My screen is a 22" 1680x1050.

I play GTA IV on 1440x900 so I can keep the FPS in the lower 30s at night and when raining.

Play it in whatever resolution your desktop is set on (i.e the native resolution)

1680 x 1050, but using that Ultimate GTA IV Performance Fix thread trick

So in terms of reflections and graphical quality it's 800 x 600 but it's been forced up

omg dont do that. Think of it like this, you need to smoosh big textures into just small area, so really a small screen size is making your game work harder to decide what pixel to color at any given time... So... You should try higher resolutions one by one until it goes slow for you, esocially with this game which I don't think will ever look really really good unless you go max (2560?). But the higher you can push the resolution the better, man, especially with this game and not just because it looks like GameBoy Advance games on that resolution (it does, you got to admit, it looks like an animate MSpaint image at that resolution), but also so you don't end up down-scaling to the point where a small resolution is no longer helping you, it is instead beginning to bottleneck you because once you go to low you clear up math for other things, then you put more load on the math when forcing it to lower the resolution of textures. I bet you keep the same settings and go at the very least to 1024 you won't see much of a difference in speed, and if anything is noticed, you will see it actually goes faster

This all depends on your setup. You might be playing on a single core with 256mb video, integrated.

graphics are good, so are fps for the most part.
lack of AA is weak though..

22" 1680x1050

soon to be 22" 1920x1080 due to my monitor's backligth starting to flicker which isn't a good sign,

or even a 22" 1920x1200 depending on how rich i feel biggrin.gif

amd athalon 64 x 2, 4600+ 2.4 ghz
8500 gt 1024 mb
4gig ram

at 800x600, i can get 16-20 fps, enough to only get kicked from MP 90% of the time. If i slide up to a higher resolution, my fps drops to 10 fps or less - unplayable.
Increasing the view distance or detail distance drops the FPS even worse. I've ordered a OC 9600 512mb nvidia, and a power supply, but considering my cpu speed, it prolly wont help too much.

have you tried the Ultimate GTA IV Performance Fix sticky to try to bump up res?
you play at a higher res without sacrificing (much) performance

view distance and detail distance are about GPU, I think, so hopefully your new graphics card can handle it better

traffic density is about CPU, but I don't think you need to have it at 1

I have a duo core 2.4GHZ
256 MB 8600 GTS
2 GB RAM

and at medium medium 15 20 33 0 I get about 25 fps (missing textures though)

so perhaps you could try using some command lines, I think your computer could probably do better

1024x768 on my 19inch CRT...

I don't mind, especially since I get a playable FPS (1280x1024 is too slow).
I played San Andreas for ages in 640x480 until I got a new (this) computer. Can't wait to finally max IV sigh.gif

Some day...

1680x1050, high high is probably the smoothest combo for me. In game seems to average around 25-40fps.
