... and bought a new graphics card.

About a month before Herself broke her humerus I had to stop playing GTA V because some change at Rockstar had made it use a tiny little bit more video memory that previously, which was causing my venerable GTX660Ti to run out of memory*
Which meant I could play for minutes only before the sound started to stutter, and if I ignored that then it would randomly crash to the desktop. The only solution to this was to drop the game resolution from 1920x1080 to ... 800x600. Which was solid but ugly as hell and unplayable in the real world.
So I didn't play. And I've missed it.

No more! I have bought a new card - RTX4060 - which should be fine for a few years of life when GTA VI finally comes out**
It'll be here tomorrow (along with the Displayport to HDMI adapters I'll need) - I'm looking forward to this!

* I suspect that my triple monitor setup contributed to this, but I've been running that fine for years.
** Currently expected next year? The financial projections from Take-Two Interactive predicted a massive increase in sales in its upcoming 2025 fiscal year which starts in April 2024.
