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.

his game is widely regarded as the worst optimized game in all of history. Even a GTX 590 struggles to maintain good fps.

If i'm correct that's about right, this game is horribly optimized and lags even on higher end computers.

I suppose you're new to PC gaming and hardware… This game is widely regarded as the worst optimized game in all of history. Even a GTX 590 struggles to maintain good fps.

Your rig is fine, don't worry ;)
As for the lag on your PS3, it's an aging console, so maybe the hardware and/ or OS is just nearing its limits…

Well some of those games require a bit more CPU power, but your GPU is a good match. You could always upgrade to an 1155 i5, if you are able to find the money. You will see an improvement and a more stable fps rate overall, but just in those particular games. All others won't change much. But I guess it would be worth it, if these are your favorite games :)

They won't be very good. Probably around 30. You'll want to play on high with sliders set to around 40-50.

Do you mean while recording? You should get relatively smooth fps on high, but you may want to lower your settings to medium while recording.

Try Medium with some settings lowered and if you get lag don't worry everyone does :) but if it is continuous lag try low settings.
