Alright... well I am new to the forums and the site but it looks very Promising... I live in the caribbean therefore the currency here is 6.42 Dollars = 1 USD, therefore if I am going to buy a 110 USD part it would be like 6x the amount. I am trying to build a custom PC for the first time (I have help, therefore I won't screw up), but... I never purchased a Graphics card because I don't know anything about it... I'm using a Intel i5 3330, therefore it would come with the Intel(R) HD Graphics 2500, but I'm wandering GTA IV came out and GTA V is coming out soon... so I just want a card that can run those games on full graphical properties. But... I don't want a card that would cost alot and then a year later it would be like.. useless. So I want worth for money... I have atleast 100 USD to spend so... can anyone give advise me to a good graphics card ? Would appreciate it soo much. If it would be cheaper than 100 USD I'd also appreciate it, Thank you.

Well for 100 USD you're not going to get anything much. If you can get a Gigabyte GTX770 Windforce 2GB then you would be set for about 4 years :)  (I'm very happy with mine) but those cards are 400 USD. Can you tell me what your PSU and case are?

I'm using a Midtower Thermal Intake V2 Case, I can't really remember my PSU at the moment and honestly to remove the case right now without the proper tools would be hard. But its good power source probarly 300 amps and up... I didn't buy the PSU because I wasn't really going to build the computer... it was like a project I decided to start since I am pursuing I.T in College.

Well from what I've read... that case doesn't include fans. Really you're gonna need a 750watt PSU to be able to power a high spec graphics card and all the other components properly.

Even I am using Intel i5 3330 which has Intel(R) HD Graphics 2500. I have played a lots of games over a period which include:
assassin's creed 1,2,brotherhood, reveletion,3
cod black ops,black ops2
max payne 3
gta 4
remember me and lots(i dont even remember the name)
and all I have played in medium setting (which i think is more than enough for what I am paying)
So I guess GTA 5 would work on it fine

I guess now this thread has been brought back that I can ask how you got on. What card did you get? Does it perform how you expected? And if you didn't get a card yet then you could probably get by with a 7770 if you're willing to play at 720p high settings and not 1080p.
