  1. Because your video card is 2 generations behind compared to the rest of your system.
    The 9800GTX is only a mid-range card by today's standards.

    Also, you're running dual channel on a tri-channel board, just to note.
  2. And what resolution do you play at?
    GTA 4 is a bad coded game, don't expect much with this game, even high end system still difficult to handle this game... :)
  3. haha ik i have dual channel its from my old 790 mobo. im debating getting a 470 now or waiting for the next gen nvidia cards
  4. Take out a stick and run 6GB, you don't need more than 4GB 90% of the time anyways.

    Get 2 GTX460s and SLI. $400 Bliss.
