A cpu and gpu combination from those would probably work pretty well. Have to stretch budget a little bit but after rebates you could get a 4870 1GB and Phenom II x3 710 for $230. But Personally I would get the x3 720 for the unlocked multiplier and a 1gb card since GTA IV is not only cpu intensive but also gpu memory intensive. Also maybe check around for combo deals and check slickdeals.net for deals, theres been a decent amount of 4870 and Nvidia gtx 260 deals going on lately.

EDIT: found this on slickdeals
MSI R4870-T2D1G Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express x16 (2.0v) Video Card Retail at ZipZoomfly 4870 1gb $141 - $20mir. So this and a x3 720 would come out to $241 after mir.
