If you have a compatible system for running GTA 5, then you need to focus on choosing the best settings for the game. There are many aspects that you need to alter in order to get the best FPS (Frames Per Second) rate. According to Logical Increments, here is what you can do:

1. Ensure you are getting a steady rate of 60 FPS. If you are not getting this desired number, then you can try lowering your game settings.

2. You may have to compromise on the visuals if you want a good FPS rate.

3. If you want GTA 5 to have a good FPS rate with moderate visuals, you can change your settings as per the following recommendations by Logical Increments:

  • Population Density: Within 0 to 25%
  • Lower Grass Density to Normal
  • Post FX: Normal or High
  • Turn the MSAA off
