Uh, sometimes my computer starts to choke when a lot of action starts up. (I have some high details, but medium geometry and 16-bit textures...)

Celeron 700MHz
GeForce 2 MX (32MB)
192MB RAM

my computer is weird on max payne, I can run EVERYTHING a max detail at 1024x768 with 4x FSAA with about 60FPS but I get random crashes saying, detail is to higher, try and lower it to prevent this crash, or some weird stuff like that, quite annoying cuz I don't know WHAT detail to lower.

On my 500 MHz Celeron and Voodoo 2 (!) I could run it decently w/ all low settings except for character detail and texture detail set on medium, with no FSAA (obviously) and 640x480x16. It ran just fine like that, but when I got my GeForce 2 MX/400 64MB :D it ran a lot better. So it can be done but it won't be as pretty as it could be.

True... there's nothing like leaving a room where the walls are 50% covered with bullet holes :D Neojag, you can play MP on your PC, but if you wanna enjoy it to its fullest, get an upgrade first.

max payne needs gpu memory your p4 2Ghz must have DDRAM or RDRAM to store aditional textures that your TNT can't handle and still if you compare your framerate on TNT with a GF3 you can say that it also needs GPU processing power

neojag: i once heard that you need atleast 2300+ 3dmarks(2001) to play Max Payne properly (they are probably right since 3dmark uses Max Payne engine) try the demo if it work on you, then you can decide on getting the game. btw it really kick ass, John Woo style!!!
