I've tried quite a lot of mods for GTA IV and they've all ran really well on the G3258. What do you mean by ran like crap (low fps or texture errors)?

I was getting low 20s - low 30s in it, I tried both GTA 4 and EFLC, it was basically running worse than my Phenom II which would run the game at 30fps+
I thought it was another one of those heavily multi-threaded games which don't run well requiring 3+ threads to run well, however you're getting 30fps+

Update on games

Grand Theft Auto 4- Runs like crap, quite surprisingly
Max Payne 3 - Singleplayer runs great, Multiplayer too however I haven't found a full match yet to truly stress the CPU
Skyrim - Runs well
Borderlands 2 - Runs well
Sleeping Dogs - Runs great
Tomb Raider - Runs well
