Hey guys! I've recently got myself a new ASUS desktop with GTX970 onboard and Windows 10 preinstalled. The problem is that now I'm experiencing some really strange texture artifacts in GTA IV I've never had before on my older systems (see screens below). I've also installed the latest patch 1.0.8.0, cause I've heard that it's the only way to make the game run on Win 10. The game starts fine and there are no problems at all for the first 2-3 minites, but after that the textures suddenly go all over the place to the state that it becomes totally unplayable. The system came with all drivers preinstalled (NVIDIA 353.24) and, considering that GTA IV is an old game, I don't think that updating them would help. It should be noted though that the problem only affects textures, the framerate is silky smooth 60 fps with all settings maxed out. Has anyone experienced the same issue? I did't manage to find a similar thread on this forum. Any help will be much appreciated!

Here are some screens (sorry for external links, I couldn't find a way to post them directly):

Is the graphics card new, or used?

Everything is new - it's a factory assembled PC, so I didn't buy all the hardware separately. And, as it always happens, GTA IV is the only game I have this sort of problem with. Any ideas?

WOW, man, I can't thank you enough! Thanks so much! I did that and all the artifacts're gone now! The latest patch must've been glitched or something. Thanks again!
