Dude this is too much. Remove all commandlines and only write these-

 

-norestrictions

-nomemrestrict

-availablevidmem 16.0

 

Hope this helps :^:

I had lived this problem on a Win7. My pc was really good to be playing the game on High or Very High settings but as far as I found on the internet there was a optimization problem on the game. So not your PC's fault. I was exposed to lag on every 10-15 seconds for no reason. No matter what I tried it didn't work. Another reason that the game could be booting on you intel gpu so if you have an option to start the game with the amd gpu (on an nVidia gpu you can right click to an .exe file and run the program with the nvidia gpu instead of the intel one) try it.

Man I've never had a radeon card. So I can't say anything but you may find something in catalyst control center (right click on desktop)

Try playing with Lowest Settings. And also, Try setting Texture Quality to Tril-Linear or Bi-Linear.

Are there many processes running alongside the game? And how much RAM do you have free to use actually?

As I said there was an unblockable lag caused by the severe optimization. I couldnt get rid of it on my last PC (was a laptop actually) whatever I tried. try 1.0.4.0 if you are using 1.0.7.0

And also, reduce your in-game resolution to 1024x768 or even 800x600 to gain a bit more frames.

If you have a steam copy: uninstall the game from your drive and before that right click on the game on steam and turn auto update off. re-install the game. Then download a 1.0.4.0 patch and install it. But on 1.0.4.0 you can't play multiplayer as it is not the latest version of the game. Don't update the game when installed again. Download patch 1.0.4.0, (http://www.thegtaplace.com/downloads/f4249-gta-iv-pc-patch-v1040) install it on vanilla game.

It will run. But about GTA IV... reinstall the game and apply Patch 1.0.4.0 again. You screwed something and now your Launcher is missing.

Man... you processor can outrun 2 Core 2 Duo processors with high frequency (say 2.93 GHz each). Just a lower frequency doesn't mean its crappy enough that other CPU can beat it. Man, its i3! i3!!
