That took some time....

Anyway, in GTA V the fps usually sits at around 60 when walking around the city. However when the camera is facing towards the Vine wood sign towards the hills the fps drops to around 30fps. When driving around the northern part of the map the fps does not go above 40fps, and it is very choppy. Really, my £700 GPU and £300 CPU is getting 30 FPS?! Please help someone...

    MSAA 8x kills my frame rate in GTAV so the first thing I would do is drop that to 2x or 4x. Extended distance scaling and shadow distance can causes issues so you might try reducing them if reducing MSAA doesn't help.
