Hello! 
Well, I have a huge issue. I have recently bought a new laptop - MSI GP60 2QF it comes with Intel Core i5 and NVidia GeForce GTX 950M - 2GBs VRAM and 4GBs RAM... I have also bought GTA V as I thought I will enjoy playing it without any issues on medium settings... BUT I can run GTA V at only about 10FPS on the LOWEST Settings... 
I have seen a video on Youtube where a guy played GTA V on the same laptop with the same specs at average 60FPS on pretty HIGH settings. The only difference is that he has 8GBs RAM. 
So my question is - does additional 4GBs RAM really affect the gameplay - FPS that much? 
Are there any drivers I should install to play it smoothly? 

The video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cdFP4FzXSQ

Thanks in advance! Hope you can help me, because it is really important for me...

Well, RAM will make a tremendous difference since you only have 4GB of it. Like I said before, go ahead and buy 8GB of RAM for your laptop, I recommend G.Skill and Corsair Vengeance.

Yes 4GB is WAYY below the minimum requrement for new games, ESPECIALLY GTA V which is the most demanding game on the market right now. Buy 8GB of RAM (or 16GB if it's on a good deal).

However, I'd be wary of 60fps on High settings, unless he's playing at 640 x 480P or something like that. I'd expect mediumish to lowish settings with that GPU, but with a 60fps frame rate.

Well... he plays that on 1280x720 resolution - just check his other videos (I guess it's even shown in this one too...) and as I said, we have the same graphics card and CPU and I think that GPU Nvidia Geforce GTX 950M isn't that bad... the only difference is in RAM
