Hiya I just for GTA IV for PC expecting to be able to max it out really easily and was really sad when I was getting a very inconsistent 30fps at a very low 1440 x 900. I have tried lowering the settings but I still get the same frame rate? any ideas as to why this is happening? See my specs in my sig by the way. Thanks :)

GTA IV isn't very well optimized.
Have you downloaded the latest VGA drivers? also make sure you have the latest patch for the game.
How's the performance in other games ?

Performance in other games is fantastic, getting like 40fps at my current resolution is crysis maxed out, yeh I've got the latest patch and VGA drivers :|

Video's on youtube show other people with extremly similar specs getting 60fps at 1980 x 1080 o_O

hmm,I remember getting 30-40FPS at 1920x1200 .(My specs are i7 860/HD 5970)
I think those guys used different settings.

It's not a consistent though, it drops down to about 10 frequently and is far from playable :|

hmm,That's strange.
Have you run the benchmark tool ? if so,then how much FPS did you get?

I think it's the card. I did a stability check and it keeps blue screening :(

Could be, but it's strange that it works fine in every other games(as you mentioned)
