GTA4 lag with a good config

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've just bought the gold edition of GTA4 which include all the GTA4 titles :-)

 

I need your help because the game lag very much and as you can see bellow, my computer should easily support the game.

 

I've already tried the "-memrestrict" solution. It doesn't change anything.

 

Please consider these points :

*All my drivers are updated

*I've installed the latest patch for GTA4

 

In addition, I've a good new for you, I've already found a way to play correctly but as you will see, it's not possible to use this solution to play during hours ;-)

 

When I record the screen (with sound) with fraps, the game lag no more ! When I stop to record the game, it restarts to lag (slow-fast-slow-fast). Please do not tell me to set down the graphics details because I've already tried this and the game still lag the same (or I must play in 800*600 with ALL settings in the minimum).

 

You can check this on this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9viQ6EvmnWc

 

In my opinion, the origin of the problem comes from the processor.

 

Let me know what I could do to enjoy my 3 games and do not hesitate to ask me more details if you need ;-)

 

If I find the solution, I'll post it in the comment.

 

A big thanks for the time you will take to help me :-)

Your graphics card is severely bottlenecking your PC. Radeon 5570 was designed for office computers, not for gaming.

Thank you very much for your answers.

 

But can you explain me why the game lag no more when I record with fraps ?

 

And even if I play in 1024*768, the game lag exactly the same.

He renderred the video in the replay editor. You can export it even if you have a geforce 8200 and it'd come out looking smooth. The matter of fact is that it's not, whatsoever.

Do not believe these YouTube videos, theres millions of videos of people claiming to run games maxed out with poor hardware. My 5770 (2 levels above your card) runs the game "acceptably". You cannot play with a 5570, if you want good graphics and a decent framerate.
