1.Solution: Use the server alt cross and see if it helps as I have a very good PC but I still get crashed as well sometimes but if you use /altcross then it won't crash at most.
Also maybe there is some problem with your Sniper Aim? Do /settings and disable "Simple Sniper Scope" and then try.

2.Solution: Your game crashes whenever you take a aim of sniper. right? Whenever MTA crash, it give you the reason. So about what stuff it says. You have re-installed your GTA:SA but the problem remained same. right? follow the instructions:
It may seems like your GTA:SA setup is currupted i.e I mean to say that your GTA:SA setup don't provide you proper GTA3.IMG. Download the torrent of GTA:SA. This will provide you proper GTA3.IMGDo you use some mods of sniper? if so then check your mods work properly. Many time, mods cause the trouble and these may affect your GTA3.IMG file. If you use any crosshair which is not from CIT but from your GTA3.IMG then fix it or replace it to defaultMods affect your FPS, when your FPS decrease badly, MTA tries to crash your game in order to avoid your processor demage. So, improve your PC. Alternative Solution: You can adjust your graphics. Goto MTA:SA settings>video>800x1200 resolution+windowed. It will improve your FPS and it may decrease your chance of getting  crash.

3.Solution: Change your Sniper Crosshair back to Default from /settings  > Search for "Set Custom sniper crosshair" > Change back to default.

MTA Crashing? Read Here First!
Show content
If your GAME crashes on startup or during game load, download and run MTADiag  and follow the instructions. If MTADiag will not run for you, install Visual C++ 2012 runtimes (download and install vcredist_x86.exe)

Any  Pastebin URL MTADiag gives you send it to me through PM.

If for some reason MTADiag does not function, do the following before creating a new topic:

•   Install the latest patch of MTA:SA

•   Install the latest DirectX runtimes

If installing those does not fix the problem, try:
Delete the gta_sa.set file located in the GTA San Andreas User Files in your Documents folder/library (Windows Vista and 7 users) or My Documents directory (Windows XP users)
Check in your GTA San Andreas installation directory for a D3D9.dll. If one is present, delete it.
If all of the above fail to fix your problem, please send a PM to me and include a dxdiag log by doing the following:
1. Press the Windows key + R
2. Type dxdiag and press Enter; if a dialog box pops up asking you to check for WHQL digital signatures, click Yes
3. Click Save all information...
4. Include the contents of the saved log in your post within [ code ] [ /code ](You don't have to add space between code and brackets)  tags.
Also include any error messages that may appear when your GAME crashes; either copy and paste of the crash log or a screenshot is fine.

Don't force someone to remember you all the time. Just stay silent and let them realize how will they be without you in their life.
