Okay, so I am new here. If I have posted in wrong section then sorry.

I bought new graphics card Ati Radeon hd 5450 1gb ddr2 (new)
My processor : Intel Pentium (R) Dual core e6700 3.2ghz
My ram: 2.5 gb (ddr2)
My hard disk: 150 gb
I installed GTA4, It is running but on very low settings and lags sometimes.

It lags too much on medium settings.
How to upgrade my pc so that it will run smoother in high settings.

In otherway where am I lacking? Do i need to change my mobo and processor or it has to do something with graphics card.
I can only spend 100$ at the moment.
Thanks

$100 isn't enough to make the game playable on your system. Your video card is absolutely terrible and your CPU is bleh at best.

GTA4 heavily favors CPU power. You didn't list what your CPU is but it is a socket 775. I would look into upgrading to a core 2 quad and a much faster video card, if you want. That said, if you want to play GTA4 or any current game you may as well just build a new system.

But I heard that core 2 quad is out of stock now.
Is that true? which video card should I get and how much will it cost.
Yes my socket is 775.

You may not be able to run a Core 2 Quad on your current motherboard.

Core 2 quads have been out of production for several years now, you will have to buy one used.

I would strongly advise against trying to upgrade this system. The money would better be put towards a new system.

That said, if you want a good video card that may help out a bit on your current system, I would recommend a 7750 or 7770 that happens to be on sale. Both should be available for under $100 from online US retailers.

This 7750 for $90

This 7770 for $100 from either newegg or amazon.

You will need a 6 pin PCIE connector for the 7770 and at least a good 400W PSU.

to be honest it runs pretty well on a PS3. Its a very poorly coded game on PC.
