my first setup was

pentium D dual core @3.0ghz
4 gigs of ram
8600GTs 256Mb lol

now this

im upgrading to a gtx 260 with the evga step up program the 260 was $244 but after the $138 that i payed for my 9800Gt gets taken off of the 260 price its like $113 so i figure y not!

i submitted my request to EVGA to step up a few days ago they havent gotten back to me yet :'(


I'm having trouble with my save file, I beat this game and copied my safe file from
C:\Users\Trivium Nate\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games to my 2nd drive where i keep all my game stuff,
you need to copy the live folder too from microsoft folder in app data to get back to your saves

The new patch just broke my game completely. Won't load a saved game, the benchmark, or start a new game at all. Just crashes to desktop. Never had a problem before.

If you have the Steam version make sure you install the seperate patch and then verify your cache... there was a known issue.

I guess uninstall and reinstall is the next option.
