    I think directx 8.1 comes with XP. There was a small update that u can find using google.

    Looks like directx isn't your problem. Can you explain a bit more of why GTA3 is not working?

    GTA III comes with DX 8.1 browse the CD.
    like HD( not Hard Disk but Hipster Doofus) said this is not your problem, GTA III does not work properly on XP so you need GTA III patch to update yours to version 1.1
