I admit my GTA IV ( Steam) is modded but I believe I'm getting a lower fps than what I should be. Would upgrading the graphics card help at all even though it is a largely CPU dependent game? I was looking at selling my inno3D GTX470 to get a GTX670 Direct CU II.

Im not expecting 50-60fps but it seems very low indeed.

These are all the mods I have installed:

- City Cars Pack V1.2 (I think its called - only pack I found which doesn't spawn taxis everywhere)
- Latest version of IcEnhancer (I have disabled forced Anti aliasing)
- Ultimate Textures 2.0 + all currently available HQ texture packs for Manhattan Island by Lord Neophyte
- Explosion Mod (makes explosions larger and more powerful)
- Realizm IV (latest version)
- First Person camera Hack
- Traffic Flow Mod

These are the settings I use:

- Resolution 1920x1080 (60Hz)
- Texture Resolution High
- Water Resolution - Very High
- Reflection Resolution - High
- Shadow Resolution - High
- Night Shadows - Off
- Anisotropic Filtering 16x
- All Sliders are on 50/100
- Definition On
- VSync Off

- Clip Capture Off

And here is my PC:

Win7 HP 64Bit Sp1
i5 2500k - 4.4ghz
8GB DDR3 1600mhz
GTX 470 1280mb @ 700/1700mhz
Antec EA 650w

Here are some pictures captured with FRAPS (my FPS readings are in the top left)


Many thanks to any help given smile.gif

Switch off Shadows (or set to Medium)

I'm currently having a problem with shadows if I have ENB series enabled. Trade off is slightly crap shadows for moderately good FPS.

Need to find a fix though.
