Personally i think its a great game, runs fine on my system at 1920x1200, havent has a single crash, error or any gfx corruption of any kind so far .... just lacking some AA!

Anybody managed to find a way to force AA yet?

is nobody having trouble with crashes?
my PC is rebooting after 5-10 minutes ingame, i can't figure out where the problem is.
here my system spec:

-INTEL core2quad q9450
-INTEL DX48BT2 board
-ATI sapphire hd 4870 512mb
-4GB ddr3 1066mhz RAM
-WINDOWS XP 32bit

the game is running fine, no grapgic bugs or low fps. no matter on what settings i play (even on everything low and 800x600) my PC suddenly reboots after about 10 minutes. i'm sure there is no problem with my pc. (overheating or driver issues). here's a log from one of my becnhmarks:

can you tell me why the hell GTA thinks i'm running a P3 xeon? ~~

i'd be so grateful if anybody can help me fixing the crashes!

here my system spec:
Are you pushing the graphics settings beyond the cap at all? I know R* has said the game will freeze or shut down if you run it above the resource cap.

Hello I do not normaly post on forums but seeing as many people are having the same probs as me I thought I would post the new nvidia beta drivers for gta 4 only work if you have a series 7 card or above http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_gtaiv_downloads.html ... Also if people are interested here is the link for vista service pack 2 beta http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en I hope this helps people. I have not tried the new drivers as yet but ill let you all know how they perform as soon as I ave tested them.
