2 lag in towns

I have a problem with lag in Just Cause 2. It only lags in towns. I usually get 60 fps in other areas but when I'm in a town it drops to like 40 fps and it's noticeable. I'm not playing on max but I think that my PC is enough powerful for atleast high settings. Btw, can someone tell me how to check the GPU and CPU usage while I'm playing?

My settings in game:

Intel Core2 Quad Q8400 3,2 GHz
Deep Cool ICEEDGE 400 NI
4 GB of RAM DDR2, 800Mhz
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6870, 1 GB, 940/1185 Mhz
Corsair 600CX ATX 600W
ASRock G31M-S
Case Fan Led AK-170CB-4BLS 80 mm
Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit
LG 23,6" LCD W2443T-PF
5.1 Microlab FC 360

  1. turn the water detail down. it chews up resorces and you have turned off ssao so it wont look its best anyway. also reduce the aa if your playing @1080p you wont really notice it when your moving about unless your playing on a 27+inch screen.
  2. I see you're using a 32bit Windows 7 with a ram of 4gb, you should go for 64bit to be able to used all of that 4gb memory. About the game well your cpu will struggle a bit because Just Cause is a bit demanding especially if your running @ 1080p though your card is good just have the game set on default. But you will not always have a constant 60fps with that built.
  3. Yes, I know. I'm going to upgrade to 64bit soon and get another 4gb. I think I fixed the lag problem... I think I just had to restart the game. I was playing 3 hours nonstop and when I closed the game and came came back in a hour later the lag was gone... I'm even able to play it with High res. shadows with 58-60 fps all the time. Thanks :)
