Do you mean a Sandy Bridge i3/i5 processor?

What is your total budget including the CPU and GPU?

Are their any other games you play?

The thing with GTAIV is that it is a very poorly coded game.So even if you ugprade you may not see that much of an increase.But what I found to be most helpful was upgrading the processor.

How much in total do you have to spend on PC upgrades?

Intel i5's usually cost around $200 or about INR 10000.But that's just for the processor itself.You will have to upgrade your motherboard and RAM.That's why i'm asking what your total budget is for this.

New I3/I5 would require a new motherboard and DDR3 RAM. A new video card would be the cheaper route to improve game performance, but for GTA IV to run well your going to want a better CPU and better GPU.

I would go for a Sandybridge i3 and spend what money you have left on a new GPU.

The thing is that i3/i5 are not compatible with your motherboard. So it is better for you to upgrade your GPU...something like 6850 or 6870 should not be much limited by your CPU

Well first things first.Find a mobo and some RAM then post back with how much money you have left in your budget.
