Hi my name is Chase and I am looking for a new something, I am not sure. With the current setup i have, I need to turn settings on all low as possible and on 800x600 @ 56 hz to run the my game Grand Theft Auto 4 smoothly. With the lowest possible settings it is still a bit choppy when driving at high speeds. I would just like to put the settings up to medium to high and on 1280x800 @ 60hz or around there with it running smoothly all the time. Basicly i want my computer to run the game like an Xbox 360 would. Here is My current setup:
Cpu: Amd Phenom II x2 560 Black Edition unlocked to an Amd Phenom II x4 B60
Mainboard: Asus M4n68t-m v2
Ram: 8Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3
Graphics: XFX ATI Radeon HD 4550
Hard Drive: 500gb Western Digtial 7200rpm
ok Well i went out to best buy yesterday and got the same video card you recomended and got a diffrent psu, its a 550 watt and man i can tell a huge diffrence. Just one question, my old video card was a 1 GB and so is this one. What makes the diffrence?
