Hello, i have sapphire Radeon HD 5570 1GB DDR3, I know it's a budget Card, but it should be able to run the games on medium and low settings right, I have problem running GTA IV EFLC, even if i put the graphic settings to low as possible the game lags like hell, i have the latest patch for the game. This problem happens for this game and COD blacks Ops, all the other games seems to run fine.. Even ACB runs fine(lags when cut scene are playing)... Any solution for this problem?

I think RAM is not the issue, earlier the game was running fine with my NVIDIA 8400GS Video without any lag on low settings with same 2GB of RAM....

no offense but, your system is weak, get more ram, oc your cpu, and buy a better video card if you want to run gta smoothly, the game is poorly coded and is a resource hog especially on your menial cpu, 2.4ghz just does not cut it as a per core frequency these days.
