ok, most likely its your hard drive. When you save something, for instance a word document, it goes in your hard drive, and gets scattered. Most likely, GTA SA is doing this because your hard drive is messy ( data wise ) if I where you, I would defragment the hard drive. To do this, go to system tools. Hope this helped.

and try lowering your display settings to as low as possible:

 

options > display settings > advanced.

 

Edit: this belongs in troubleshooting, move request sent.

check that you have nVIDIA graphics card and that you jave at least 3 gigs of free space of HDD and that it is fairly new, not 10 yeard old one. then set your settings to lowest and if it still slow, then you can call me bad names.

First of all, make sure that your PC satisfies the San Andreas system requirments:

Upgrade your PC or buy a new one. More than the RAM, I would advice you to get a better graphics card. What you're using now is integrated graphics, which wasn't designed for gaming. If you got more RAM, the game would still be laggy with integrated graphics.
