Do any of them run better than the normal ones? I know the game is incredibly unoptimized; will installing a one increase my FPS? (Which one?) Right now it can drop to low 20s sometimes.

Texture packs bring even better textures, the game is not unoptimized, it just needs a lot of VRAM because of the textures, so no, the last thing you should do is to look for textures that make the game run better because people make texture packs to make even better textures not worse.

Ok.... I do need to get more RAM. But somewhere I saw that one of the packs was more optimized than the original. Thanks for the answer though!

Not RAM, VRAM :P to run perfectly it needs a graphics card with 1.5 gb of VRAM.

Yea that's gotta be my largest complaint. GTA4 game consumes VRAM like it's made out of hard drive space.
