I know there's the sticky thread on the top, but I wanted to ask a question. I have a i7 3770k with msi gtx 670 video card set up. I tried to run gta today and it was very laggy. It was running sort of smooth than if i keep moving my mouse cursor around, there's this freeze motion constantly. Is my system not compatible for smooth playing? I thought it was. Maybe something wrong with my game?
What kind of hard drive do you have? GTAIV streams a lot of data and if you are bottlenecked by your disk you will get a lot of stutter.
