  1. i have a HP Pavilion a6519fh Desktop PC with OS windows vista (dont know what bit) and my video card kinda sucks, and i bought the game GTA IV, and it says that i need to upgrade my video card, and thats the trouble that im having. i have read info about needing to try and find what motherboard name i have. here it is:

    •Manufacturer: Asus
    •Motherboard Name: IPIBL-LB
    •HP/Compaq motherboard name: Benicia-GL8E

    the price range of a video card that plays GTA IV fairly well, is no more than $100 if possible.

    Even if you do get a high end video card, I'm quite sure that your slow cpu will be the bottleneck.
