    I would recommend this...

    If you want to get into modern PC gaming, I would say that GPU is the bare minimum. It is a really good mid-range card.

    Let me also point out that GTA4 is very, very, very, VERY CPU intensive. I have an i5 2500k @ 4.20GHz and can just barely max it out, despite the fact my GPUs are beast. GTA4 will gobble up every CPU resource you have and beg for more.

    I would also invest in a good CPU cooler and try to do a little overclocking if you think to tackle GTA4 - which is terribly optimized, I might add.
  4. Yep ^1+.

    That's pretty much the best card you can get on that budget, if you are willing to stretch it a bit more, you also have this option:

    The card Pcgamer linked for you would be your best choice then.

    You can also check the Classified and deals section of the forum, you may find a better card used for about 100$ if you are lucky and don't mind a used card.

    ok.. how about 1 GB AMD HD6570 DDR5 ? is this good enough to run GTA IV at 1600x1080?

    some reviews said that 6570 is not good for gaming. Is that true?
  9. It's true, it's pretty low end, the 6770 is the minimum you can use really, and should perform slightly better than a console on that card.

    And one more thing... is GT 440 far better than 6570? can you show any benchmark comparison results between them?
