GTA IV Graphics settigs

Posted 31 March 2009 - 11:09 AM

My Pc is

Intel Core2 duo E6750 2.55GHZ
DG33FB Motherboard
4 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9800GTX+ 512MB
Windows XP sp3


I think my PC is enough to run GTA IV at high end-graphics but when i play the game either the graphic quality is not good (can see jagged edges) or sometimes the game also runs slow. My GTA IV game graphics settings are

Resoultion 1400x900 (60Hrtz)
Render High
Texture Normal
Car Density 30
Shadow density 2
View Distance 5
Distance Detail 90


Also please recommend me graphics settings that will optimize the gameplay. Secondly I do not understand what the render means. Any help would be appreciated. Thans in advance ;)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You can force AA through your video card. GTA IV is still jaggy though.

As for settings:
Shadow: 0 (You really won't see a difference)
View: 25
Detail: 25

and see how that goes.

No idea since i don't work at R* Toronto, but I imagine the quality at which it renders the game. Medium/high you probably won't see a difference between them.

Buy a 360 or PS3 - it is cheaper in the long run - and you won't have to post your PC specs every post either.

That dosnt defeat PC... PC's are still FTW in gaming and will never die :)

Try setting every thing to low and set them up to your graphics are to where you want them + proformance.
