    Default Graphics card for GTA IV

    OK I have a BFG G-Force 7900GTX 512MB

    my system is:

    Windows XP Pro with service pack 3
    Mobo: Asus P5Q-PRO
    chip: Intel Core Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40Ghz
    Ram: 4Gig
    Sound: SB Audigy 4

    I have installed gtaiv 3 times but get so stressed with the graphics lag I uninstall it as its unplayable.
    I have added the intro patch and the V2 patch but still the same I have adjusted all the things I can to try and play it but it looks as though I gotta get a Graphics card?

    so on a budget of 120 whats out there worth it and not ATI
    has to be n-vidia based PCI-E

    Why not ATI?

    Your motherboard can support it, plus ATI 4850 is 100 and has same(if better) performance then a 230 Nivida 260.

    Try to overclock your processor, GTA IV needs more from that than your videocard. And like Austin said, go for the 4850 or 4870 they are cheap and fast

    SLR is right, it is mainly a processor game. I can't upgrade (No moneh), so I just close all unimportant processes. Give that a try, and maybe tone the graphics down a bit, I get an average of ~13FPS with 200 of graphocs 487MB used.

    I've always found that the ATI Xenos works perfectly.

    Ooh! Those ATi Xenos look interesting, might change it in the box to a more powerful, if it works though
