Many thanks Rockstar for getting to work fixing these issues early on. I am significantly disappointed in the performance of the game out of the box, but whats done is done.
I downloaded and installed the 180.84 patch.
My system specs are:
e6600 @ 2.4 ghz (stock)
4gb 800mhz ddr2
eVGA 8800gtx 768 (stock)
My performance before 180.84 was about 33 fps, running
Textures on high
Render quality on low
ViewDistance @ 40
DetailDistance @ 40
Traffic @ 30
Shadows @ 0
Res @ 1680 x 1050
Since 180.84, I saw NO boost in fps, BUT the game does run much smoother. Stuttering has decreased significantly. I highly recommend this patch to all Nvidia users.It should be noted that my ammunition counter does not display on my HUD anymore. I upgraded from 178.24 to 180.84.
