i think it's your processor. you need a faster processor to play
that game.

you need at least a pentium 4 D (dual core) and 2 gigs of ram to
play. If it is a regular pentium you are screwed and might as well
get a new computer, if it is a Dual core or quad core version, you
can get another gb of ram and play. Your graphics card should
be fine.
You should always check the minimum system requirements to
make sure your system will run a game, especially since you
have ancient hardware.

-Intel i7 Bloomfield 2.66Ghz Quad Core
-6GB OCZ Gold DDR3
-XFX Radeon 4890 1GB
-150GB Velocirapter Boot
-1TB WD Caviar Black x2 Storage
-650W Corsair 650TX
-Thermaltake Element S

Omg O.O recommended system requirements are the following:
p4, 512 mbyte ram, 128 mbyte video card... It doesn't matter if i
play on minimal settings, 640*480, or maxed out 1440*900, it's
the same... And i used to play this game two years ago too,
when i had the same spec, except the video card, that was a
128 mbyte one. And it used to run perfect. But now it doesn't,
thou' i have a better v-card. =(

Thanks for the replies, anyway ^^

Oh, i'm so sorry I was checking GTA IV... How do other
games play? If you do not have other games to check, then
do this, Check Device Manager (you should be able to search
this when the start button menu is popped up). Check display
devices and make sure your graphics card shows up and is
working properly. If it is, check all other drivers from device
manager to see if any of them aren't working or don't exist.
The only other thing I can think of is your video card is so
new (or at least new relative to the game) the game is not
recognizing and utilizing the graphics card properly. What is
your new graphics card?

-6GB OCZ Gold DDR3
-XFX Radeon 4890 1GB
-150GB Velocirapter Boot
-1TB WD Caviar Black x2 Storage

Your PSU is probably too weak for your graphics card. That's what happened with my old system. Getting a more powerful one should fix it.
