    Well I'm running at 1600 x 1200 @ 32 bit colour no probs. It was pretty choppy until I put the frame limiter on and left vsync off. Although to be honest I've run it at 1024 x 768 @ 32 bit and theres not a whole lot of difference anyway. Bugs aside I think Rockstar have done a quality job on this - every bit as enjoyable as the PS2 version and nicer looking to boot :D

    Amazing isn't it ? it was only a few months ago that if you had a 1 gig processor you had just about the fastest chip out there, yet now its going silly. What we up to, 2.53 gig P4 with 533 FSB or something? I wouldn't mind getting me one of those babies. But at £600 a pop I think I'll be giving it a miss for now. Saw an article yesterda about slashing the prices of cpu's, but hasn't happened over here in the UK as of yet.
    Then again, I've not really found anything that puts a strain on my system - until Doom III and Unreal 2003 come out anyway :D
