Buy more ram
Can’t I just download it
Absolutely! You can download more ram [here](https://downloadmoreram.com/)
I can't tell if that's an actual website or not
download and click on more info
Bravo sir that was the greatest RR I’ve seen
Is that a rickroll
*I’m sorry little one* I wish I could give u an award but I don’t have one
Thank you so much! I just downloaded 32 gigs of ram to my I phone for FREE!
You can’t download a ram, stupid
true, you can only download multiple

your ram is your problem
Can you believe the Xbox 360 somehow ran this game on 512 *Megabytes*?
And the PS3 had half of that. As much as I shit on this game, I am genuinely impressed how well they got it to run.
Fun fact: The reason why some games needs a lot of RAM is because of textures etc. VRAM is used to store the information for the characters itself as in what is on your screen, while RAM is used to store information of what textures to use etc. (Other than the whole map - of it's big enough to store all of it, the game data etc.)
This is one of the reason why some games are big. Mainly graphics sizes. To prove this, tryinf to download games with HD textures but without the HD textures. Then redownload the HD textures. It'll take up anything from a few hundred MBs to a 10s of GBs.
This is why old consoles are able to run AAA games with small amounts of RAM. They have shit graphics. (Not shitting on consoles, it's just how they work). Then they have the capped fps back then, so they dont need the life quality improvements higher RAM capacity can do.
Of course, this is also neglecting the tremendous amount of background processes PCs have. Which lowers the RAM usage more. Hence, 256MB.
Impressive tbh. But when you're on console, you're not aiming for the best graphics, I dont at least, I just buy consoles to play games for fun for "cheap". My PC is what I use for the flexing - flexing the games graphics. Not my rig. One of the games I love flexing is RDR2 haha. Bless that game.
But it ran at 720p and had less graphics. I’m impressed but they ported it right.
It looks like an Audi actually
Sir, it’s been a Fiat-Chrysler ever since the acquisition
It is the R8 ib
Mf has a Boeing 747 plane engine as a cooling fan on his pc
You have crazy low ram, without putting together a new computer for years I can’t ballpark your other gear but I’m betting it’s your potato pc (no offense)
Edit : if you have extra slots for ram USE THEM, it’s really not *that* expensive and helps immensely
Load GTA V and then Ctr+alt+del to open task manager and take a screen shot and post the results in the comments. This will tell us what’s going on
AMD Ryzen 5 3550H,
NVidia GeForce 1650,
4 Gb ram? There is your issue bud
Even with 8 i couldnt play gta 16 min if u want more than med settings
I run with high 8gb of memory ram, I5 first gen and a 1650 4gb with very hight graphics and no breaks
To be fair i do have a lot of other apps open (discord spotify and youtube) but still i found a very big improvement coming from 8 to 16 gb (8 is still very much playable tho). Also have i5 but 7 gen and 1050ti
not really. I play max with 8GB 2666mhz ram and it runs without any stutters
Mhh idk i almost couldnt play with my 8 due to the stutters. Still probably because I have a lot of background tasks eating ram
How did the PS3 run this game with 512 mb of ram?
It didn't have a heavy, bloated OS running underneath.
The whole system (it’s a computer but saying computer confuses people) was specifically built for gaming, the os was built for gaming, the game was coded to work well with the OS, and the game was designed to work well with the hardware.
Exactly, A.K.A. optimized
Ah back when rockstar gave a shit.
Heavilly optimised for one single system spec. Also worse graphics and different code. Making stuff available for systems with almost infinite combinations of parts is hard and costs performance
Not really, I have 8gb and I played it on high with no problems
My i3 + gtx950 + 8Gb did just fine on high-med mix
I run with a 1050 (2gb), i7-7700hq, and 8gb ram and it runs ok on high graphics
Maybe close some apps?,
I can run games that literally require 8GB on my 4GB laptop. Admittedly sacrificing antialiasing but it still works, even with not too bad settings
I've got 16gb and i still feel like it's not enough
4gb of ram in today's world = eww
Might be a Ram situation you should be able to turn down the settings and it will get smoother but you might need to slap a new stick of ram in to give it alittle more help. The card should be fine for what your running but the ram at 4 gb is the minimum required for gta
I thought as much. I tried refunding but the playtime exceeded over 2 hours
man with a decent pc like yours ,you NEED atleast 8 or even 16 RAM to make use of the other hardware you paid for
Yeah I'd go up to 8GB when you can, if not 16GB.
