It would for sure be better. What is your budget?

The 7850 will, but your cpu is also a problem, you have to overclock that thing, my 4.6ghz 3570k can only run this game at 50fps

GTA 4 is a Cpu intensive game and its not optimized at all.
a 3570k would have done much better.

honestly, the game is terrible... i got a 2600k @ 5 ghz and a xfx 7950 @ 1 ghz, and with everything maxed out i get 55-60 fps... that should be enough, but it still feels horrible... so i turned it down to high (instead of ultra high) without any changes in fps, but the lag is gone! and i can't really see any difference in graphics...so now i run it smooth in 6028x1080, no lag at all smile.gif yet, ultra high feels horrible even on one monitor, with the same fps...

with gta 4, overclocking is a must. you can't find a processor that can run this game without OC.

I would still go for a decent gpu and possibly a good cpu cooler and overclock that thing.
