If you really wanna play with a gamepad, I suggest you get a gamepad that has the same design as a PS2 controller, so you can use it the same way and still have all the functions there, on the gamepad. But that's just me =)

The xbox controller allows you to use degrees of gas/brake which is cool, but it fails when you want to do drive bys. Picture this:
left thumb on left analog stick(steer car)
right forefinger on right trigger(gas)
left forefinger on left trigger (brake)
right thumb on A button (fire)
So, now the look left/right buttons are unreachable. you have to push them along with 'A', so you end up using your palm or nose or tongue or something.
I recently played on my friend's xbox, and i am bitter.
Heres something to try. If you have a joystick, you can play gta pretty effectively with a joystick and the numpad. Sounds crazy, but i did it for months before i finaly bought the gamepad.
I try and include the mouse for sniping, rocket launching, or any minigun firing missions. FYI - anytime you go to 1st person perspective (ie - when you cans see cj, just the crosshairs) you can use the mouse to move and fire. This makes certain parts one billiont times easier. Just for example, when you kill ryder, just snipe his ass as he swims to a boat. That part gave me trouble for awhile.

I will probably look at getting a Logitech pad.

|Wait, are the mouse and keyboard easy to play with?|
You'll find that with practice you'll be able to cope with either.
The state of your post suggests that you're just too lazy (no offence) to try one or the other and that you want a sure-fire absolute word on which is better out of a gamepad or the mouse/keyboard combination. It's not that simple.
I personally go for the mouse and keyboard because I find the mouse allows for greater control than any gamepad could provide. You'll actually need to spend a bit of time trying different things before you can make the decision that you and only you are really in a position to make.
