Poor Performance on My high spec PC !
Posted 11 June 2005 - 06:50 PM
I just got san andreas today and after a few hours of playing im very frustraighted with what appears to be a hesitation every 5 or six seconds when driving mainly. The game usually suffers a mild pause and there is a skip in the music. Ive ran it on all the graphic settings from the lowest to the highest and the problem is always there in various degrees. Does anyone know what could be causing this i have a machine well over the recommended specs. Heres what im running
AMD 64 3200 +
1 Gb Geil Ram
X800XT 256 Mb
Sound Blaster Audigy 2
My system gets a good aquamarks score of 69000 and should easily handle this game ive had no problems with other power intesive games like say doom3 .
Any help ?

That sounds like it could be a number of things, here is what I would try:
Turn of "System Restore" on the hard drive which you have the game installed on
Make sure that "Virtual Memory" is set to "System Managed" and not manual
Run "DXDIAG" and lower the "Sound" acceleration to "Standard"
Disabled you anti-virus protection software before playing the game
Also make sure you have the latest available drivers for your sound card. See http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=195032 for an explanation why. Not exactly the same problem, I know, but sound drivers / hardware can be responsable for up to 20% of game performance, in some cases.
Also, make sure you have the latest display drivers, (ATI released new ones recently)
Let us know if any of this helps.

And no, your computer should be fine. I have a similar setup, a slower processor but a faster video card, and I'm running at 1600x1200 with 4xFSAA. I'd check the sound card drivers. Seems like SA has some serious audio issues. Myself included (I need to run on basic audio, which then messes up MP3 playback in iTunes - give and take).
