    When I re-installed the GTA3 and the game converted the graphics to optimal level, there is now constantly (about every 5 sec) little slow downs (stops) in the game. Before the graphics were converted to my Radeon 7500 card and worked well with my 9700 Pro, but now when I re-installed the game and the graphics were converted to the 9700 Pro card, there are these annoying slow downs all the time!! These same slow downs also occur in the Colin McRae Rally 3 demo.

    I have tried the Catalyst 3.2 and 3.4 drivers but it didnīt make any difference!

    Iīm sooooo pissed off!!! Those games should work veeeryyy smoothly with the 9700 Pro!! :grr: :grr:

    I tried to run the game with 1024x768, 32bit colours and no AA/AF on. (though those settings shouldnīt make any difference to the performance)

    Please help! :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Are they videocard slowdowns, or are they system slowdowns?

    Sometimes I get them if I haven't been in a car for a bit and the CD spins down, so the system has to wait for it to spin back up.

    What else do you have running in the background? Not SETI I hope....

    I donīt have anything special running on the background (virus scan disabled :rolleyes: ). I think they are video card slowdowns, because the HDD or CD drive isnīt doing anything at the time. This is so annoying...I got a top of the line vid card and still some games wonīt run properly! :cry: :cry:

    I wouldnīt want to put back my 7500 card and re-install the GTA3 and then put back my 9700 card... (the textures wouldīve been converted for the 7500 card) :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2

    PS. The first time I notice this problem was after I installed the RealGTA update and the game re-converted the textures.
