Hi buddies I have 1 GB Card namely Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO but it is not running well GTA with full graphics textures and shaders always disappears from the screen. I need your help whether this card is supported for GTA 4 or not, further more many games like Resident Evil 5, Far cary 2, Dead Space are running very well with this card with high graphics.


with profound regards,

GTA IV is a very intensive game because it is poorly coded. I have played it on a 9600 GSO 386mb however and it ran fine on medium settings at 1024x768.

its not that intensive - it runs on my 2 year old rig, that tells you something

have you updated the chipset and video drivers? aswell as the game?

test your hardware?

also gta prefers quad cores (heaps of CPU power) over a high end video card, although video performance is still needed, and a 9600GSO isnt exactly high end

updating from ver1.0 to 1.1(if im not mistaken) gave me 3-5fps boost, cant remember the exact figures though.

my guess is that you're forcing to eat all that 1gb RAM on visual details. well dont. i had a 4870 1gb (more than 2x faster than your card) that ran that game on 1440x900 and still it wasnt the most fluid experience

drop the visual settings a lil bit..

I'm resisting the urge to respond with simply "DUH!!". Anyway, your GPU simply cannot keep up with the game at high settings. Since the developers knew this I doubt they even bothered to test a lower end card like the 9600GSO with anything above medium. Lower the visual details, update the game, and if you still have trouble try updating your drivers.

Don't feel bad. I run GTA 4 like crap with a GTX 260 216 shader SC. I think it has to do with the cpu more than GPU. My CPU sucks e5200 2.5gigs. I ran it 1650x1050 high settings, but visual distance was below middle of the slider.

What's your cpu speed?

You should OC that e5200. It OCs very well. 3.3-3.5ghz should be no problem even on the stock cooler and will make a real difference in cpu intensive games.

GTAIV is shoddy CPU bound console port, and has very inefficient coding as far as GPU usage goes. It is not a fair representation of any gaming PC's abilities.

apache_lives' experience with a fairly heavily OC'd quadcore is a common occurance, as even the very high end systems, with OC'd i7s with overkill graphics solutions have a tough time breaking 60fps.

1gb of ram is really low for playing modern games.

Ah, you have a P4. That's the problem there, it has nothing to do with you video card. GTA4 is very cpu intensive so there's simply no way you are going to be playing that game acceptably with that processor.

But many games like Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Resident Evil 5, Call of duty modern warfare 2. wolfentien, dead space and many games with heavy graphics are running well in this is system
