What does the American Dream mean today?For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

i guess you can go with a 9800 gt its a fine gpu for you rig, if you wanna keep this rig you should add at least 2 gigs for ram. just saying core2duo isnt much of a gaming cpu anymore xD

Yeah if you want to play games with the sweet eye candy, save your money. But if yiu want to play games of past generation(as you havent) i.e. from year 2008 to 2013, you can spend 60 dollars on geforce gt 630. Very good card with low price. You would save 300 dollars. Then keep saving money for a new rig. You can play almost every game upto 2013 on low settings with good fps. So, you can know the story of the franchises released from 2008 and so. Just check youtube about gameplay on geforce gt 610. You don't need to upgrade ram as 2 gb is enough

2gb ram is enough for games upto 2013. Btw look at my rig. I can play all games on lowest resolution and settings. And my gpu is very weak. But with gt 630, you could play games on hd resolution and low settings upto 2013. Your cpu won't be a problem as it is above minimum of all games upto 2013. After 2013 the quad core become the minimum. So you can buy a gt 630 and play previous games of current franchises so that you can catch up with the story going in the present titiles( like Assassins Creed……..

….. which has a long story and you should check the previous titles first as it will attach you to thw core od the franchise. So in this way you would be able to play games as well with gt630 and catch up with the storyline and the buy a new rig with the savwd money and blast all games to ultra on full hd. Though there are good cards better than gt 630 with higher price and which would work with dual cores but I would not recommend that as it would not give you much benefit. Rather get the gt 630 and save money. Hope it helps.
