Hard to say. Graphics card is really powerful, and I didn't play SAMP for ages. Good thing is that I will get a new PC with GTX 760 and play SAMP so I know before the end of the year. My bet is about 150fps.

Depends on how many textures you're gonna put. I actually run the game horribly at max with texture mods, I get around 30 fps :(

What CPU do you use with that MX440? And how much RAM?

It's not his CPU because I used to play this on a Pentium 4 at 2.4GHz without HT (without lag). Is it just this game that lags? Or do other games lag as well?
