No doubt about it, the pc version performs horribly. and the game itself has taken a step back from San andreas imo.

I did however manage to get good framerates at decent graphical settings when I for other reasons upgraded to an I7 with a g285 gpu and 6 gig of ram, granted gtaIV is a 32bit program so not much point in that.

It's a fine game if you get it to run ok, and that is a big if, a top of the line gpu and a quad core cpu is barely enough to reach recommended performance. (any other reason than bad porting is bullshit) on top of that the game requires both steam if you get it via valve, rockstar social club, and uses windows live.
on top of all that the game realy needs an ok controll pad, but the game is coded to only work with the xbx360 windows controller.. yea there is an emulator out for that..

bottom line, I cant recommend this game for the pc pure and simple. not worth the hasle.
Yes, I abuse grammar by opening my mouth.
