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.

I doubt it, I can't even play on minimum(With gfx tweaks that aren't in the gfx menu) and I barely get 30FPS, as low as 15FPS in some areas.

I have all gold ticks, yet when I run minimum I barely get 30FPS, I know optimization is bad… but DAYUM, is there any graphics tweaks that I can change that aren't in the graphics menu that can help?

Your problem is your GFX try an 260x-270x it's much more better than 240,the 240 series are the old HD6570-HD6670 wich are not good enough to run it well

I'm pretty sure that's your CPU causing those problems, upgrade that to something more suitable for your GPU and you should have better performance. I go on medium with no shadows and the rest on low/off and get about 30FPS and I use Razer Game Booster also which boosts from 30 to 40 and helps with the load times, you don't need that if you upgrade the CPU though. :)
