    GTA IV is coded pretty badly, the game hates having more then one card and no matter if you can play the game on high it still hiccups at times.

    Bull Shit


    GTA4 was coded for the 360 and then for the PS3, and the 360 was moved over to the PC, alot of dipshits just have to understand that Rock* was tired of getting the usual flack about graphics quality, so they went to the other extreme, and I for one am glad.


    Finally a game with good graphics, and a long, long, long gameplay and story that keeps you involved. Fuck Crysis, GTA4 is the shit.

    As a person who has had the game for PS3 and PC, the PS3 version runs way better then the PC one. As for looks it depends, the PC version still has no AA and for people like me, i have to run it at 800x600 and it still hiccups, dont you see a problem with that?

    So the other extreme was to have it run like a POS and have them think to themselves 'well at least it looks nice',awesome.

    The story is fantastic, and the gameplay is nice, the performance is shit and until its fixed its still the inferior version of the game.

    LOL at gta4 on PS3. It was painful to watch the constant 20 fps. It does take a quad core to run worth a shit on PC, but at least the frame rate was smooth and higher. Plus the added bonus of resolution and draw distance that didn't make it look like a ps2 game.

    smart business move by nvidia. you cant let the competition get all the press. ill be buying on of these g300 cards mainly because i have an nforce sli chipset on my motherboard. obviously i could still run an amd card on the board, but then i would just be spending money on a card that i cant add on to with the board that i already own!

    Eh, I have to disagree. Sure the graphics on GTAIV were better than the previous titles, but the best textures in the world don't help with immersion if they are being drawn on the building as you walk up to it...

    As for the gameplay, GTA always has fun gameplay, the problem I had with GTAIV was this horrible thing called Games for Windows Live. I didn't play the game for about a month, then I go back, only to discover I can't load any of my saves. After investigation, I find that the files are still there, but I can't load them, because GFWL doesn't view those saves as mine (belonging to my account), and God forbid I play a saved game that isn't mine.... cause that would mean control over the product I own. No, can't have that...

    Bugs the crap out of me. :p With all the graphical glitches it has. I can think of many games that I would peg as "having nicer graphics". So really the gameplay was the only redeeming feature for me. That is why if the next GTA game involves Games for Windows Live, I will not be touching it...

    even when I had my core i7 pc whenever something exploded in gta4, fps went down to a crawl almost

    is it horribly coded, I don't know, but does it run good on modern hardware, I will let you decide but I say no, as for the people who say its for future hardware, I say, well, there are games out there that are like 8 years old that you can't max with a 4870 and if GTA4 is like this, . . . . .

    Don't even bother with the "GTA IV is/isn't optimized" discussion - it will derail this thread. Plus its been beaten to death and then some in almost every GTA IV thread :laugh:

    I think it would be easier to slap in another card vs getting these new ones. Even with xfire or sli perf loss, it'll be faster than the new cards.

    Like i said a month ago NVIDIA already has early engineering samples of their new GPUS....The Demos will prove that to all those who said that we wouldnt see NVIDIA cards with DX11 before January.

    Like every hard launch, it's all about the e-penis, or e-boobs if you're a girl. Generally never makes sense to buy the flagship graphic card because your bang for the buck card is what makes sense if you are like most mortals...strapped for cash. That's why I still have a 9600 GT.

    Still, if someone gives me a few hundred bucks, I might get something new. If not, I will gawk at the cards like it's fresh pr0n.

    Maybe for you benchmarkers it will, but gaming wise it will still own for a long time.:)

    That's not a bad way of doing things at all.

    I agree with u nk, ATI as far as rumors go have 1200-1600sp's and 32 rops, now that alone is a major improvement, the question is how will the cards handle double the rops

    Make you wait a couple of more months (till it's released), and then some more (till they're adequately in stock/available). Go with (p)reviews, never fall for demos.
