hey guys

recently i have been playing GTA V quite a lot so i thought to share my settings. for me these settings work great.
and i am sure these settings will work out for you even better if you have got a decent system.
because to be honest my current system sucks CPU-wise and storage-wise
but nonetheless it is a great game, especially in director mode. 
as you can play any character.
*Boo, I'm a dog and im gonna shoot you and steal your car* :mad:
and apperently birds aren't allowed to fly above the military airfield fort zancudo, they just get shot out of the air.

but anyhoozle here you go (1080p res.):

Ambient Occlusion: Off
Anisotropic Filtering: x16
DirectX Version: DirectX 11 (not much to change here)
Display Mode: (choose the one you prefer)
Distance Scaling: 100%
Extended Distance Scaling: 30%
Extended Shadows Distance: 0% (but maybe you want it a bit higher, 50% will probably still work fine and not impact performance by much)
FXAA: On
Grass Quality: High/Medium
High Detail Streaming While Flying: On
High Resolution Shadows: Off
In-Game Depth of Field Effects: Off
Long Shadows: On
MSAA: Off
Nvidia TXAA: Off
Particles Quality: Very High/High
Population Density: 100% (more peeps to kill :p)
Population Variety: 100% (can be set lower to decrease randomizer load on CPU)
Post FX: High
Reflection MSAA: Off
Reflection Quality: Very High/High
Resolution: 1920x1080
Shader Quality: High
Shadow Quality: High
Soft Shadows: NVIDIA PCSS
Tesselation: Very High
Texture Quality: High
Water Quality: Very High

NVIDIA Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-aliasing: Off

NOTE: some of these settings cannot be reached in game, you can use GeForce Experience
NOTE: the GTX 960 I am using is slightly overclocked in MSI Afterburner
These are the overclock amounts

Core Voltage (mV): N/A
Power Limit (%): Maximum (as this is the maximum it will draw so you will never bump into problems with that)
Core Clock: +156
Memory Clock: +156
Fan Speed: Auto
then click Apply of course

I hope this will help you out and give you a rough outline what you can use as default settings for GTA V with a GTX 960

It indeed sure is. But my CPU just cant keep up and therefore bottlenecks my GPU. And i cant really play it at max settings of my GPU (or utilize full potential)
