More about game smoothly
  1. GTA4 was a very badly ported game from console to PC and its normal to suffer heavy lag.
  2. To run GTA 4 well you will need a whole new computer. I don't see anything out of that you could keep really except maybe the hard drive.

    Even though the game might not be the best ported game from console to PC, you can definitely make some significant upgrades by getting a new video card, quad core CPU, and motherboard for under 500 usd. Keep the ram and hard drive.
  4. It's probably DDR2 with a Core2Duo. No keeping that.
  5. Your graphics card is not enough to run GTA 4 smoothly and also your processor needs to be changed
