I have

Intel D945GCR @ 2 GHz processor , core 2 duo, 2 gb ram....and am willing to buy a 3d card now...

I want it to be in the price range of the Nvidia Geforce 9800gt.....


Is that a good card? If i buy the 9800gt, will it run GTA 4 then? If not, then which card of a near, price, preferably lower, will run better....Please answer me in detail

Please dont mind my lack of knowledge and ignorance, i live in Peshawar, Pakistan, and its in the list of the terrorized city, its an an honor to even be infront of a computer here....

have no idea about prices in your part of the world, but I can estimate based on prices from newegg and Tom's Hardware video card guide for 2011.

the 9800gt is about 112-125 usd. In that range you can get some better performing video cards.

6770 and the 5770 are good choices.

Of course the 9800 is still a decent video card. The 450 is an updated version of the 9800 and may be in better supply. You might even look at the nvidia 550ti. It's only about 12$ more than the 450 (from newegg). No issues playing gta 4 with any of these cards mentioned here.

take a look at the Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart: http://www.tomshardw...ard,2964-7.html
Generally speaking you find the video card you have and go 3 up to find what would be a good replacement.
