Occasional stutter is enough for me to turn the settings down a notch.

As for other issues, I'm running like 30 processes in the background and every other game I have runs maxed, usually w/ some degree of AA with no stutter.

My System Specs


Someone over on the NCIX forums just posted this youtube video and I seriously laughed my ass off. So many things I mentioned in this thread are in this video and it's so funny the way they address the games problems. Check it out.

Thanks for the video Always, it was too funny.

This is my first GTA game. I always thought it was going to be boring but with the great story, and awesome voice acting I was really sucked in. And, wow, what a huge map to explore, and with nearly everything to interact with, the fun never stops.
