GTA: San Andreas - PC System Requirements

The PC version of GTA: San Andreas is compatible only with Windows 2000 and Windows XP. You'll require Service Pack 1 or above and DirectX 9, along with DirectX 9 compatible drivers. It will be packaged on a DVD-ROM only, so if you've not got a compatible drive, now is the time to upgrade.

Minimum Hardware
Recommended Hardware
  • 1Ghz Pentium III or AMD Athlon Processor
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 8-Speed DVD-ROM drive
  • 3.6GB of free hard disk space (minimal install)
  • 64MB Video Card (Geforce 3 or better)
  • DirectX 9 compatible Sound Card
  • Keyboard & Mouse
  • Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon XP Processor
  • 384MB of RAM (the more the better!)
  • 16-Speed DVD-ROM drive
  • 4.7GB of free hard disk space (full install)
  • 128MB (or greater) Video Card (Geforce 6 Series Recommended)
  • DirectX 9 compatible Sound Card (Sound Blaster Auidgy 2 Recommended)
  • Gamepad with twin axis analog controls
  • Keyboard & Mouse
Interestingly, Rockstar have this time chosen to team up with nVidia, Alienware and Creative Labs for a software/hardware marketing push. Rockstar are only recommending Geforce 6 and SB Audigy cards because of these deals. Lesser hardware will likely provide the same experience, so don't fret if you're only running a 5950 or something similar. You'll also be fine with any ATi Video Card.
