What does the American Dream mean today?
For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.
For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

Yes because i can play at lowest settings 1280x1024 @64-69 and i dont really know if your cpu can handle at 60 fps, but why you want to play @60fps?

you can max this game with your cpu, and i recomend you to buy at least a quad core to play this game and maybe gta v because gta 4 is very cpu/gpu intensive.

If it is a pirated version and you didn't install correctly maybe this is the reason. A friend of mine had a similar problem. But perhaps it is something else.

Thank you guys, i don't believe that is processor, it's pretty good.
