I can't understand it. The same old 2002 engine with very minor improvements, sure, city is larger and there are some more details on the street, but c'mon, I played Vice City on Ti4200 videocard and it was butter smooth, now I've got 6800 (A2400+1Gig RAM) and can't squeeze a decent framerate off it no matter what I do. All settings are lowest, and it still delivers appalling performance. This is beyond my understanding. wallbash_red.gif

I know what you mean. I was playing San Andreas originally on a 5900xt 128mb with everything on very high and 3x AA and I was getting smooth performance. As soon as I upgraded to a 6600 (non gt) 256mb it has been s-l-o-w even though Rockstar recommend the 6*** series cards. There must be an issue with the 6*** cards because other people have been complaining about the same poor performance.

It's not only Geforce 6xxx issue, it looks like the game doesn't tolerate m/b integrated audio (mine is AC'97, with last drivers). I picked an external soundcard from my studio (pro audio card) and the game seems to run better now, although still pretty slow.

not to spoil your fun SeeJay.. but the game runs very smooth on my 6800gt. all in-game settings maxed and i get 40-50fps @1280x1024x32. must be a driver problem on your end, as i was having similar issues at first, but after driver upgrade and couple of reboots later game runs great now.

try the 77.50 as they've worked for me for the past 2 weeks..

Think the game has some Video as well as some Audio issues. When I first played the game, everytime I enter inside a house, the game just crashes, infact my whole computer crashes. Later I found out that it was an audio problem in dxdiag.exe, all along I thought it was a videocard issue and even thought of buying a new one.

Works fine on my 6600GT, If you upgrade your drivers make sure you totally uninstall the old ones (Only ever uninstall drivers from safemode) and get rid of the orphan files (there are free tools out there to do this)

I've seen it work badly on a 5700FX until all orphan files were removed.

Give it a go!

I am also having this problem, my computer far surpasses the recomended specs, yet gta sa still runs bad on the lowest settings. Seejay, i also have AC'97 audio hardware/software, does this really effect the game?

BTW i found some brand new nvidia drivers, version 80.40, they helped me a little bit.

Download them here:
