Hello, it is clearly your processor, I have the same processor and it will not be an easy thing to fix. As for purchasing Random Access Memory, that won't help you any, all RAM does is allot a certain amount of megabytes for GTA 4 to squeeze into and be accessed from, as RAM is a lot faster than your HDD. Purchasing more ram won't do anything as GTA 4 only takes up 1.5 gigs most of the time at lowest settings. Hopefully your motherboard is an AM2 slot, in that case, go purchase an AMD Athlon processor, there is a 2.3 Dual Core out for about 60 dollars right now.
