Try restarting your computer. Typically, if it's slow, your RAM is full. Restarting your computer often times helps. In addition to this, close all other apps. This not only cuts down on your RAM usage, but also your processor usage. If this doesn't help, you might need to find a faster computer to play it on...

Go to Options>Display>advanced and set the Draw Distance slider to it's lowest position, make sure Frame Limiter is OFF (ignore what the game manual says), Visual FX is on Low, MIP Mapping and Anti-Aliasing are OFF and try a variation of resoluions to see which ones give you the best performance. Also make sure that San Andreas is running in Windows 98/Me mode. To do this, right click on the GTA San Andreas shortcut or .exe and select properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and check Run in Complatibility mode with..., then select Windows 98/Me from the dropbox. This compatibility feature has helped solve many issues with San Andreas running on Windows Vista/7 based PC's and I hope this works for you too. If you are still experiencing bad performance, then there is something more serious that will need to be resolved but for now, try my advice.
