You PC does not meet the base to run GTA.

Your graphics card is the problem as it wont run the game, as there just isn't enough power which is why the game is running frame by frame.

You will need to on a minimum upgrade your graphics card. I'm not great with hardware recommendation's so if you ask around other people may be able to suggest something to you for upgrade.
