Hello I have an nvidia geforce 6100 nforce 405 graphics card. I updated the drives plus the motherboards. I used ntune it said forceware detected but it didnt have that little arrow pointing down for me to overclock it. Im not quite sure but I believe I have an intergrated graphics card and all I want to do is just play gta4. When I start gta4 it starts to bog down like crazy. I seen videos of the nvidia geforce 6100 and it runs smoothly do you guys have any ideas on how i can overclock my graphics or atleast get gta4 runnign smoothly. Please and ty :)

Hi exgardon,

Please download and run SysSpec. Run the file > click edit > click copy to clipboard and then paste it with your reply.

Also please post the make and model of the PC.

Your PC doesn't meet the minimum specifications required to run the game so that's probably why it's running very poorly.

Minimum specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4 GHz
1.0 GB (Windows XP) 1.5 GB (Windows Vista)
16 GB of free space
256 MB Nvidia 7900 / 256 MB ATI X1900
100% DirectX 9.0c compliant card
Internet connection required for activation and multiplayer
