No more stuttering, no more missing textures. The engine for the PC version is very solid now. My computer will run it 1280x1024 no problems (AthlonXP 1800, GF4 ti4200). Also something to note for HTPC users...it seems they have built in a lot of front projector native resolutions in the game. i.e. 854x480, 1368x768 (might be a bit off on the exact numbers but you get the idea) Highly recommended even if GTA3 PC left a sour taste in your mouth.
