More ram will help but your gpu and cpu are all too low end to be able to run gta 4.
A major upgrade is necessary.

hy. ok, its not your graphics card that will be making it slow, its your cpu (processor). pentium 3.0 will not run gta 4 very well, you could try overclocking it but BE WARNED ITS AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU DO. ram will increase sppeed a little but gta 4 is a demanding game, even some of the best computers struggle with it. my old pc, core 2 duo extreme, 2gb ddr3 dual channel, hd 4850 1gb gpu, and still laged a little in some cases. go with a intel core 2 quad if you are able to purches it. or the cheapest quad core you can find, or desent dual core cpu. do note, new mobo will be required. hope all goes well

The game really has bad port. That's actually the real problem. In this case, your P4 3.0 is just not enough for the game to run. You need to upgrade it and RAM to a Core 2 Quad or Core i5 quad cores(CPU) to get decent or good frames Furthermore, you would need a Intel LGA 775 mobo for the Core 2 Quad and an LGA 1156 socket supported mobo for the Core i5 or Core i7

Buy Athlon ii x4 635(Budget Quad Core) or if you can afford go for phenom 2 x4 series and (these are way cheaper than intel)

and get a new gpu it will help,,

GTA 4 is a badly ported game so...it requires somewhat heavy rig..cpu dependent game(mostly) :hello: 

Check my current configuration(soon to upgrade)

it will be cheaper for you and would have smooth gameplay(if you could add up 2gb more memory)

GTA 4 is not a good game for pc, even when i could play it in low frame rate and with ugly graphics I found the controls to be pretty bad, like goin bowling caused me allsorts of problems. I conceded that the best gta game for pc is san andreas and the multiplayer is good too google sa:mp, ur computer will run this easy as has been suggested gta 4 is bad port like bully scholarship edition was, rockstar obviously care more about the console market i think

Play GTA IV Liberty city stories.....you'll get good frame rates...in the first half i was getting 30-40fps with high settings and later started getting 55-65fps ...i turned off reflections.

GTA IV Episodes from the liberty city performs more poorly than GTA iv.And add to that the graphics also sucks.
