I purchased GTA V on PC a couple weeks ago but have been unable to play the game due to the massive amount of stuttering that occurs after running the game for more than five minutes or so. I've tried every fix imaginable that I could find, from editing the page file of my PC to editing settings in the NVIDIA control panel but sadly nothing has worked. Rockstar customer support has been of absolutely no help and none of the patches that have been released for GTA V have done anything to improve my game performance. Also I am updated to the latest drivers for my graphics card.
I meet the minimum requirements for the game and even tried turning every single graphical setting down to the absolute lowest (Even though the game's recommended settings for me had almost everything on high or very high) but that didn't help one bit. I'm desperate for help and any possible solutions to this unplayable stuttering would be appreciated. I read some people stating that GTA V really needs 8GB of RAM and not 4 but in that case why would Rockstar list 4GB for the minimum RAM requirement? I read other people saying the game has a memory leak but if that was the case then surely Rockstar would have done something by now? I don't know really, but hopefully you all can help :D.
CPU: AMD FX 8320 3.5GHZ
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 760
NOTE: I bought the game via Rockstar's site, I don't have it on Steam.
