Is there a 'best all around' texture/graphics mod for GTA 4?

Hi all, new here. I am thinking about starting to mod GTA 4 to make it look better. But after looking around on this site, it almost seems like there are different mods for each aspect. For example, there might be one mod that makes all the characters look better. Another might do just the cars. Another might just do the buildings, or the streets. So I wanted to stop by and ask, which one/s should I do if I want the whole thing to look better? Is there a single mod that addresses everything? Or perhaps I should download and install multiple mods to get the best effect? What would you recommend? Which ones?

I should also mention that I seem to be able to patch... only up to 1.04. It goes to 1.07... right? Well for some reason, if I patch any higher than 1.04, the game will simply never open. I can click and try every thing I know to try to get the game to start up and run, but it just won't. The fact that I am using Windows 7 64 bit might have something to do with that, I don't know.

RealismIV is the best i've seen. And realismIV with ENB series. But dont go overkill with the bloom and reflection.

Thank you sir. I was hoping that you could tell me though, what does ENB stand for? And if Realism IV is so good, why do you need ENB to go with it? Do they compliment each other or something?

RealizmIV gives better minor tweaks or so it says, ENB gives generally better reflections.

Ok so neither of them really deal with textures then? Is there another one that I should use with those two, that gives better textures?

There is a mod on GTAgarage called Better City Textures, its quite large (4GB) and it kind of broke when I was installing it, but hey, my net is shit, you can give it a go.

It broke after you already had it downloaded? I'm not sure I'm understanding you. Don't wanna download it if its messed up..
