Ok, so here are my specs:
i5 2500K @4.2GHz
8Gb DDR3
2x 6870 1Gb
Gta IV installed on SSD
Lates ati catalyst.
Running ENB and ultimate textures 2.0 and I'm getting around 20-35fps when driving around in the city. Occasionally I get 40-50 in "empty" areas and indoors.
1920x1080, not even everything maxed out, tried putting the distances down but does not help much.
I thought I'd max this game without any trouble but seems as though I was wrong.
Monitoring my graphicscards activity and they are not maxed out at any time, CPU-load around 20-25%.

Any thoughts?

GTA 4 ENB series will not run at a solid 60fps even with crossfire 6970's. This game doesn't support crossfire, so you're basically using a single 6870 to process all that graphical load. You're going to have to do some GPU overclocking, remove ENB or live with the framerate.

Well, when using radeonpro to monitor the cards I see activity on both my cards so it seems gta does use it

If you were running GTA4 stock, you would get nice FPS.
But because of ENB and Ultimate Textures 2.0, you're loosing FPS.

I didn't get that good fps when running it stock either, so something seems to be wrong.
Isn't there anything I can do besides running it vanilla? Seems as though my specs are good enough to run it with ENB

Like everyone else said, disable crossfire and try it.
