i tell you, it's a terrible pc port, in games like black ops 2, spec ops the line, resident evil 6 i get 150 fps (and their system requirements are higher than gta iv), I also run far cry 5 on high settings (something even on ultra) at50fps

High settings at 60 FPS , the RAM and CPU are more than enough for this game , the GPU should be just fine.
