-AMD Athlon 1 gig
-128 meg of ram(need upgrading)
-Nvidia Tnt2 pro 32 mb(need upgrading)
-40 gig's of HD space.(prolly need upgrading just for my personal use.)

to play GTA3 all you need to do is replace your video card. get at least a geForce4 440MX or radeon 9000. get better models if you want even faster 3D performance and if you can afford it.

i would take out the old video card or disable it in CMOS setup unless you plan to use 2 monitors at the same time. if your TNT pro is occupied in the AGP slot you have to get a PCI video card.
