We going to need a little more info there Sunnyy,

What price range are you looking at?

What res are you planning to run at?

Also if you can list more of your systems spec's ( motherboard, powersupply, case) it would help

Thanks

the HD5770 can be found for less than $150, HD5750 and GTS250 for around $130 everything else is $100 or less. Unless you look on ebay, I've seen GTS250's there for $70, but they were used.

your issue with medium will also be your CPU, GTAIV really needs a triple core at least to get it playable due to it being a poor port

will these graphic cards run gta 4 at medium settings,i.e.,the game won't get stuck while playing?

And my cpu{amd x2 250} can it take gta 4 or is it a goner?

at 3.1ghz, your X2 250 should have plenty of clockspeed to not create a bottleneck for one of the mid-range graphics cards you are considering.

there will be other factors, though, that can affect smooth gameplay. Can you give a complete system checklist? CPU, motherboard, hard drive, memory, power supply.

it's a start, but a complete list of system components would help (asked for the second time). Asus makes several M4N motherboards "68CTB2" doesn't mean anything to me.

for example:

Athlon X2 7850
Biostar A780L
2x1 GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800
Sapphire HD3870 256mb
WD 500GB SATA II
Corsair 450VX PSU

need a list like that.

Thats good, but you didn't list you power supply. If you don't know you realy need to find out before you buy a video card.

Card's like the 6850 and gtx460 need at least a 500w psu and more than likly your cpu will bottle neck them. But even bottlenecked thay will still run circles around the top two I listed.

Oh yeah,
the top two will have no problem running gta 4 at medium settings. the bottom two, high settings, no problem.
