Grand Theft Auto 3 Discussion
i´m playing GTA3 on an old computer and the game is sloooooow. i changed the video options to minimum detail, lowest resolution etc, but it is still very slow. i would like to ask what is making the game so slow, whether memory (128mb and windows xp running) or other things like video card etc.
i have very little idea about computers, but i have the opportunity of buying another 128mb memory card. could anyone tell me whether the game will run faster with more memory, or whether the "bottleneck" is the video card or something else??

Your processor is very old. Really, really, very old. There's no way to change that.
I bet you have onboard graphics, too. That doesn't help. About the most you can do there is go to the graphics maker's website and get whatever graphics update patches there are for your system.
About the only way you can help your computer right now is to put as much memory in it as you can get in it.
But, honestly, that will be cost ineffective in the end, since you can buy an off-the-shelf desktop tower these days for about $300, and if you end up pouring $150 into memory for a computer that's outlived its usefulness in this era, you might as well spring for the other $150 and buy the new computer. You can then sit down in front of the computer and learn about computers, so you can help yourself and your computer in the future.
