Which means that you need a card with more VRAM.

Also, 9600GT?

Yep but saving up till june aint that long really. Oh and btw AMD chips like cool more than volts so if you are looking to splash out to get more speed then a high quality cpu cooler would not go a miss. Just as an example.

X4 955 @ 3900Mhz 1.5v fans at 5v on NH-D14 stable
X4 955 @ 4000Mhz 1.5v fans at 5v on NH-D14 unstable
X4 955 @ 4000Mhz 1.5v fans at 7v on NH-D14 stable
X4 955 @ 4100Mhz 1.5v fans at 7v on NH-D14 unstable
X4 955 @ 4100Mhz 1.5v fans at 12v on NH-D14 stable

I find that anything below 55c is the optimum temp.

Yea GTA 4 shows a 9600gt on every benchmark lol..

I was thinking that more vram would be the best upgrade-wise but still dont know what to get and if its going to be worth it, i was thinking about getting another 4870 in xfire, but i dont have another pci-e slot, so idk, any suggestions?

The benchmark told you that you need a new GPU. I suggest that you purchase a new GPU that performs well, within your budget.

Also, have you downloaded and installed all of the latest GTA4 patches?

Here's a GTA4 benchmark article with charts that should help you decide.

According to the above article, the HD5750 should do just fine, however, why settle for that when you can spend a few bucks more and get something that you won't have to upgrade for a few months or, even years, AND get much better performance in your games? My suggestion: GTX 560ti or equivalent.
