Phenom II 955 is awesome at GTA IV, assuming you don't have a GPU bottleneck.

Np. Go with a HD 5770 if you are looking to get an epic value. It is the best price/performance card out there atm.

No. No 9800 sir and I would say stick with the phenom 955.

Yep. 5770/955 would absolutely destroy Q83/9800 in most everything.

GTS250 outperforms the HD5770 in GTAIV. I was sadly disappointed when I found this out, as I was really into GTAIV when I got my 5770.