Well you can get ram pretty inexpensive
yeah, Ram would be the first thing I'd try:
4GB was plenty back when I installed Windows XP at work.
8GB was plenty back when I moved everyone to Windows 7
16GB seems to be the current "plenty" amount, and all we do here is office stuff. I imagine that gaming is more demanding.
Only game I know that recommends 32gb is flight simulator 2020 but for 99% of modern games 16 is plenty
if you’re in the uk, 16gb ram is like 40-50 so save up and buy more ram
next time you can run [this site](https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri) on your pc to check if it can handle the game (it will download a software to your pc to check your specs for you)
Your ram is bottlenecking your setup.
Oh that’s tough. Always remember before buying a game to look at the minimum and recommend specs for it. The only thing you can do now is get more ram
M8, no hate, but you deadass hardly have enough RAM to run windows let alone run RAM hungry games.
Idk just turn your graphics down a bit or something. There is something you are using that your PC can’t handle so lower a couple settings to see if that works
That's the lowest it can get. Everything is in normal.
Go straight to 16gb ram. Mine cost under $100, can run max settings without many issues
There's a setting something like framerate ratio, try turning that down
You need like 16 gigs of ram for the best performance
They recommend 8gb RAM. 4 is min with a lot of concessions.
Get yourself at least 8 gigs AT LEAST
What asshole sold you such a gimped laptop?
Most likely heating issue. I'm playing on a Ryzen 5 2500U igpu and I had this problem. It got solved after I added a cooling pad.
Edit: I didn't notice your RAM. Dude, 4GB RAM is extremely Low. Upgrade the RAM. Add another 4GB RAM to make it dual channel and it will run perfectly
I’m not really a pc guy but I generally understand bottlenecks and know 4gb of ram is too little, how much RAM would he have to have before another part of his setup is bottlenecking him?
There won't be any considerable bottleneck after he upgrades his RAM to Dual Channel 8GB or 16GB.
So would 32gb of ram cause a bottleneck elsewhere?
Nah, 64bit processors can access Terabytes of RAM. Also, a CPU uses only as much as RAM as it needs.
jesus christ 4gb? I didn’t even know you could get ram in sizes smaller than 8 but also have a Ryzen 5 and 1650- upgrade to 8 gigs minimum and make sure it’s DDR4, your problem would make even more sense if it was 4 gigs of DDR3
This! I have 8gb and it stutters half as bad. I need more but hey-ho. Try to buy 2 sticks at once to save having to find two of the same
you just answered your own question
I have everything exactly the same except for RAM (I have 16GB) and get constant 60fps in the highest settings in 1080p. The issue is probably ram but also check the temperature of the cpu. My tended to throttle because of bad thermal paste and caused frame drop.
Ur single channle and low ram mate.
Throw some more RAM in your PC and your problems will be fixed.
my friend has 4tb and ot works well for him
4tb of RAM...? Tell us more.
my bad ment gb
You need 16, I had the same lag playing on 8gb and it completely vanished when I got 16
thank god youre not one of those people that has specs like that and then spends $1500 on a 30xx series gpu 🥸🥸🥸🥸
I have less stutters then you and I'm using an Intel core 2 duo e8400 with a ddr4 2gb gt 1030 and 8gb of ram
It's the RAM big time. Purchase a set of 16 and you'll be set, if you intend to get into some hobbies (Photography, editing, programming, digital art, etc) I've heard 32 would be recommended. I personally have 24 and can run everything I want to without any problem.
Have you tried lowering the frame rate? I know FPS really affects the way things show up in the game. Not just textures but the way things open and close.
DAM, My phone has more RAM
**B R U H**
Go for 12 min. An 8 + 4 will do.
