A friend just gave me an old copy of GTA Vice City (not Cider port, I'm assuming). What are the best video settings for minimal chopiness (which I experience mostly while driving)?

See my sig for my setup. Thanks!

First Go to www.intel.com and download the Intel GMA 950 chipset drivers for your graphics card.

Install the latest version from intel.

Once finished restart windows.

After you are done your lag should go away.

The drivers that are included with leopard are garbage and have issues.

This is why it is a good idea to install intel's Driver's.

Game Settings:

The best settings for GTA:Vc are 800x600 or 640 x 480 the higher you go the more lag you will experiance.

This mainly has to do with most games under windows xp and vista block the use of the intel GMA chipset.
