I have recently bought a Sparkle GeForce 4 Ti 4200 AGP 8 with VIVO. However it does not run games such as GTA 3 properly, they lag. I am running it in an ASUS P4S533-E motherboard with a pentium 4 1.8 GHZ processor and 512 ram. Is the video card to blame?

Is your video card running in PCI mode?
You have the latest BIOS and chipset driver from ASUS?
What's the AGP apeture in your BIOS set to?

I'm sorry, but GTA3 cannot run without lagging.  Take down the resolution to 800×600, and you can have full draw distance.  You can take the resolution up to 1024×768, but then you shouldn't have full draw distance.  My 1.67GHz CPU, GeForceFX 5200, 512MBs of ram will not run GTA3 at its best.  I'd recommend a P4 2.4GHz, 128MB GeForceFX 5900 non-Ultra or 128MB Radeon 9700 with 512MBs of ram to run the game at its best details.  I run the game at 800×600 and full draw distance with 4×FSAA and 8× Anisotropic filtering.  If you take down the FSAA, you can take up the resolution.

Go to www.entechtaiwan.com/ps to get overclocking software.

Thank you,
