I am looking for a relatively inexpensive graphics card (under $200) that will run GTA IV smoothly on my current setup.
Here is my rig... (I will of course be replacing my current graphics card)
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 @2.33Ghz
8GB DDR3 1066Mhz RAM (I think the frequency is correct)
AMD Sapphire Radeon HD5450 (Yes, I know, I know... >.< LOL)
Currently I get an average 15-20FPS on the lowest settings. Barely playable... but after about 45 mins I've had enough.
I'd like to run GTA IV on my PC (Current rig) and getting a consistant 30-40+ FPS.
You guys know any low profile Graphics card to do so? Keep in mind I'm in of course, a low profile case. To be exact, a Gateway SX2800. So there isn't much room for clearance. Worse comes to worse, I will literally cut a whole or section out of the PC tower. But I'd rather not.

The only real option is a low profile 7750 if your PSU can handle the extra 35 Watts.
That being said GTA IV is horribly coded and runs like a pig in general.
