Missing Textures, Stuttering & Others

GARGLE DAMN IT! I had it all written down and did a stupid mistake and clicked "back".

 

Here's the Cliff Notes version regarding my problem. I'm getting severe stuttering, textures keep disappearing the more crowded the area gets (like a highway or downtown traffic), I've even seen cabs disappear into the streets! I tried to do a street race with Frankling but couldn't get it to work as most of the racers only appear when I accidentally shot one of the two racers that did show up, THEN the rest would materialize! I don't know my fps but it must have been horrible.

 

Before someone pipes up and says "Check out problem #4!", I did and it did nothing. I ran the game with the latest drivers and it did nothing, I updated it with the latest beta drivers and it only gave me an omega bummer. I uninstalled all of the video card drivers, rebooted the computer, installed the latest beta drivers, rebooted the computer again and HALLELLUJAH! It gave me a whopping 0 friggin percent improvement! I was sooooo ecstatic that I wanted to take a sledgehammer to the monitor. I lowered every setting in the game, lowered the resolution, reduced as much GPU memory usage as possible, boosted the GTA5.exe's priority to high and it only brought me low.

 

Nothing is working, yet my computer should easily be able to play the game even at "normal" settings. What gives?

 

Here are my specs:

Processor Intel® Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB
Total Physical Memory 7.95 GB
Available Physical Memory 4.91 GB
Total Virtual Memory 15.0 GB
Available Virtual Memory 11.1 GB
Page File Space 7.00 GB
AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series 2GB (I believe it is a 7820 but I am not sure)

Sounds like it might be a graphics card problem, if you haven't done any maintenance for a fair bit you could try clearing dust out or downloading Speccy and seeing how hot your graphics card gets.

The card temp is around 88F or 31C.

 

But I just noticed that the CPU temp is around 190F. Going to have to clean it out then.

 

Here's a more detailed info. Temps are in Metric.

Oh yes, your CPU is far too hot!

 

Cleaning the heatsink/fan is a good idea, if that doesn't work you may have to reapply thermal past for the fan.

Ok, I am typing this from my tablet. I opened up my tower and there was a lot of dust. Worse was that the cooling block and CPU fan had disconnected itself from the CPU. I'm out of thermal paste and will have to wait until tomorrow to get more. I'm hoping this will do the trick.

 

Oh and I found out that my video card is an AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB not a 7820. Any difference between a 7850 and 7870?

Yeah, your CPU basically isn't going to function properly like that, so it should solve your problem.

 

And uh...with differences, do you mean between a 7850 and a 7820? Or 7850 and 7870?

Gotcha, so the 7870 is quite a bit better than the 7850, but not by a very large amount; still, if no price was involved, 7870 is the clearly better choice.

I cleaned out the tower and reapplied the thermal paste to the CPU and fan\block. Temperature dropped to 120F. Gameplay was much better except the stuttering issue is still present but not as rage inducing as before. Textures still disappear but not very often. Overall, better performance but not really good enough.
