My System Specs

Default trying to get the most out of GTA4 with i5-2500K OCing

its working with my 6950 crossfire, with v-sync on they sit at 50% usage pretty much, and the fps are not really any better than I remember with a single 6950 with my x4 955

I still get the drops down to 30fps in places, and 40s and 50s aren't uncommon.

I have it maxed @1080p with 30view dist/ 30detail dis/ 70 traffic /16 shadow

my i5-2500k was @4.5 with 1.335 and lvl5 LLC, would I see much improvement if I tried to hit 4.8, or even 5GHz?

I have a silver arrow and temps have been great, don't know if I can run 5 stable, but 4.7 works, any point to try for 5GHz for gta4 ?

I don't know if you can hit 5ghz but you'll certainly benefit from it in GTAIV there's no other game that comes to mind that is so CPU bound. My experience with the game makes me believe you will even see slight increases in performance with each 100mhz increase.
