Wow, just wow. This game is a mess! After wading through Rockstar social club and Games for Windows Live just to get into the damn game, the graphics bug out on me. Audio is still there, but just a black screen with the minimap. Trying to adjust the graphics and the mouse blinks all over the screen. Guess it's time to re-install my graphics drivers AGAIN. I doubt they are the problem though.
EDIT: Ok I reinstalled my drivers and it's working now. But man, this thing runs like an fat sloth. I knew this was a big problem with this game but figured my 5870 would laugh this game off like everything else. It does not. It crawls. This is worse than Crysis.
On a 5870 I wouldn't have draw distance or detail distance at higher than 50 (you want to leave a buffer of about 100 MBs of VRAM). I would keep shadows on low or medium (high if really care about them being well defined and black). Night shadows I would just turn off completely. They are rarely noticed in game and right now sucks framerates from any card once turned on.
I'm going to have to push my little brother at getting this. $7.50...man Steam had that a few months back, but it was only for one day.

Well I think the patch failed because I don't have .NET framework installed or up to the latest version. I don't have it because some time ago, my copy of Windows 7 stopped passing WGA checks thus stopped receiving updates. I'm hoping that it started failing when I threw in my 5850 and hopefully I can a hold of some one at MS to fix this crap without doing a format but that's probably the path of least resistance. Freaking WGA.
