Can't you just ask your parents for money? all those cards you mentioned suck, they're not really for gaming...they more HTPC GPUs used in computers with no built-in GPUs.

That thing is NOT capable of running crysis,GTA or assassin creed (specailly this one becuase assassin creed is a CPU intensive game) .... anyways, either ask your parents for money,start working or don't buy anything because no matter what you add to that build it will suck....i am sorry but thats the truth :D

While the "can't you just ask your parents for money? " bit is rather... Inappropriate...

Those GPUs are not for gaming. A 6670 for 50 bucks would be your best bet.

That being said your CPU is pretty weak, and you are wanting to play crysis, which takes high end hardware, and GTA 4 which is horribly coded. it does meet their minimum specs for all 3. just don't plan on playing at high resolutions or details. And I don't know how its gonna play

And upgrade windows XP to service pack 3... Support for service pack 2 ended years ago which means you are not getting security updates. And its required for GTA 4

it might be inappropriate but it is the truth... that build sucks in every way and you can't game on it.... not unless you game @640x480 :lol:
