|No I am saying the settings the OP is using are way too high for the 9600gt. I could push GTA 4's settings higher if I wished but I prefer a better frame rate so I keep the settings slightly lower than they need to be. The settings I suggested there were for a 9600gt. I actually run the game with a mix of Very High/High settings on my PC but that was the POINT I have a GTX260 the op doesn't.|
I think he needs to turn shadows off, and his problems will be gone. I have a XFX 9600GT 512MB DDR3 and my settings are:
Resolution: 1024 x 1280
Texture filter: HIGHEST
View distance: 30
Detail distance: 40
Shadow density: 0
The game runs fine, an average of 30/35 FPS when there's lot of action going on, and 40/45 FPS when I'm in more calm places. If I lower the texture setting to MEDIUM, the framerate is even better. I don't mind sacrificing the FPS a little bit just to have those amazing nice textures, they look much better than the MEDIUM ones.
I have an E8400 and 2GB of RAM (I need more RAM). So yeah, I think he needs to turn shadows off only. They look very bad unless you have them on HIGH setting, and they hurt your framerate a lot. I prefer to have them off.

They don't really have to "hope" for anything with the 58** series. Early benchmarks (game benchmarks in addition to synthetics like 3dmark) place a single 5870 slightly ahead of 295 card for a cheaper amount ($399 reported for the 5870). Crank up the AA on very demanding games at very high resolutions and the 5870 demolishes the 295 due to significant advances in the way the AA filtering works with the new series of cards. Even on the few test where the 295 did beat the 5870 which was done almost entirely at lower resolutions it was only by a marginal amount of FPS. There is also a benchmark floating around on some of the gaming sites that compare 2X 5870's against 2X 295's in quad sli, more or less identical results to the above.
The 5850 has demolished the 285 by vast margins in most games for again a lower cost.
Once the card(s) get a more dedicated line of drivers it should be very interesting to observe the results.
I don't think this was about graphics cards, but CPUs
