gta san andreas runs well on medium draw distance and low graphic settings, and it's newer than dx2... but then again I remember playing dx2 on my now deceased ailenware notebook and it being rather graphic intensive for the time. perhaps it is still too much for my dime-a-dozen toshiba satellite to swallow.
