Sometimes I don't even make it to 5 mins, sometimes this happens after 1-2 mins!
Basically what happens is the game just goes down to 1-2 FPS. Just bang, 1-2 fps, won't fix itself. Alt+F4 neccesary.
Now, i've tried the commandline shit. It increased my available memory from ~400 to ~1000. I was shocked at this. I ran a couple of benchmarks at medium, 12fps or so. I ran a couple on low, 20fps or so.
These are the results from no commandline and commandline, respectively.

So adding the command line did little in the overall test.
I think my 8600GT may be causing the problem. I created a timeline of temperatures doing the benchmark and into the game.
55C - Idle, Desktop
61C - Game loading (pre-benchmark)
63C - Same as above
64C - Same as above
64C - Benchmark start
64C - Mainly the whole benchmark
65C - Looking at the harbour behind Niko's house
66C - As above
61C - FPS drop actually dropped the temperature.

I saw the graphics card running at 73C while I was playing earlier on, though.
So, what could be causing my FPS to murder itself over and not fix itself?



Another problem, how do I stop the game from reverting back to "Auto Configure" for the graphics options every time the game starts?


Any help is appreciated!! Thanks.

1. Get a new graphics card

2. Stop wasting 5 mins measuring the temperature

3.Get a new pc - vista

4. How are you measuring the temperature?

5. Your pc cant take it. Sorry.

No not really....

Then why did you join this forum?

And everyone on this forum knows I can think up hundreds of reasons as to why my live is better than yours:
1. I have a PC that can take GTA4.
2. I dont live at my parents
3. Im getting married

Case closed here, but theres a lot more I could say thank you
GiacJr
Why do you assume that I live with my parents? Who the fuck cares if you're getting married, your E-Penis is larger than you can handle, stop fucking trolling me.

No, im defending myself. You started trolling if I recall as I tried to help you. I assume you live with your parents cause you act like it.
