    Well, my little bro wants to play San Andreas on the comp. But the computer specs are totally shit.
    Would putting more RAM decrease the ultra laggyness in San Andreas?

    It would help ... but ... and this is a guess without knowing your specs ... your computer's specs, that is [​IMG] ... a better graphics card may help more ...

    Putting more RAM would not really help that much. The game will still be ugly. The reason that it is ugly is because your resolution is low. Try to make it higher. If your computers sucks, then it will be really slow. The solution in this case is to buy a new video card. Video card usually solves alot of your problems in gaming, not so much ram.
    -EDIT- Just saw your specs. There is no way that card can run that game. Try upgrading to a good AGP video card. Also, what is your CPU speed, Model and such? How much ram do you have?
