I think you'll find that's primarily a computer specs issue - and for more than just your graphics card. Memory, memory speed, hard drive speed, graphics card memory/speed...every single character within your view range has to be identified, if they're a PC all their GEAR identified, details (mainly visual, depending on mods) grabbed from hard drive, and loaded into RAM or maybe graphics card memory...Think of all the gear slots that are displayed for every PC, and it scales up fast. Try reducing your viewing range (under Video, can never remember exactly which setting - there's 2-3 that sound similar, just mouse-over them to check which ones are the range to see terrain, and objects/people).When you're out and about, there's not much more involved than your graphics card (yes, I'm over-simplifying - but for any decent system, that's mostly true). In a very crowded area, many other aspects of your computers performance steps in, and ANY bottleneck can slow things to a crawl.
