Score! Got my copy of GTA3 in today! The game is great, even at a measly 3 fps (or something similar) that my ancient video card can supply. I guess now I'm going to be forced to upgrade...it's a perfect excuse to get the card I've been eyeballing for quite a while now. It's not exactly cheap, but I found a relatively good deal on Pricewatch. In any case, it just HAS to perform a bazillion times better than the Rage 128 I'm running now in 640x480 in 16 bit color. Seriously, when doing missions the clock ticks at about one second per three real seconds...so go figure! Yes, it isn't even playable (yet). :-)
I will actuall miss Texas barbecue when we move.
