Buy new stuff.

I also get slowdowns & friends with Geforce4Ti4600/XP1800 also experience it.

Rockstar Games probably made a poor convertion of the game.

I've heard that even on high end systems it can go slow and jitter. Apparently the game makers were in a rush to get it out that the programming wasn't the best, hence causing jitter problems in the game. I wouldn't bother upgrading ya comp.

i have figured out the problem. all i ahd to do was enable DMA for my hard drive and the game ran great.

I just installed my Radeon 8500le and the game runs much smother at higher rez but now I have a new problem!

The fog looks totally different then with my geforce2MX. Now I can barely see past the hood. It is making the game almost unplayable. I am using the new catalyst drivers.

Thx in advanced.

You might want to try turning off the trails feature and the frame sync feature. If you still have problems lower the draw distance. After I adjusted those settings everything worked fine. My specs are:
