Computer Running GTA 3 Slow

Recommended Posts

Alright my pc is not completyly new a few years old. So i normally run GTA 3 in 800X600X32 mode and im expiriencing some lag its not just MTA if i run single player also and get the same thing. I normally get about 12 FPS. Which is a little below normal

Heres my PC Specs

Proccessor 1.0 GHz

Ram 768 MB

Video Card/Geforce 2 MX 400

I have been asking some people and where my pc lacks is in the video card. I dont know how true this is so im asking your opinion. I hope to soon get Vice City so i want that to run good to.

Also if i do upgrade video card what do you think i should upgrade it to.

Thank You --Towlies

12 fps is not a little below normal, it's less than half the minimum playable framerate.

You're lacking SEVERELY in both video card and processor, don't upgrade, get a new system.

If you're on a budget, I would recommend a AMD64 system with 3200+/3000+ processor, 1+ GB RAM, and nVidia 6800 or equivalent video card.

In the meantime try turning on trails and 16 bit color, if you haven't tried that yet.

Alright i just got Vice City and wow world of differnce im getting around 20 FPS running at 1024X768X32.

Alot of improvement. Just wondering if i put a Gforce 4 in this pc because i am on a tight budget would this inprove it alot or not because of the slower proccessor

It would but be aware that your putting money into something that's obsolete, and you are still limited by the processor. Just make sure it's a GeForce 4 Ti, not MX. If you have a bit more money, try to get a 6600GT (~$120), or a 6600 (~$90).
