My PC was real sh*t back then. It was below minimum requirements. It had 246 MB of RAM (just 10 MB short of 256 MB required.) I can't remember how much exactly video memory it had but it was an integrated Intel graphics. This piece of sh*t didn't even have a DVD ROM drive, it had CD Rom drive. But I wanted to play SA bad so I downloaded it.
It was real pain to play: it was near impossible to drive, character's lips were out of sync in cutscenes, issues with even the most trivial aspects of gameplay.
Game was somewhat playable when friend in school told me to set visual fx quality at low. Speaking of display settings - my graphics card didn't allow for any kind of anti aliasing or mip mapping - these options were grayed out in the menu.
(I had a flashback when attempting to run GTAV on my current system. Also a pain to play, but different issues. My current system is also below minimum requirements of GTAV)
How good computer you had back in 2005?.