You need more RAM. Lower down the graphics and resolution
Do you by any chance have the Asus tuf fx505DT-BQ501T? If so, you have to plug in the adapter and turn turbo mode on. Then it will run smoother
Yes, that's my laptop. It's already plugged in, as it's evident by the loud fans in the background
Oh, that's quite weird. I had that laptop for a while and the only thing I did when the problem still occured, was restarting it 2 times, but you probably already did that. Though, it mustn't be nice !
Edit: Oh, and to add: the RAM on your computer should be 8 GB, not 4 GB. Only the VRAM (of the GTX 1650) is 4GB
The problem is your 4GB of ram. 8GB should be enough but i'd go for 16 personally.
To hight setting
4g of run is okey for Light application like minceraft..but gtav need more ram... for me 8GB is the less you need to play !
Try to add more
Fix the low RAM bottlenecking the rest of your computer.
Literally had the same problem although had an 8gb stick. Fixed it by getting an ssd, although u just need more ram, atleast get 8gb and you'll be good since you have a good CPU.
Also not good to run in single channel
The CPU and GPU are fine but 4gb RAM is too little. Just buy another 4gb stick, that will improve a LOT. (4gb Ram doesnt even cost that much)
How do you exist with 4 gb ram
A friend had the same issue, its your ram, you need more
bros pc is a plane engine 😭
My friend had this issue with 8gb of RAM, so 4gb is definitely not gonna cut it.
You need more ram just like everyone else is saying. 8 Gb of dual channel minimum but I'd really look for 16 Gb. Dual channel will help your 1650, 4 Gb is creating a bottleneck. You will notice an improvement with everything you do on the PC just doing this, so don't think of it as a I only need this for GTA. What kind of hard drive is it installed on? If you don't have a SSD you should really upgrade.
- "I wanna see if there's a solution before resorting to upgrading my RAM or something"
Your PC requires ram to run whatever OS you have. Windows 10 - 1 Gb for 32 bit \ 2 Gb for 64 bit + Steam, Discord etc... GTA 5 requires 4 Gb minimum. 4-1 = 3 Game doesn't have enough ram to run.
Need more RAM. 16GB min. Check your laptop specs to see how many RAM slots you have, laptops usually have 1-2, that way you know if you need 1 or 2 sticks of ram.
If you don’t want to buy more ram, by the way, you can turn down graphics settings (video, antialiasing, etc) and close all unnecessary processes in task manager (macafee eats cpu for breakfast). Close all/most browser tabs and plug in your computer. I run bigger games with 4ram not too badly.
Bruh you playing on the Samsung smart fridge wtf
Expanded and enhanced
Low your graphic settings
Download more RAM
yes, buy a new pc
Turn on vsync in Nvidia control panel. Not in game.
There's multiple guides for it.
Ask Google for the way if you need it.
Dawg, about 8 years playin’ gta v and that shit never happened to me
Have you tried turning it of and on again?
Lower the graphics. If that doesn’t still solves, you need to buy new ram 🐏
the problem is not with the game,it's with your hardware.
4GB? Do you live in 2010, where that was an acceptable amount for the last time?
Get a better pc
Damn, I didn't expect this to blow up! Atleast I now know what to do. The minimum requirements tricked me haha
Don’t play on a potato? Everyone’s going on about the RAM issue because that’s your primary bottleneck. You need to see if your laptop has replaceable DIMMs and get a kit of higher capacity DDR4 SODIMMs, you owe that machine at least 16gb 3000MHz.
I wanna see if there's a solution before resorting to upgrading my RAM or something
RAM sticks are not even that expensive and if you want to play games on your PC you definitely want to upgrade from 4gb of RAM. Hell if you want to use PC to open chrome you want to upgrade your RAM. Trust the guy on the internet when I say upgrading from 4gb of RAM is going to help you in the future
GPU/CPU stuttering doesn't look like this, it's RAM. Hell, even PS4 has 8 GB of RAM. You can keep looking for a solution but like a lot of people pointed out, you need to upgrade RAM if you want to actually solve the issue permanently.
