    Hi Guys,
    I'm currently running GTA 4 on my 2.4Ghz core i5 system under BootCamp with XP SP3. It seems to run okay, however I am only getting around 25 fps with low-medium settings and the textures aren't the best. Does this seem normal?

    Make sure the game is running with the latest patch, or at least 1.5 i think it is. Fixed the problem for me :)

    Also make sure you have the latest video drivers from here.

    I have the same setup with the latest graphic drivers and GTA IV looks quite bad :(

    Notebook check manages to get around 35fps with medium settings on the macbook pro, however it could be a 15 inch with lower resolution.

    Other than that, all I can think of is drivers, and that GTA4 doesn't do as well under directx 9-- xp only goes up to directx 9 right?
