2nd: u should be able to run IV smoothly (both u got a strong rig and W8 gives FPS boosts in games compared to the fps in W7)
btw, no issues on the compability, it works like it does in W7, but remember to install Net Framework 3.5.1 or else games that doesn't use Net4 wont launch

|If I bye one more EVGA« Geforce« GTX 590 3GB then will there be any performance difference between GTX 580 1.5GB GDDR5 and GTX 590 3GB GDDR5. Which patch should I use to run it properly without any lag and texture popups in Windows 8? Please answer me and what would be the performance if I SLI the GTX 580?|
GTA IV does not support Multi-GPU (SLI and CrossFire) and depending on the situation multi-GPU can even decrease the performance of the game so that's not a good idea. GTA IV Patch 126.96.36.199 has the best performance of all patches but the shadows still look weird, but they look better on the patches 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. These both patches need more VRAM than the 4th patch but your system is not bad at all so I do not think that this will be a problem.