That's the thing though, when you only have 4GB of RAM, upgrading it will show a noticeable difference with just about everything that you do. Right now it seems like the cheapest, fastest, and easiest way to unleash higher performance by reducing the single greatest bottleneck that you have.
The next upgrade would be an SSD, as that will quickly become the next bottleneck. A good CPU and GPU don't mean anything if they are waiting for the data to be pulled from a disk.
You can try altering the game settings through file directory.there are youtube videos explaining the same
Don't do the fixed that require changing any game assets .it might affect the legality of the game, considering you brought a licensed product
Your PC simply can’t handle it
What resolution do you run at? With such little ram, if you're running at 1080p that's your issue. Technically 4gb ram is minimum requirements for GTA V, but if you have that little ram then either upgrade it or downgrade to 720p if you haven't already.
Lower resolution and then settings and try and see if it works better. But beyond that, you need more ram my dude, at least 8 gigs. I'd also recommend an SSD if you don't have one already.
Also - try looking up low spec configs online, they'll explain how to change settings from there to go even lower
More ram bro or if you don’t wanna do that try going into settings and put everything into the lowest setting.
You're gonna need the Expanded and Enhanced version my friend, much smoother
4gb ram? Not nearly enough. Close your google chrome in the background and lower all your settings.
Alternatively, upgrade your ram by buying another 4gb stick and plugging it in. I’ve never played gta on anything lower than 8gb ram and it works fine for me even on laptops (although to be fair my old laptop is on a 1660ti and my new one is on a 3050. My gaming rig is running a 3060 and 16gb ram so no issues there)
How did you get GTAV when you only have 4GB of ram?
I had the same problem but mine was lagging cos of my graphic card
Not inly ammount of ram,but also bandwith will incerase if you have more sticks which helps a lot
Dont cap the FPS to 60, let it variable.
Your windows 10 is no optimized well
Idk because I play GTA V on Xbox 360 from a digital copy and the only times in lags Is when I hit fruit stands on the side of the road.
You need to buy a little add-on... It's called RAM
I have this same issue but on my ps4 pro, no clue how to fix
Seems to be a kind of lag, but i think is putting all in low or medium idk.
RAM is maxing out.
I get the same lag in GTA when I have afk simulators open in the background eating up my RAM and vRAM.
i play gta with 4 gb and i like it
Seems perfectly fine to me!
it’s just apart of the game now. Enjoy!
turn down reflections and msaa and fxaa
preferably turn msaa off
Maybe you have less ram and a weak GPU or none. I had the same issue with 4gb graphic card but with 8 its better. Still I only play with very low graphics with even scaling turned down to 0.5x
Do you have a Dorito for a chip in that computer ?
Plug in charger even if your battery’s full
Yeah stop using that McDonald’s wifi
Download more RAMs
Looks like loading a reddit video
You need more ram my dude
4GB ram bro, come on 😭 scale it up
trying lowering your graphics in the advanced graphic settings, best to put the bar at green
Either buy more RAM or lower the graphics further (if you can)
Must be your laptop
If you have GeForce experience, disable Shadowplay
Stop downloading porn at the same time
Close yo Chrome homie.
Throw it in the trash
Turn down ur graphics or fix ur ram
You have to cut Franklin’s yee yee ass haircut
Nah I think its bugged cause of upcoming EnE DLC, I got 16gb rAm and this is happening with my game when I try to replay a mission for gold medal
Maybe you have to go to the lowest graphics.
i would you need at least 16
Rather you can upgrade your computer, or you can lower the graphics
You need more RAM buddy
Yes get a new pc
Ram seems to be main culprit, but you can try turning up the priority of GTAV from Control Panel or Task Manager to give it some more cpu power
i had exactly what you had lol all you need is more ram and that stuttering fixes itself
If ur playing offline turn off the wifi, it shld do the trick
get a better pc
Give the game your processing priority that should fix it
Do you live near an airfield? Sounds like a plane is taking off XD.
Not play GTA 5?
How many fps you have?
