I loaded GTA IV a few minutes ago, and the graphics were really crappy.. So I went to change them. It said there is only 300MB avalible. I have an NVIDIA 260GTX (SLI?) 1GB..
Anyone know whats wrong?? :bashhead:

EDIT: I also have a 9600M 512MB in battery mode, but im in AC mode
PC: my old Alienware M17x. My new one dosent have GTA IV

I told you Alienware sucks balls.

Try putting this on your GTA IV shortcut(the target line).Right click, properties, and find where it says target.Make a space, and add :

-norestrictions -nomemrestrict

That makes the game stutter as the restrictions go over the limit and even if you have 8GB of RAM it can't hold it so it stutters.

:thumbsdown: No. It was a vista fuck up. It disabled the card. I got it working now, though,

Glad you got it working.

Just for note, a GTX 260 (whether the old 192 core or the new 216 core version) has 896MB VRAM, not 1GB. Also, GTA IV will not the memory you get from SLI. If you have 2x260s, you'll still see 896MB Ram.

As to why it would say 3xxMB for a GTX 260 I have no clue, but when you say 'Vista' I'm sure you've found the problem. :hurrhurr:
